Belfast to get superfast 4G mobile network services by Christmas

The owner of Orange and T-Mobile has announced its plans to launch 4G products and services later this year

Belfast will have superfast 4G products and services in time for Christmas.

Orange and T-Mobile owner Everything Everywhere, which is renamed EE, will make the state-of-the-art technology available to some 20 million people in 16 cities across the UK.

Unveiled at the Science Museum in London, the 4G network, which offers speeds up to five times faster than 3G, will be available on HTC, Samsung, Nokia and Huawei devices, as well as “one more to come”, which is widely expected to be Apple's iPhone 5.

The 4G services will allow uninterrupted access to the web on the go, movies to be downloaded in minutes and TV to be streamed without buffering.

EE gave no specific date but said 4G will be available to customers by Christmas in Belfast.
