Which UK network will be first to offer 4G?

Will all the UK networks offer 4G from the same time or is one expected to be earlier? This might be a factor when choosing my new contract! Thanks!

This really depends where you live. Orange and T-Mobile have been trialling 4G in some places like Bristol and Cornwall, O2 have been testing in Slough, London and there may be some other trials from other companies taking place that we don't know about.

However, given the problems that Ofcom have been having with licensing and the technical difficulties and cost involved, it may be 2014 or even 2015 before the UK gets any meaningful 4G coverage! Therefore, I wouldn't recommend basing a purchase this year on 4G availability.
