Always investing We spend the equivalent of £1.5m a day investing in our network in the areas where our customers tell us they need it most.

Going large… and small! Combining big nationwide developments, like LTE with smaller cells in cities to deliver increased capacity.

4G LTE •

In the UK, LTE technology is generally considered to be the standard for our 4G networks

4G is a data only network, it doesn’t carry standard voice

There’s a government auction of 4G frequencies scheduled for January 2013. The spectrum will then be made available in May 2013. We can’t launch until this has happened

Subject to the outcome of the auction, we expect to launch our 4G network soon after the airwaves become available

In the background we’ve been trialling 4G for over a year now and are busy preparing our business for the launch

4G LTE – what does it mean for you? •

In overseas countries, business adoption has been slow as customers wait to see tangible business benefits

We can work together to decide if LTE is right for your business and determine how we can make it work for you

LTE is just one technology amongst many we offer

There’s lots to consider and we’re happy to talk it through with you

The most important thing to consider is what business outcomes you’re looking to achieve, rather than the technology used to deliver these

One grid – two operators • In June we announced our proposed plans to strengthen our network collaboration deal with Vodafone • We have now had approval from the relevant authorities and will start the UK-wide rollout at the end of 2012 • We are pooling our basic network infrastructure to create one national grid of 18,500 sites

• Both companies will be running independent spectrum and competing services • Both companies pledge to close the digital divide between rural and urban areas targeting 98% indoor population coverage across 2G and 3G by 2015 • Agreement will lay the foundations for two competing 4G networks to deliver the capability for a nationwide 4G service faster than could be achieved independently
