We're not in a hole. A lot of companies would like to be in our hole - Scott 'touch'n'feely' McNealy
A MASSIVE 84 percent of INQUIRER readers have said that they will switch to Everything Everywhere to get their mitts on 4G connectivity, signalling a likely boom in customers for the mobile network.
Last month, Ofcom ruled that Everything Everywhere, the joint venture of operators Orange and T-Mobile, could use its existing 1800MHz spectrum to deliver LTE, essentially giving it the greenlight to roll out 4G services later this month.
With 4G set to arrive in what could be just one week, we asked our readers whether they would switch, or stick to, Everything Everywhere to take advantage of its high-speed LTE connectivity.
An impressive 84 percent of INQUIRER readers voted that they would, clearly excited about the prospect of 4G connectivity coming to the UK. Just four percent of readers voted that they would only switch if the price was right too, suggesting that the majority of people are willing to fork out for high-speed mobile internet.
On the other hand, a further four percent of our readers said they wouldn't shift to or stick with Everything Everywhere because of its poor 3G coverage. Two percent said they wouldn't because they'd rather wait for Three, which bought some of Everything Everywhere's 4G spectrum to launch LTE connectivity. Still, with a number so low, things aren't looking great for the numerical network.
Everything Everywhere is allowed to start the rollout of its 4G services from 11 September, just one day ahead of the rumoured launch date of the next generation Apple Iphone. µ
