During the iPhone 5 launch, Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed that the 4G iPhone 5 will come to the UK courtesy of EE, now known as EE.
Yesterday, EE confirmed its plans to open-up a 4G network imminently in the UK, and Apple has revealed that the iPhone 5 4G will be among the phones available on the network’s next gen package. EE’s new logo was clearly visible during Tim Cook’s presentation, sitting atop the dinky isle we live on.
EE’s 4G roll-out will start in UK cities London, Birmingham, Cardiff and
Bristol before spreading further throughout the country. EE says it
plans to cover 98 per cent of the UK by 2014. Naturally, it won’t come
cheap, though. You can expect to pay at least £40 a month to get
on-board with EE’s 4G plan, and as the iPhone 5 will likely be the most
expensive, most in-demand phone available on the network’s tariff,
you’ll probably have to fork out a good deal more than that too.

The iPhone 5’s battery will provide up to eight hours of browsing over a fast LTE connection, which is the same duration you’ll get using 3G. Apple has managed to offer faster connectivity, without any battery sacrifices. Other features of the iPhone 5 include a 4in screen and super-thin 7.6mm body.
