When should I expect 4G?
4G mobile services for consumers are currently available through one operator, EE, which has rolled out services in some parts of the UK by using its existing air waves.
Competing services are expected to be made available in late spring or summer 2013 by other mobile companies. This follows the completion of the 4G mobile auction.
In August 2012, Ofcom approved an application by the mobile phone operator Everything Everywhere (EE) to use its existing 1800 MHz airwaves to deliver 4G services. This decision was made after conducting a thorough assessment of how competition might be affected.
Ofcom concluded that consumers would benefit significantly from gaining early access to 4G services, and that there was no material risk that those benefits would be outweighed by a distortion of competition.
