I know that currently only EE (Everything Everywhere) have 4G services in the U.K but when are the other operators starting their 4G services i.e 02 -Three - Vodafone?

As far as I know it'll be this summer or there about. The bidding for the 4G auctions have started just the other week from the other networks.

The winners of the 4G auction will be expected to launch their services by summer this year.

Ok thanks!

I'm looking for a new 4G contract and right now my choices are rather narrow so that's why i wanted to know but i may just go with EE because i cant hang out till the summer and EE have just dropped their 4G tariffs aswell.

I hope Three come up with an unlimited 4G tariff. I mean,4G has much larger capacity anyway. But shouldn't Three change it's name to Four

They're promising not to raise prices when there 4G is rolled out.

"As we add the next wave of technology to our Ultrafast network, we’ve listened to our customers and thought long and hard about the right way to do it. We don’t want to limit Ultrafast services to a select few based on a premium price and we’ve decided our customers will get this service as standard."

I think EE really shot themselves in the foot by expecting people to pay more for miniscule amounts of data. it won't be hard for the others to undercut them.

I'm due an upgrade in September so I'm well looking forward to the 4G battle that will ensue
I hope that 3 does knock em all dead with their tariffs.
