Everything Everywhere, the UK’s first 4G LTE carrier, has announced that come October 15th it will be launching the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Samsung’s new flagship phablet will join the carrier’s other LTE-capable devices. In addition to this news, Samsung’s Galaxy SIII, the HTC One XL, Apple’s iPhone 5, and Huawei’s Ascend P1 LTE are now all available on the carrier beginning today.
While the Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE will have access to EE’s newly introduced 4G LTE network, the new service will not be launching until Tuesday, October 30th. What does that ultimately mean for EE users? Well those who sign up for a new contract will have to do so under Orange or T-Mobile plans and then switch over to Everything Everywhere once its LTE network is launched. The plans run around £41 a month and the phones will cost £19.99.
Today’s full statement from EE CEO Olaf Swantee:
“We are delighted to announce that the official launch of our new customer brand, EE, offering the UK’s first superfast mobile 4G and fibre broadband service, will take place on the 30th October 2012.
“This is a significant milestone for the United Kingdom, and for the people and businesses of our country who will now be able to enjoy the huge advantages of superfast 4G technology for the first time.
“We are very proud to be pioneering, innovating and leading our industry in launching 4G for our nation through our new EE brand.”
