Full speed ahead for 4G – well not quite, but better than it was.

The news from the government that discussions with Vodafone and O2 are in flow regarding the roll out of the 4G spectrum is refreshing, I feared a nasty legal battle with restrictions going in place instructed by European courts to prevent any 4G service in the UK until it was an equal playing field.

It would seem that the majority of us may see the faster speeds that 4G is capable of  much sooner than we first expected with the summer of 2013 being touted as a popular timeframe for UK wide availability.

To check out the speeds it is capable of have a look at this video courtesy of the tech team at The Daily Telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/apple/9582448/4G-vs-3G-mobile-networks-go-head-to-head-in-iPhone-5-speed-test.html

The other great news is that the 4G spectrum auction is set to raise £2-£4 billion for the exchequer, oh hang, who is in control of that??
