O2 and Vodafone complain about Ofcom 4G plans
Ofcom's decision to approve Everything Everywhere's rollout of 4G hasn't exactly been popular. Vodafone spat teeth about it all and today, O2 has publicly voiced their anger.
O2 have said that Ofcom is contradicting itself by allowing EE to rollout 4G using its 1800MHz spectrum before rivals get the chance to. The firm believe that this gives EE an unfair advantage, which goes against Ofcom's aim to deliver a competitive market.
O2 said in a statement: " We are concerned that Ofcom's other proposal to allow one operator to launch 4G early on its existing spectrum is contradictory to its objective of delivering a competitive market environment with four competing players. This could expose the process to further risk of delay."
Vodafone of course, had a little outburst earlier this week and accused Ofcom of "taking leave of its senses" about the whole thing. Of course, it is nice to see Vodafone spitting their dummy out when you think of that gigantic tax bill they dodged.
Three are yet to make their views known about the whole thing, but unless they adopt an incredibly swearing policy, no-one really cares do they?
