Talking Three UK to offer 4G for Free!

This is fantastic news, and for all those with unlimited data plans even better!

http://www.slashgear.com/three-promi...r-it-03267965/

I am on the One Plan, so that means unlimited data / tethering!

This is excellent news.

I just hope when it rolls out that I get speeds a little higher than the 0.02kB/s during the day that I get on 3G .

Thats made me a bit happier, considering I've had literally no 3 reception at all today

I cant even phone them to find out why either (its not just me, one of my students is on 3 and had nothing either).

Why would a phone company actually charge for using the latest data technology? We poke fun at our carriers here in Canada but they'd never do that - it's just crooked and wrong!

But good to hear that you're not being ripped off then!

Hearing about this today has made my day, I'm on the One Plan too...in regards to cost and unlimited data, best UK tariff out at the moment if you ask me.

two words make it so... Unlimited tethering!

I know my iPhone 5 which I bought from an apple high street store will run ee ok but not 02 when they roll out 4g/uk lte due to the bands they are bidding for. Many ip5 owners will probably have the option to upgrade their phone through their carrier for a price !!

Do Three UK users even need 4G speeds? The last time I saw Three's 3G DC-HSDPA speeds were like 20+mbps on several devices. That's already very fast.

I get about 18mbps with Three at the moment over 3G, and boy I can't wait for my unlimited LTE.

Depending on how fast it is, I may pay a little extra for the One plan and get me some lovely unlimited tethering.

i need more speed to upload photos and after reading it will work with 3 and ip5 as ofcom forced ee to sell some 4g frequencies to 3

other providers (voda/o2/etc) will have to wait for the iphone to get more freqs

I dunno why other carriers have failed to embrace DC-HSDPA whilst they wait for LTE. I suppose that will make too much logical sense. I'm thinking of leaving O2 for Three at this point in time tbh.
