AFAIK, it's as of yet undecided whether Three will have proper 4G or not.

Well they might not. The auction process is pretty much underway and will be concluded in first half of 2013, if they win some spectrum roll out is expected to commence in June.

Mind you they do have the back up of a small bit of spectrum that they bought from EE that they could use. EE don't have to vacate that until autumn 2013 though and seems unlikely they'd give it away early.

Three will be getting 4G. Says on their website they will.

Just a matter of when and how...

Will 3 change their name to 4 once they have the 4G network capability... given the only reason they are called 3 is their speed to market of the 3G network?

Good question, no-one knows.

Well they haven't been quick to market with 4g...

Doubt they'll change their name but who knows.
Pondlife, i'm confused? Only EE have 4G and no one else does so how can three have marketed 4G?

Didn't say marketed.

prscullion said "given the only reason they are called 3 is their speed to market of the 3G network?"

I said they've not been quick to market with 4g so wouldn't suggest similar name change.

Oh alright, sorry for the confusion. I agree with you.

Now if EE had been called 4 instead that would have made me smile.
