      I believe orange and t mobile are wanting to bring an implementation of 4g out this year. I think vodaphone and o2 were kicking up a stink saying it should have to wait until the 4g spectrum auction has been compleated.

      I can see this whole 4G roll-out get very messy if we are not careful, what with mobile networks moaning at each other. At least EE are trying to push things forward. Worth pointing that Everything Everywhere and O2 (and possibly others) are already installing 4G equipment on masts, it's just that they are not switching anything on yet.

Their standard internet booster offers you 750Mb a month. They also offer a 'extra' internet booster which gives you 1.5Gb monthly allowance for around 13 extra a month or their 'super' internet booster which gives you a 5Gb allowance for around 20 extra a month. All boosters include a WiFi allowance at BT Openzone hotspots.

      Both the extra and super boosters also include tethering (but only when on a pure T-Mobile signal and not currently the shared T-Mobile/Orange signal, although I believe this will change soon). Full Monty unlimited data is now also available on SIM only (but that does not include tethering for some silly reason).

      T-Mobile also just have a FUP policy so even if you go over the allowance, they just slow you down and don't charge you any extra until your next billing date.

      O2 seem to be the most stingy mobile provider now when it comes to data allowances!!
      Ok not bad but when you think about live HD streaming those allowances soon go PDQ , also 3.5Mb is around the min you need to stream HD
