Mobile network operator O2 has announced the roll-out of high-speed 4G mobile broadband in five cities across the UK today, bringing the total to eight.
The 4G network will go live tomorrow in Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield, adding to existing coverage in London, Leeds and Bradford.
Since the network was launched a month ago, O2 says more than 9.5 million people now have the ability to access 4G, which delivers speeds more comparable to home-based broadband than 3G mobile internet.
O2 has also announced that five more cities will receive coverage by the end of 2013.
