EE 4G rollout commencing October 30, 10 launch cities

EE 4G rollout commencing October 30, 10 launch citiesEE initially announced its 4G plans back on September 11, and yesterday Jimmy Martinez was jawing about the launch handsets.

Now we’ve finally got a date for EE’s 4G service going live. Friends, set your time machines for October 30.

There’ll be 10 lucky EE 4G cities at launch, namely Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow (yay), Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Sheffield.

However, EE adds: “We aim to cover as much of the 10 cities as we can, but just so you know, all postcodes may not be switched on at the same time”.

By the end of 2012, EE aims to have an additional six cities smothered in 4G, bringing coverage to at least one third of the population. The subsequent six are Belfast, Derby, Hull, Nottingham, Newcastle and Southampton.

The seven EE 4G launch handsets are the iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II, HTC One X+, and Huawei Ascend P1 LTE.

Finally, there’s still no word on EE 4G contract prices, though the Orange T-Mobile conglomerate promises more details are “coming soon”. Hurry up, eh?

Is your city on the EE 4G list? Tempted by a cheeky move to EE, or not moved in the slightest?

It could easily be worse, think same effect on Ballmer or Elop

phew... yeah, you're right. Although, Ballmer already looks as if he was raised in a centrifuge

I'm leaving o2 to go to t-mobile. I'd decided this months ago and was going to go for one of their sim only tariffs. The Lumia 920 changed my mind about sim only.
I'll probably make the move to a 4G tariff if the price is right maybe a few months after it becomes available in my city.

The Lumia 920 looks good, but WP8 hasn't been launched, yet. What if it sucks?

The Lumia 920 looks good, but WP8 hasn't been launched, yet. What if it sucks?

Then i'll not bother with 4G and go for a sim only tariff on t-mobile and continue to use my N8 for a while longer.
