Following in the footsteps of EE which already has LTE available in the U.K., carrier O2 has announced that it will launch its higher speed network as well at the end of August. O2 says that the network will go live on August 29th in London, Leeds and Bradford with a total of 10 cities going live with the network by year's end.
That still puts O2 in a tough position, as EE already operates its network in some 95 markets. Additionally, O2 hasn't given detailed information about the monthly prices or data allowances on LTE plans aside from a quoted "basic" 4G tariff of £26 per month. It's clear that O2 has a long ways to go before it will be drawing anyone to its LTE network.
