4G Will Launch In 16 Cities Across The UK

Finally!!! What we Brits have all been waiting for – a higher speed internet connection.

But don’t get too excited only London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, Belfast, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Sheffield and Southampton will be experiencing the high speed internet connectivity by the end of the year. (This is a large amount of cities however they already have the highest speed connections in the UK)

For those living in areas not covered by broadband, this will come as a relevation to you, however you will unfortunately have to wait a little longer for EE (Everything Everywhere) to supply your patch – personally, I feel they should test 4G in the more suburb areas outside these cities and in the countryside as this is where connection speed needs improving most.

“Everything Everywhere, which will now be known as just EE, will continue the rollout into the new year, and aims to provide 4G to 98% of the UK by 2014.” (BBC News Technology)

What comes with 4G? Less chance of you loosing connection, even indoors. There is nothing more annoying than seeing the connection bars decreasing and then the ever dispised X on your connectivity symbol.

More tweeting, more social networking, more blogging, more uploading and downloading – all on the move.

Another step in the right direction for the ever changing media.
