Spanish telecom operator Telefonica's UK subsidiary O2 is all set to launch its 4G LTE network in UK on August 29, 2013. Initially the O2 4G mobile networks will launched in three cities include London, Leeds and Bradford. The service will be later on extended to 10 more cities before the end of this year.
Currently EE is the top network provider which offers 4G network across 95 cities in UK. Its lowest rate per month is £21 for both voice and data, or £15 per month for just data alone. O2 has still to announce its lowest rates but its basic 4G rate will be £26 per month. Telefonica UK's CEO, Ronan Dunne told BBC that O2 is meant to compete with EE in speeds but the network speed would be slow in start. He also revealed that Apple's iPhone 5 will not work on O2's 4G network yet it works on rival EE's 4G network. But the company will resolve this issue as his CEO said that he "would be frankly gobsmacked if their roadmap didn't address that issue".
