Service provider O2 will be testing London’s first 4G mobile network today, helping select users check out just what the future will bring where super fast mobile broadband is concerned. Currently, O2 has 22 million subscribers underneath their belt, making them the UK’s second largest mobile phone network, but the initial city trial will see just a thousand people sign up for it – ranging from businesses to venue owners as well, where they will be given the latest 4G equipment as well as given access to the UK’s largest urban 4G network.
This 4G trial is said to run until June next year, where it might prove to be a watershed moment where the UK ushers in a brand new era of fast mobile broadband. It will still take a fair amount of time before a full-scale city or national roll out happens though. For those who have already experienced the speed of mobile 4G in London, what is your take on it – and will you go back to 3G after getting a taste of the future?
