New 4G superfast broadband was launched across the UK yesterday, marking a new era for mobile phone users.
Offering internet speeds up to five times faster than 3G, the service is now available in 11 cities across the country, including London, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff and Edinburgh.
Launched by the network EE, which owns Orange and T-Mobile, the new range of products and services will be available on the Apple iPhone 5 and devices including HTC, Samsung and Nokia.
The service will allow uninterrupted access to the web on the go, high definition films to be downloaded in minutes and television can be streamed without buffering.
The company plan to roll out 4G to further cities by the end of 2012, aiming to cover 70% of the country by some time next year.
There has been heavy criticism for EE's 4G pricing plans, as customers can expect additional charges for going over tarriff download limits.
The company is currently the sole UK provider of superfast services until next year, with Vodafone and O2 being able to offer their own 4G plans from next spring.
