O2 announce 4G launch date
For those still with us, the service will initially be available in London, Leeds and Bradford, before a wider rollout by the end of 2013.
O2 say that the basic 4G tariff will cost £26 a month, which is more expensive that EE's cheapest rate of £21 a month.
Telefonica UK's (they own O2) chief executive, Ronan Dunne, said that his firm want to match EE's launch speeds, but acknowledged that his network would be slower. He also added that O2's 4G network would not be compatible with Apple's iPhone 5.
Dunne added that consumers who bought a tariff directly from O2 would get a year's "free music content" and that there would be further announcements to come about gaming.
