    So its not quite everything...and it most definitely is not everywhere. They should be branded...'everything everywhere eventually'.

    I still hate that name, from someone who was a fan of t-mobile and orange!

    It's also fairly awkward to say, for a brand name.

    Hmm, I wonder if they're going to do the bone-headed move of only allowing "their" (=locked) devices on the new network? (As I believe some US networks are trying to do).

    Just thinking that the Australian version of the S3 would be nice to have - it supports the 1800 band, and it looks like a combo of the best features of the US and International versions (quad core and 2GB RAM).

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    It's not as simple as dual vs quad core; the quad uses A9 cores but the dual uses Krait cores, which are similar to A15, so you'll get better performance in most apps with the dual core.

    BTW,the network is basically the operating name of the company behind T-Mobile and Orange:

    Re: News - Everything Everywhere now an official brand, 4G in 16 cities

    Good news from EE today really - confirming a UK rollout of LTE which is brilliant (we're only a couple of years behind the times for a change), whilst at the same time effectively confirming the iPhone 5 as a launch device ("We'll be offering handsets from Samsung, HTC and Huawei and... one more thing... other firms soon." - read between the lines).

    I just hope that you don't need a special plan to get 4G access - hopefully it's just a device. Or if they do make it an extra cost or requires a new contract, I hope they make it easy for people like me (14 months into a 24 month contract) to switch without paying off the rest of my current contract.

    4G to Manchester before christmas too..shaping up to be a good week in the mobile sector!

    Apparently you don't say 'Everything everywhere', just 'E E'. Still an odd brand name, but at least it's short now...

    re: and more (likely apple's iPhone 5)

    Not if the current LTE patent is upheld for HTC/Samsung (see other hexus article). I take it the others are licensed?

    Typical that it's coming to soton just months after I left there,
    With the speedy rollout though there should be enough coverage to warrant going 4g in my next upgrade

    I'd like phone companies to improve 3G access first. The coverage is still rubbish, can barely get GPRS in lots of villages in Scotland

    GPRS (on the subject of connection type) is 2G. Coverage isn't likely to be great in less densely populated areas (it's not profitable), but as has been said elsewhere, 4G should give much improved coverage per mast vs existing technologies.

    Re: News - Everything Everywhere now an official brand, 4G in 16 cities

    What I tried to say, but didn't do a good job of making clear, is that there are heaps of areas that would benefit from 3G but you can barely get 2G there.

    Eg, sitting outside pub in Stonehaven (large town NE Scotland) I would expect to get 3G but no, it's GPRS.

    I'd expect to get 3G outside my flat in North London but in many spots I don't on Vodafone and didn't on Orange before EE, sometimes the landscape and buildings make it hard to achieve. Different networks suffer in different ways too thanks to line of sight from mast locations and frequency differences, 3 and T-Mobile deliver full 3.5G in the same spots.
