Everything Everywhere To Sell UK 4G Spectrum 16

judgecorp writes "UK operator Everything Everywhere is opening up the market for 4G services by selling some 1800MHz spectrum. Real 4G is slow to arrive in Britain as the big spectrum auction is still stalled, but Everything Everywhere is planning to deliver LTE services this year. European competition law required Everything Everywhere to sell spectrum to its rivals when it was formed from the UK networks of T-Mobile and Orange."

    They lease spectrum, towers and equipment from the actual providers (O2, iirc) and essentially piggyback their network. Telco mobile are somewhat notorious for getting the short end of the stick whenever there is network congestion.
