Campaign to speed up 4G roll-out

Mobile network Everything Everywhere has taken fresh steps to lobby for 4G data services in the UK.

The firm is urging business leaders and consumer champions to join 4GBritain – a campaign calling on the government “to do whatever is necessary to move forward” with the roll-out.

The network operator’s chief executive said the UK needed to catch up.

The sale of the 4G spectrum has been delayed by operators fighting over how to distribute the airwaves.

Experts predict that the telecoms regulator Ofcom may have to go to court before the auction goes ahead.

Everything Everywhere (EE) – the merger between T-Mobile and Orange – has kickstarted the campaign, but potential members are promised that they will be treated as “an equal partner”, according to a document seen by the BBC.

“This is a call for attention to be brought to this issue, to stop battling in the background and let us catch up with the other 34 countries that have already launched 4G services,” said a spokeswoman for EE.

Olaf Swantee, chief executive of EE since September, told the BBC that he was surprised how far behind the UK was.
