[link to this post]
 
Hi Guys!

I've just moved into a flat in Cardiff near the centre. I went to the shop and pulled out my phone to see the time and was Suprised to see the 4G symbol on my galaxy S4.

So, like any hardcore mobile user i did a speedtest..

My first thought? Holy [censored]!

I was stood here early afternoon

And to prove I am on 3 (one plan). (and yes my name Is John)

You are so lucky, I'm near City of London area at the moment with an unlocked Blackberry Q5 and still getting 3g using my one plan sim-only. Vodafone and O2 4g works well in the area on these handsets, but adds to the cost unlike 3.

That's super fast. If you go to: http://www.three.co.uk/Support/Coverage and enter your post code and then click on the 4G + sign, it will show you the date, when the 4G service will be available in your area.

4G.
Data.
Very good service.
4G is available in this postcode for Three customers from March 2014.

I am not sure if it's because I unlocked my phone to go with ee but I'm on it now. I've been hitting 60mbps + all day.

I can see the tone it's busy but no slow down. It's the same than ee offer on their double speed tariff

I won't abuse it but when I have downloaded it's been good. Three say everyone will have access between Ian and March they mean when you hit a 4g area.

I went to the link and it says from march 2014 but I'm on it now

Wow, that's crazy. Not quite sure what I'd do with it though; probably just look at the big numbers. wink

There doesn't seem to be a date for here in Portsmouth other than 2014 from what I've read on other sites. I usually see 0.8-3mb/s on 3G here although I have hit 20mb/s in less congested areas.

I will edit this when I get home but I've hit 62 earlier. It is a nice touch for 3 I used to get 8-13 at home and was using it as my landmine and was planning to again. With these speeds i defo will! I use the net more than I use anything else so now it's better value

edit: I actually hit 64.

Just wait until everyone is on it. EE's speed have slowed down as more and more people are using it .
