Nice one! Could you test the speed of the internet please? How long have you had 4g for?

Three told me last night it is still rolling out in phases and they said everyone will have 4G by end of March. They also sent me a text message raising my case to push forward getting 4G. I called and asked them.

Bono, my sig seems to be quite kak
When at home still it's abit better but
Still not as many signalled bars on my
handset as I want

One of my friends told me that they got
Good 4G signal at the Burntree island, West Mids

I've been unable to try as I forgot my phone
A lot this week

Curious to know if 3 have gave me privileges
To 4G

Got my 4G signal this morning. First speedtest gave 27Mb DL but less than 1M UL. Ping was 67ms but I was expecting this to me lower.

Not perfect but OK I guess.

Ah OK cool. Well Three did post recently what customers should expect as realistic speed's. All too often companies say we have 100mb speeds etc yet no one ever gets that high. Highest I've got on Three so far with their HSDPA is 24mbps which is amazing

Yeah, I've achieved 25mb DL so I am expecting quite a big increase from LTE.

That's a nice upload speed I think Three are doing it gradually to make sure things go smoothly. We all recall the complaints from customers about EE

When will I get 4G?
You'll be given the ability to access our 4G network between January and March 2014. Once that's done, and when you're in a 4G area, you'll get 4G on your existing plan. No extra charges, no hidden fees, no new contracts. Just fast, dependable, internet on the go. We're aiming to roll out to 50 cities by the end of 2014 and to cover 98% of the population by the end of 2015. Find out if you're in a 4G coverage area using our coverage checkers.
