Well in the UK and want to experience the 4G LTE new iPad you need to head to Newquay or St. Newlyn in Cornwall where two cell sites have been upgraded by Everything Everywhere and BT. There is also talk of a trial in Bristol !
For the rest of use we need to wait for OFCOM to auction the spectrum and the UK operators to build out their new 4G networks… Perhaps another 2 years ?
Of course HSPA is slowly rolling out around the UK, offering speeds approaching LTE, but LTE offers much greater capacity for data traffic which is of course increasingly the important factor.
You could head East of course to France, Germany, Sweden etc to try LTE now..
Welcome to the wireless slow lane..
