UK 4G LTE MOBILE OPERATOR EE has announced that it will start selling the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE from 15 October.
As well as revealing that its first LTE smartphones, including the Iphone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3, have gone on sale from today, EE let slip that it will sell the LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 from 15 October, despite speculation that the handset won't support the 1800MHz spectrum.
While this is good news for those after a 4G capable phablet, we can't see those who picked up the Galaxy Note 2 on Monday as being too pleased.
There's no word on pricing for the Galaxy Note 2 yet, and EE is remaining surprisingly coy about the whole thing. This makes us think that 4G LTE price plans here in Blighty aren't going to be very cheap, possibly ranging between £45 and £50 a month.
EE is expected to start rolling out its 4G LTE network within the "coming weeks," after O2 and Vodafone decided yesterday that they weren't going to kick up a fuss about the network's head start.
The UK mobile network joint venture between Orange and T-Mobile has not yet announced a release date for its 4G LTE service, but we're putting our money on 15 October . µ
