We already know that EE is on the verge of launching the very first 4G LTE network here in the UK “in the coming weeks”. It’s set to revolutionise our lives – albeit, for a small fee – with super fast download and upload speeds that are 10 times faster than 3G.
Using a speed test app, we watched while the iPhone 5 achieved download speeds of up to 33.68Mbps and upload speeds of 17.04Mbps. In case you were wondering, that is fast.
Whether you’ll achieve the same mind-blowing results in the real world remains to be seen, as there will be many factors that will have an affect on its speed – just like 3G – such as location and the number of users online. Of course, this is just a snapshot of what 4G is capable of. Seeing really is believing, so check out our iPhone 5 4G EE speed test video and prepare to be dazzled.
Want to get involved in the 4G action? EE’s trio of 4G-equipped smarties – including the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be on hand to help. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 also plans on joint the 4G fun times on 15 October.
