O2 has announced plans to launch their own 4G network, beginning in three cities on August 29th. The network is to switch on first in London, Bradford and Leeds, with an extra ten cities by the end of the year.
2,845 O2 UK customers will receive a letter from porn makers Ben Dover Productions demanding payment over claims of copyright infringement.
So O2 haven't exactly been the most reliable network over the last couple days. A huge amount of customers have been affected by the network outages across the country, so many have taken to Twitter to vent their anger. Luckily, the in-house social media team of @O2 were waiting, with some rather hilarious responses.
O2 has commenced testing of their 4G LTE network in Central London for a course of 9 months, providing speeds to hundreds of test subjects of 50mbps realistically (150mbps theoretically).
Both consumers and business users alike will be involved in the testing of O2's recently installed Long Term Evolution (LTE) network across parts of the City, providing download capabilities many times faster than those over 3G.
