EE extends superfast 4G network in Galloway and West Dumfries

Last updated:

EE today switched on eight new superfast 4G mobile sites in the Galloway and West Dumfries area.

The new sites provide 4G to large sections of roads that previously had no mobile coverage, including the A702, A713, A716, A747, A746, B793, B7005, and the B7052.

The 4G coverage expansion is part of EE’s ongoing investment to provide coverage for the new Emergency Services Network, which will connect 300,000 UK emergency services personnel.

Local residents, businesses and tourists in Drummore, Rhins, Port Logan, Mochrum, Parton and Loch Ken will now be able to access 4G – some for the first time in the area.

Finlay Carson, MSP for Galloway and West Dumfries, commented:

“I welcome EE’s investment in our digital infrastructure. Improving mobile signal is a key way of helping rural areas compete and I’ve long called for such improvements to be made. The new masts will provide additional coverage for many new residents and businesses as well as helping with tourism. I understand that some sections of roads will now have a mobile signal for the very first time.”

Marc Allera, CEO of EE, said:

“Connectivity on these roads and in these communities is much needed. 4G is making a huge difference to people across rural Scotland, and eight more new sites here in Galloway and West Dumfries will be a boost for this area.”

Across the UK, EE is building and upgrading more than 100 sites to 4G every week as part of its network expansion. Some of these sites add new coverage while some increase signal strength, capacity and reliability in areas with existing coverage. EE’s 4G network, which covers more than 85% of the UK geography, has the fastest 4G speeds for streaming, downloading and video sharing.
