EE 4G launch

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19543042

 

At present the EE is only on 1800mhz so will have no indoor benifit over 3g 2100mhz

 

I see this all as hype until we see 4g on 800mhz for all networks the indoor benifit will not be seen. in fact 3g900mhz o2 use will be better indoors  just slower than 4g 1800mhz.

 

Just my take on this.

The thing is, will O2 get off their backside and roll out 3G900 quickly - my guess is no. Trying to get 3G when touring this summer has been a nightmare and yet EE seem to have managed to get to places that are only a dream for O2 users.

3G900 indoors? I wish. We have it but are too far from a usable mast. (Liverpool suburbs) My only hope is they start to use the local Vodafone mast soon.

Re: EE 4G launch

Did I read correctly that top speed would be 21mbps?

Of course, there would be very little loading on the test. Not "real world" as yet

They were doing a similar test via some sort of tablets on the ITV lunchtime news. Wasn't convinced of the demo being a speed test type of thing and they were in some hillside in Cumbria by the mast which was probably the next unconvincing factor!

That wouldn't have occurred to Joe Public who now thinks he can geta downstream speed of 33Mbps 24/7/365 Smiley LOL

Re: EE 4G launch
