Vodafone remains displeasured Everything Everywhere, the joint 4G venture of T-Mobile and and Orange, has issued an inevitably upbeat response to the news that OFCOM has granted the operator first dibs on the UK's LTE services. The reaction is something of a polar opposite to that of disgruntled party, Vodafone, earlier today. "Ofcom's decision to make 4G available this year is great news for the UK," said an Everything Everywhere spokesperson. "Consumers will soon be able to benefit from the much greater mobile speeds that 4G will deliver. "4G will drive investment, employment and innovation and we look forward to making it available later this year, delivering superfast mobile broadband to the UK." Much of the controversy stems from OFCOM's decision to allow T-Mobile and Orange to reallocate part of their existing (non 4G) spectrum to the next generation of communications, where that has been denied to other operators. We expect the grumbling and recriminations to continue throughout the next few days/weeks/months.
