Bristol has been used as a test bed for 4g for the last few months, but from today you will be able to browse the web in the City using a superfast mobile connection. The first commercial 4g services have been launched by EE (formerly Everything Everywhere) here and in London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Sheffield, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Southampton.

4g coverage in Bristol

You will need a 4g enabled device and a data tariff to be able to take advantage of this, but the advertised speeds of between 8 and 12 megabits per second (Mbps) should create the potential for new mobile products and services.
