This morning, BT finally got back into the mobile game with the (re) launch of BT Mobile, this time as an MVNO for EE – a company BT is in the process of acquiring, subject to regulatory approval. It has been teased on forums and social media for […]
After a release of the 4G version of Motorola’s second generation Moto G in some markets late last year, the company has today announced its UK release. £159 gets you the Moto G 4G (2nd Gen) and it’s on sale now via the Motorola website, and from next week […]
Last year I put EE, O2 and Three to the test in central London to see how 4G was performing. I also tested 3G as not every network was able to offer 4G in the places visited. At the time, Three was yet to launch its fledgling service to the general […]
Besides the awesome Moto G family, Motorola last year introduced an even cheaper entry-level model, the Moto E. And today comes the even faster and more impressive successor.
EE’s announcement of 7.7 million 4G customers is impressive, but even more impressive is the news that 4G data grew massively in 2014 compared to the year before.
It’s nice to see that prepay users are now being offered the chance to enjoy 4G (Vodafone recently allowing its own prepay users 4G access), and having been first to offer superfast speeds to pay as you go users, EE has now made some further tweaks this morning. […]
Three drops unlimited tethering on new SIM-only tariffs, and what it means to new and existing customers
You knew it was coming. We knew it was coming. What nobody knew was exactly when, but that time appears to be now – or certainly this week. (Edit: No, it’s now!)
After recently using donkeys to celebrate the continued expansion of 4G service to smaller towns and villages like West Kirby, EE has today announced the use of cows to provide free Wi-Fi at Glastonbury festival – using EE’s 4G network of course.
EE has this morning announced trials of two new services to improve voice connectivity for its customers, including the introduction of Wi-Fi calling and voice over 4G (VoLTE).
Given EE’s massive head start over the competition, its 4G network is coming on leaps and bounds. And today, EE has announced new mobile broadband tariffs, released three new 4G mobile broadband devices, plus a new own-brand tablet.
It seems that Three is in great need of updating its 4G coverage map, as more and more places are activated without notice.
With every Three customer now activated to use 4G, assuming they have a 4G device and 4G coverage, the 4G mobile broadband products are now starting to arrive.

I’ve talked a lot about Three in the last few months, partly because of the excellent value of the One Plan, and also because of its launch of 4G, which finally happened after a lot of initial confusion. Now, EE has adjusted its own SIM-only deals, so it seems only […]
I list the things that most interest me at MWC, taking place next week.
It’s finally happening! Ordinary customers (as against staff, beta testers, engineers, journalists and bloggers) on Three are finding themselves able to use its new 4G network, subject to having a compatible handset and being in an area of coverage.
Tesco today announced it will no longer charge £2.50 extra per month to allow its customers to use 4G on its pay-monthly tariffs.
As long as I’ve got my 4G enabled SIM, I’ll continue to do testing as I move around London day and night.
As Three begins the process of activating users for its 4G network, I headed into London to do some speed tests and put Three’s 4G service up against EE and O2, as well as pitting 4G versus 3G.
My 4G-activated SIM for Three has arrived! Unfortunately I don’t have 4G at home, so over the coming days I’ll be out and about to do some testing and comparisons, both against Three’s standard DC-HSPA service, as well as other networks (EE & O2). Unfortunately I don’t currently […]
