The UK's first fourth generation (4G) mobile service will launch in 16 UK cities before the end of the year.

Everything Everywhere, which will now be known as just EE, will continue the rollout into the new year, and aims to provide 4G to 98% of the UK by 2014.

Matthew Howett, lead analyst on Telecoms Regulations at Ovum, discussed what he thinks the impact of 4G will be.
