Norwich is among the latest batch of UK cities to be supplied with the new 4G mobile internet speeds.
The 4G network, which offers speeds up to five times faster than 3G, is now available to businesses and personal customers provided by digital communications company, EE.
Access to superfast 4G mobile internet means people in the city can benefit from superfast internet access on mobiles, tablets and laptops.
Norwich is one of 160 places across the UK with the service, and Norfolk Chamber of Commerce chief executive Caroline Williams said it meant the city was now set to benefit.
She said: “Up until now Norwich has been among the ‘have-nots’. 4G is the way forward and it’s great news that Norwich has been recognised as the vibrant business centre that it is.
“We look forward to EE and other providers of 4G coming to Norfolk as soon as possible.”
Olaf Swantee, chief executive officer at EE, said: “With every new town and city we switch on, the 4G revolution picks up pace.
“By Christmas, 160 places across the UK had 4G access, meaning that people and businesses can do more, trade more and connect more.
“That’s the fastest rollout of 4G in Europe, and with well over one million people already using the service, one of the most successful too.”
EE is aiming for 98pc of the UK population to be covered by the end of 2014.
