    Free 4G service upgrade from O2

    Got a text on Friday saying I was being given a free service upgrade to 4G from O2, went live yesterday, speed increase of mobile data is blisteringly fast!!

    Anyone else been moved across? Or has anyone been using 4G for a while? do you seem to use your data quicker?

    Three didn't even need to text me, I got home last night, noticed my icon was now 4G instead of H+
    Quick speedtest showed 55mb/s download speed in the local area.

    Received the text saying I have been upgraded; however we don't have 4G coverage here yet so haven't been able to check or try it out.

    @HaleStorm - you been with 02 for long or was it just that you are based in or around Sheffield and that they have upgraded there 4G network in that area and that is why you have now gotten 4G for free ?

    I currently only pay for 3G as don't get 4G in my area

    @mac_shinobi you can get a package with o2 on contract renewal, 5 for 8GB 4G data (also covers everything below 4G). When 4G goes in your area, you will get it automatically. I think Luton/surrounding areas is quite close on their plans, but as I travel too berkhamstead and london, I get it when I go there

    I only travel between Northampton and my house so not very often I go to area's with 4G coverage unless they are gonna give Northampton area coverage.

    May pay the extra for 4G if

    1.) I get those speeds at home
    2.) The signal improves at my home address
    3.) 4G provides better coverage etc both in doors and out.

    might be worth the 4g upgrade just for the additional data bandwidth per month (you can get 2GB per month for 5 as a bolt on, or you can get 8GB per month for 5 in your contract)

    I've not had the text either but am guessing that is due to not getting 4G coverage in my area for quite a while longer !!

    Sigh !!

    Can't afford anymore money on my mobile contract at the min, I pay nearly 50pcm as it is ( that is mostly due to the handset I have ). When I know I can get 4G coverage where I live and where I work then I will fork out the extra and go from there

    What handset have you got? I got the xperia Z1 ultra (costs more than the iPhone 5s), unlimited minutes, messages, 8GB data, bluetooth mini player and a bluetooth headset for 40 a month...
