Big news for 4G iPhone users in the uk. Three UK plans to separate itself from its competitors by charging £12 (~$19) per month on a rolling one-month contract. 4g will be part of their standard service and not a seperate offering like EE, Orange and T-mobile
Well if you missed all the news that Apple let slip on their website, the iPhone 5 is now officially with us. It’s got everything the 4S has — but thinner, lighter, better, and smaller. This article is scattered to say the least so bear with me whilst I try to collate the masses of information from the Apple 2012 Announcement.
More details are spilling out on the official day that the UK get’s it’s very of 4G network. Four UK cities – London, Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff – had their 4G signals switched on today with another 12 ready to offer. Also announced are the official handsets which are ready for launch day
but no mention of the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 is officially supported and will be ready for EE launch.
EE will also launch superfast 4G mobile and fixed-line fibre broadband services in the coming weeks. It will also offer standard broadband via ADSL in non-fibre areas.
In the last 24 hours there has been a lot of press around both the Everything Everywhere brands (Orange and T-Mobile) regarding 4G.
Everything Everywhere value their affiliates and would like to send this official communication confirming that they are delighted at Ofcom’s decision and they look forward to launching 4G soon.
The company will also be launching a new third brand which will sit alongside Orange and T-Mobile.
You couldn’t help but notice that the UK will start to get 4g rollout this year as early as september thanks to Everything Everywhere but now UK network operator Three (who won the best value sim for your iPad / iPhone) are also joining the party. Three is a network that’s more aimed at Data so it shouldn’t be surprising they’ve joined the 4g party.
