4G put to the test

As I predicted, peace has broken out in the 4G wars that have pitched the operators against Ofcom. The deal unveiled by the Culture Secretary Maria Miller on Tuesday night should see all the operators offering 4G by next summer.

But in the short term, EE - the owner of Orange and T-Mobile - will have the field to itself.

I got the chance to test its 4G network against an existing 3G service. Obviously this isn't at all fair - 4G with a couple of journalists using it should do much better than 3G crammed with thousands of users. Watch the test to get a flavour of what we can expect from the new technology.
