So is this proper 4g or the Faux G like the Americans have?
Should be proper 4G but they seem to be holding things up with this auction. Get on with it already as my next phone is out in a few weeks (sIII hopefully).
Don't really see the point in 4G until data allowance rise. It's like the whole broadband fiasco again but magnified 100x worse.
Hell, I am on one of oranges top packages and get a whopping 750mb/month allowance. I'm afraid to go to youtube unless I'm on wifi......

The problem is, that wifi is only in one location, and not exactly mobile.
Theres only one network that should be allowed to buy 4G and that is Three... Why..... Because their the only network that give a **** about people using mobile data and offer true unlimited data allowance. All the other networks don't need 4g until they sort out their existing data packages.
I think the trouble is most consumers aren't as well informed as the Hexus/Tech Blog readers and don't know what what how little 100MB/250MB is. Even as somebody who understands this I find it difficult to quantify into something my mum would understand.
I am looking forward to the increase in speed and coverage although i'm of the same opinion as others here with regards to the data allowance, whats the point in having awesome speed when you can't use it for fear of being charged by the MB when you go over the abysmal allowances offered?!!
The problem is that on 3G unlimited data does not not make money and congests an already congested network so why would the major networks want to offer it. 3 does it because its needed to grab punters and so was prepared to take the hit.
Hopefully 4G will alleviate the capacity issue and make it more economical so data packages can become more generous.
When data was unlimited, it was a non-issue, but with most users having stupid restrictions on their mobile phone data limits (250-750MB a lot of the time, with 1GB for the highest tier), it's going to be nonsense unless O2 drops this high concept of download limits.
I'm not far away from moving from O2 to Three mobile. I do actually still have unlimited data on my O2 contract, due to how old it is, but the price I pay for what I get is no longer viable, given that I've long since passed my contract date.
With regards the truly unlimited, I think the people who've been kicked off wouldn't agree
Who do Three piggy back with these days when you can't get a Three signal?
It used to be O2, but I think it's changed in recent years.
They share masts with T-mobile/Orange, but they don't piggy back of no one anymore. If you can't get their signal, you don't get a signal anymore - but their coverage is much better than in the early days.
