UK has no 4G LTE Network, but will have it in Time for iPhone 5 Launch

The news that Everything Everywhere (a joint company between Orange and T-Mobile) will launch 4G LTE network service on September 11 made me realize for the first time that the UK does not have a 4G network service. The frequency auctions for 4G LTE service is supposed to take place in 2013.

Everything Everywhere was able to get the government to agree to use their 1800Mhz frequency band for 4G LTE, enabling them to be first with 4G LTE service launching just a day ahead of the rumored iPhone 5 announcement.

If Everything Everywhere is actually getting the iPhone 5 and has a decent 4G coverage all other UK carriers will lose marketshare big time.

Usually though a 4G LTE network launches in a small scale. We all know how limited the coverage areas of the US carriers are. Anyway the Everything Everywhere 4G LTE launch adds some spice to the iPhone 5 launch in the UK. We will see what goes down next month.
