Three 4G launching next week in four towns and cities
Three will launch its 4G network in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Reading on the 13th December and aim to have 50 cities with 4G by the end of 2014. The launch follows a successful employee trial during November.
Three will be last of the UK’s main mobile operators to launch its 4G network. They have a lot of catching up to do particularly when you consider EE launched its 4G network over a year ago.
Three will offer its 4G at no extra cost, there's no need to change your SIM and you will be automatically connected when it arrives in your area.
Three have stated that they aim to have 8 million customers connected to 4G by April, 2014 and have 50 cities with 4G connectivity by the end of 2014. The company plan to have 98% of the population with 4G coverage by the end of 2015.
Three chief executive Dave Dyson said: “We are building a brand and network that encourages and enables customers to enjoy the mobile internet. Customers are using more data than ever on Three, far more than on any other network. As we add 4G capacity to the network, this experience will only get better.”
Three have adopted a different strategy to EE, Vodafone and O2 when it comes to 4G. Three will offer 4G in a hassle and cost free way, as opposed to the other operators who require you to opt in to 4G and charge a premium for the service.
