You want 4G? Tough. You'll have to wait a bit longer
The Government were all set to start auctioning off the spectrum for 4G services, but because they're hugely incompetent boobs, the whole thing has been delayed, which means we'll all have to wait if we want some super duper phone action.
This will see us poor gits in the UK falling even further behind those lucky blighters in the US as we'll have to hang around, staring at our useless phones 'til the second quarter of 2012... at the earliest.
It was expected that Ofcom would be selling off the spectrum this month. Sadly, mobile operators including O2, threatened legal action, which means that the roll out of 4G licenses will be delayed.
The knock-on of this means that the bigger operators can take advantage as they already have excess spectrum which they can use for 4G.
Realistically, we won't be seeing 4G until 2013.
