Hey guys, do you think that O2 will release or has in the pipe line for them to enable 4G+ (like EE has at the moment on there network?)
Would be great if they could, O2 network speeds on 4G are not the best - I average out around 20 to 30 mbps?

I had a look at this sometime last week and there was this article on pcadvisor
My understanding is the 4G+ is the same as LTE-A (an article on the ee site pretty much says this) its a branding thing (correct me if Im wrong, honestly, I work in accounts and litigation, I am no mobile engineer).
Anyway looking at the article above 4G is meant to deliver minimum speeds of 100Mbits/s and 1Gbit/s when stationary, according to the blurb on EE you can get speeds of up to 90mbits/s which I assume means, you can get those speeds if your right next to a tower, and you are the only person in a forty mile radius using the phone.
(Bear with me I am going somewhere with this)
So reading between the lines rather than 4G+ this is just an improved implementation of the 4G protocol. Now I did read another article that I now cannot find relating to the technological impact of the O2/3 merger, claiming that the merger would naturally lead to an increase in the efficiency of the 4G network to these speed due to the increased bandwith, which is what currently limits O2.

Near 60 on a good day round here, I believe jonsie or Adam picked it up before (can't remember who lol) and got near 60 too
