More rural locations added in ESN build-out
EE has completed its 500th new Emergency Services Network site, located in Glencoe, Scotland.
Speaking of the build-out process, ESN managing director at EE, Richard Harrap, said: “With the Emergency Services Network, we are focused on building the coverage where [users] need it most, to ensure they can best protect and serve society.
“Our new site builds - alongside the upgrades to existing 4G masts for ESN - has meant expanded coverage in rural and hard-to-reach areas. We’re welcoming other operators to share these sites to reduce the amount of infrastructure on the ground.”
Digital infrastructure minister Matt Warman said: "[With ESN] we’re creating a world-class communication system for the emergency services. This significant investment from EE provides resilience and assurance for the residents, businesses and tourists of Glencoe.”
EE plan to add a hundred more ESN sites in the coming months.
