UK to get 4G networks by end of 2012 or early 2013.

Now Britain people will enjoy the much more speed on their smartphones.

Ofcom's chief executive Ed Richards has announced timetable at the FT World Telecoms Conference, which will pave the way for next-generation mobile services in the UK.

The auctioning of 4G spectrum will be done in the first half of 2012, according to Mr Richards. Which means the spectrum will become available from late 2012 or early 2013.

Actually the auction was originally scheduled for 2009 but was delayed because of legal action by mobile firms.

He warned that "further litigation against the government or regulator will jeopardise this timetable".

Despite the demand for new networks, Mr Howett predicts the spectrum will sell for a lot less than its 3G equivalent which raised £22bn for the Treasury when it was sold in 2000.
