The UK's biggest mobile network operator EE has said it is "firmly on track" with growth plans after reporting despite a 1.1% fall in revenue.

EE posted revenues of £1.469 billion in the first three months of the year.

The network operator said it is "firmly on track" to hit its target of 14 million 4G customers by the end of 2015 after it gained 1.7 million in the first quarter.

EE, which has 30 million customers, is currently the subject of a takeover bid from BT. The deal is currently awaiting approval from regulators.
