Who? A strange and unexpected press release just crossed our desk, which stems from a company in the Netherlands that we’ve not heard of before, Angie Communications. Essentially they plan to “aggressively” rollout a 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network to 3 million premises and make “4.5G” and 5G mobile broadband available to 95% and 90% of the UK respectively by 2021.

A recently published White Paper by the 4G fixed wireless broadband ISP Relish (UK Broadband Ltd.), which offers speeds of up to 50Mbps across parts of central London, has rather shakily predicted that fixed landlines will be “non-existent” in the office and will be “virtually extinct” in the home come 2025.

Let’s get something straight, the next generation of 5G mobile technology probably won’t bring about world peace, fix famine, cure cancer or save that baby from a burning building; at least not literally. It’s a telecoms network upgrade, not superman. But in listening to some of the politicians speak you’d be forgiven for thinking that it could perform miracles.

The Advertising Standards Authority has ruled that Virgin Media misled consumers by claiming that they could get “Unlimited data” (Mobile Broadband) on one of their mobile 3G SIM-Only tariffs, except that customers who exceeded 3.5GB of data in any 30-day period found that their speeds were throttled to just 384Kbps (0.38Mbps).

BT has today taken the wraps off their new 4G consumer mobile phone service (BTMobile), which is underpinned by EE’s national network and will turn the United Kingdom’s largest telecoms operator into a quad-play monster.
