The UK Galaxy S4 pre-order process has started, and we gathered all the available offers from carrier and electronics retailers in this UK Galaxy S4 pre-order shopping guide.
Ofcom, the UK telecommunications regulator, has released the results of the UK’s 4G auction. The winners are Everything Everywhere, Hutchison 3G UK (Three), Niche Spectrum Ventures (a BT subsidiary), Telefonica, and Vodafone.
If you’re looking for a new contract from EE and don’t want to pay for a new phone, then the HTC One SV LTE may be the device for you. It’s free with a new contract.
There are a number of variables that can influence LTE speeds, especially soon after a network’s inception, so when EE flipped the switch on “true 4G” for the first time in UK, there were those who preferred caution to overexcitement.
It is all well and good having advanced Android phones with support for 4G LTE technology, but those in the UK (which has a population in excess of 60 million people and in Europe has a standard of living second only to Luxembourg) have been limited to just one 4G operator.
Those who crave for some 4G LTE speed in the UK have probably been keeping their eyes on EE and its promise to launch the service on October 30th. Well, that day is here, and right on schedule – the high-speed internet service has gone live in 10 cities across the country.
Everything Everywhere (EE), the carrier titan born from the unholy matrimony between Orange UK and T-Mobile UK, has been the first mobile operator in the region to launch its 4G LTE network, although its competitors are also going to get faster data networks soon.
The merger between Orange and T-Mobile UK is almost complete, with the new Everything Everywhere brand and its oft-lauded 4G service set to launch on October 30. As part of the rebranding process, EE also plans to redesign its outlets across the country.
EE has officially announced it will launch its 4G service in the UK on October 30th in ten lucky cities. What does that mean for the rest of the UK carriers? Telecommunications watchdog Ofcom has now confirmed that 4G services will reach the other carries starting around the spring and summer of 2013.
While 4G LTE networks tend to be the standard in the United States, Europe is still only making baby steps in replacing 3G with the next generation of download and upload speeds. Things are starting to get a move on in the UK however, where EE (formerly known as Everything Everywhere) is planning to launch 4G LTE in time for the holidays.
