Mobile internet Speeds to get 16 Times FASTER with SUPER-Fast 4G services set for 2013

Posted on: March 25, 2011

  • Licences for high-frequency analogue TV bandwidth could raise billions
  • Broadband-speed mobile network will be available in all corners of Britain
  • Britain already behind U.S. and Japan who have 4G networks
  • Hopes that 4G could raise as much as sale of 3G for £22.5bn

Mobile phone networks will be able to provide internet speeds up to 16 times faster than current technologies after Ofcom unveiled plans for 4G coverage.

The telecoms regulator has announced an auction for the right to provide high-speed services to consumers and businesses in a sale that could raise more than £10billion for the Treasury.

It is envisaged that four companies would buy the right to offer 4G services – already available in the U.S. – from 2013.

Typically, they should offer speeds of 4 to 8 megabits per second (Mbps), compared with the 0.5 to 2 Mbps of most existing 3G services which currently connect hi-tech handsets such as the iPhone to mobile masts and the web.

The speedier system will allow people to smoothly stream high-definition TV and films on their smartphones, laptops and tablets on the go.

However, rural areas may face a long wait for the mobile revolution, as successful bidders will have until 2017 to achieve coverage for 95 per cent of the country.

The auction of 3G licenses in 2000 raised £22.5billion for the Government, but analysts argue that the major networks paid far too much and, consequently, offers will be much lower this time around.

Some suggest the total raised early next year could be around £4billion, while others are expecting more than £10billion.

The auction will cover two significant spectrum bands within the so-called ‘sweet spot’ which is most suitable for mobile communications – 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz – made available as a result of the Government’s decision to end analogue TV broadcasts in a switch to digital transmissions.

Ofcom chief executive Ed Richards said 4G offers ‘much better data services and therefore all the kind of things you can get on your broadband at home or in your office and that you aspire to do through your smartphone or tablet computer and so forth, that is exactly what 4G services will enable.

The biggest American mobile phone companies – Verizon Wireless and AT&T – back a 4G network powered by Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology.

Verizon launched its LTE network in December, promising speeds up to 10 times faster than its current 3G network. It is planning full nationwide coverage by 2013.

AT&T this week bought T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39billion (£24billion), creating the largest US wireless network.

The German government raised 50billion euros (£43.6bn) at its 3G auction in 2000, but managed to raise only 4.3bn euros (£3.7billion) at its 4G auction last year.

Companies such as Vodafone, which made the biggest bid of £5.96billion for a slice of the 3G bandwidth, were also criticised after they failed to invest in infrastructure afterwards.
