Carrier 3 To Launch 4G LTE In 4 British Cities By The End Of 2013
More details concerning carrier 3's plans for its own 4G LTE network in the British Isles have appeared online. Over at its website, the carrier has confirmed that four British cities will be able to access its forthcoming 4G LTE network by the end of 2013. The lucky cities are London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Reading. In addition, Oldham, Dudley, West Bromwich, and Wolverhampton will also be able to connect to 3's super fast network by the end of the year. However, 3's plans for 2014 are grand: an additional 50 cities will receive 4G LTE coverage, and by the end of 2015, 3 aims to have 98 percent of the British population covered.

That being said, EE's super fast network has been available since October 2012, and will naturally be ahead of its competition when it comes to reliability and coverage. We'll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
