Thanks to the kind team at O2, I have managed to get myself onto the very limited trial of 4G LTE in London currently being run by O2 UK who are owned by Telefonica. Currently a 40km section of the capital has been enabled with this new LTE technology which promises speeds up to and around 100Mbs!, far far superior to anything we have seen on HSPA+ at the moment
In fact when in Barcelona we were lucky enough to witness LTE from Telefonica running at a top speed of 97.7Mbs at one point.
Again I must stress this is a trial with limited places so we are very grateful to O2 for allowing us to take part and show off the future of mobile phone technology.
The picture above is of the Samsung B3730 dongle which is the device that will allow me to get super fast speeds on my laptop.
Normal setup was easy plugging in the device after downloading some software from a trial site as I have a Mac computer and we were up and running!. The SIM card is only enabled for 4G signals so I cannot test where I am right now.
I will be in London for a few days next week just for getting the 4G signal needed for this to work and to show off the speeds possible so check back on Thursday and Friday for coverage on LTE.
