Three UK set to launch 4G mobile connectivity

Three UK customers are set to benefit from superfast mobile internet with the rollout of 4G connectivity later in 2013.
It was announced by the operator today (February 4th) that it will be providing consumers with the broadband across all existing and new price plans at no additional charge.
The extra airwaves will be added to Three’s Ultrafast network, which is supported by DC-HSDPA technology and already covers 55 per cent of the UK population.
Dave Dyson, the telecommunications firm’s chief executive, said people choose Three because they know they will receive great speeds, value-for-money and support from a network that listens to consumers.
“We don’t want to limit Ultrafast services to a select few based on a premium price and we’ve decided our customers will get this service as standard,” he remarked.
People with certain mobile devices, such as Apple’s iPhone 5, the Sony Xperia Z and Nokia’s Lumia 920, can already enjoy Three’s Ultrafast services and are in line to receive the 1,800Mhz spectrum when it is launched later this year.
This comes after the operator approached mobile regulator Ofcom alongside Vodafone to ask for permission to launch 4G connectivity to 4G internet customers.
