The 2100MHz 3G frequency has been in use by all the UK operators for a long time. Now EE are refarming the spectrum so that it’ll power 4G instead. This effectively means that EE will have five “carriers” of the 4G signal – more than any other UK …

No more 3G from me, says Three

Not too long ago you would still be able to buy phones which wouldn’t have 4G capabilities. The KAZAM Tornado 348 sticks in my head as one of these but hey, that was 2015 and KAZAM went pop anyway. Now, in 2018, you’d be hard-pushed to get a …
