The auction of 4G licenses in the 800MHz and 2.6GHz spectrum bands is still under way in the UK, but mobile operator Three is already promising that it will offer 4G LTE services on its network at no extra charge later this year.
Ofcom published proposals on Friday to liberalise all mobile licences in the 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz frequency bands - previously restricted to 2G and 3G technologies - to permit the deployment of 4G services.
