Everything Everywhere, the company that formed as a direct result of T-mobile and Orange’s merger in the UK announced today that it would be launching as the UK’s first 4G LTE network under the brand name EE. I’m not sure if it’s pronounced as two separate E’s, or if it’s more phonetic. I guess time will tell on that one.
That’s beside the point. During the iPhone 5 announcement, you, my fellow British folk will be delighted to learn that Apple’s new smartphone will be compatible with EE’s network bandwidths. This could really play in to EE’s favour, giving it time to establish itself as the exclusive LTE carrier for the iPhone.
There’s nothing on EE’s website about pricing or price-plan information just yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do. I’m personally hoping they’ll stick to T-mobile’s Full Monty pricing, and give me unlimited data. But, that’s probably wishful thinking on my part.
