I think Three will do an unlimited plan.

They have already said that their will be no Price Increase for 4G over 3G so I would assume that means that anyone on The One Plan (like me) will get to keep their current price and unlimited coneection once 4G comes along

Switched to Be* since BT decided I am not getting FTTC!

Might go for 2 bonded lines, speed aint bad at the moment

3 already offer the 4G ready LG Google nexus at only £1 per month more than the Samsung Google nexus which is 3G only.

I am not sure what other 4G phones they do or planning to do but my wife is looking at that one to compliment her nexus 7 when her current contract is up in January.

And as the One Plan is truly unlimited with wireless tether able to do six devices I can see them scooping up a lot of customers.

The LG Nexus 4 is 4G but it does not work in the UK!. It only works on the 1700 band which is canada only

If I am wrong then I would love to hear but that's what I've read online. I bought one from google. are you saying theirs is 4G and the one from google isnt? If so im sending mine back lol!

Three has taken the 4G ready sticker off the product page and just put up HSPA+42 ready.

Sounds like somebody jumped the gun at 3 and has now had to take it off.

No matter it looks like a nice phone and it is the front runner for my wife to swap onto when she leaves O2.

It's gorgeous I would highly recommend it!

With the wireless charging it's really nice!.

The phone is off and running from the second it gets to the home screen smile

Well worth it smile

I also remember a quote from 3 that suggested that as their HSDPA network is as fast as most 4G networks will be for a while that they are in no rush to actually roll out 4G so it could be a while before you see it - and if their current network can deliver similar speeds to the first waves of 4G then you have to wonder why as an end user you would actually care if 4G is available.

Well I took my 4G EE sim back because my contract with 3 was always faster. So I would be happy to wait. I live in an around where I get between 8-14 but i've had 27 in some places so I know the network is good.

upload is where 4G can't be beaten I always got 21-22 up but on 3 I get 4.8 which is plenty
