O2's 4G network to switch on from 29th August
Hopefully GiffGaff will follow shortly after.
We’ve just announced that we’ll be launching our 4G network in London, Leeds and Bradford on 29 August. Our ambitious rollout plan means that our 2G, 3G and 4G network will reach 98% of the UK population both indoor and outdoor up to two years earlier than the 2017 regulatory requirement.
By the end of the year, our 4G network will be live in 13 cities. Further detail relating to the specific switch-on dates will be announced over the coming weeks.
London | Birmingham | Leeds | Bradford | Newcastle | Glasgow | Liverpool |
Nottingham | Leicester | Coventry | Sheffield | Manchester | Edinburgh
In addition to smartphone tariffs, business customers will also be offered tariffs for tablets and mobile broadband from launch and Mobile Wifi (Pop Up Office) soon after.
4G networks will provide faster data speeds (up to 5 times faster than 3G*) and a more seamless mobile experience, marking a new generation for the mobile industry.
We believe that 4G is not only going to transform the way businesses work, but also how services are delivered to customers. We will be working with our customers over the coming months to bring the possibilities of 4G to life.

I presume GG will have to work out 4G plans no? Will this mean another amendment to the goodybags to reflect 4G capability or 4G specific bags?
