    Cool news, it hasn't propagated down to London it seems I'm still on HSPA+ although I was reaching 22-25 MB with that it'll be interesting to see what I can reach with 4g on my moto g LTE :)

    The coverage map for my area is hilarious. All the farmers' fields around my village can allegedly get 4G indoors and out (for all the cows and sheep in the barns), but most of the residential roads have either no service or service outdoors only. I can't understand how it works. It's not based on altitude and doesn't appear to have much bearing on the position of mobile phone masts. There's a long thin tract of ground at the edge of the village, which is filled with fishing ponds. Bizarrely, the tract of land is show as having perfect 4G, yet all around it is a dead zone. There's no mobile phone mast there, so what kind of dark magic is that? Maybe the fish are giving off 4G.

    I've been turning on and off the phone a few times but am still getting HSPA+ ( oddly enough it only shows up as H instead if H+ ) maybe by Monday our London masts will allow me in ? lol

    Call quality over 4G is as good as Wi-Fi. Had a 15 min call today and everything was crystal clear. Good job FreedomPop

    I am at Manchester. Right now 0:05 on Monday 16th Nov, still no 4G..sometimes the call made on 3G doesn't have good quality. The other ends told me my voice is breaking, any buds have the similar problem?

    My 4g arrived this morning in Essex.

    Okay, 4G becomes available after I got up around 8:00 am. However 5bar full, download speed is only 8mbps, while upload is 20mbps.

    Really excited to see LTE appear periodically on my phone while at work in Coventry today. Signal indoors only now and then, but outdoors on my way home it was LTE all around the city.

    Did a speed test. Achieved 9Mb/s download and 10Mb/s upload. Strange.

    On the move today so seeing 4g for first time. On Carlisle railway station 19.89 down and 12.3 up, used 36mb for the test. Got 4g up at Preston station.

    No change here, probably Three doesn't have any capacity to spare in dear old London ? ;)

    I can get a 4g signal five metres from the end of my drive. Bummer. In my home, on the other hand, I'm lucky if I even get 'H'. Mind you, that's what home WiFi is for, so I guess it's no biggie. At least 4g is rolling out to more and more places. Now then, when's 5g coming? That really will be spectacular.

    Just got an email about 4G and yet it hasn't happened in my corner. I had a Three SIM and I got 4G with it. I wonder if my local mast is on the brink? I did check online on their site but no problems on that front :(
