EE hints that UK users will finally get 4G Apple iPad

Newly rebranded network EE has hinted that it will support the new Apple iPad on its 4G network.

At an event in London, EE, formerly Everything Everywhere, announced that it will launch the UK's first 4G network from today. This network will offer the fastest internet speeds available in the UK, EE boasted, and will operate alongside Orange's and T-Mobile's 3G networks.

The network also showed a short film that boasted about how fast the 4G network will be, and V3 caught a glimpse of a customer using an Apple iPad.

Although EE was unable to confirm the detail, this suggests that the network will soon be offering a 4G model of the Apple tablet. Following the new iPad launch in March, Apple released the 4G+Wi-Fi model in the UK, but found itself in trouble with the Advertising Standards Agency, given the UK's lack of LTE connectivity.

EE also hinted that it will be offering the iPhone 5 on its 4G network following the handset's expected launch in San Francisco tomorrow. EE said its network would support 4G devices from HTC, Huawei, Nokia and Samsung, adding suggestively that it will be announcing new products "very soon".

EE's 4G LTE network will start rolling out in four cities from today, with a further 12 cities set to be connected by Christmas. EE claims that it will have 70 percent of the UK connected by 2013 and 98 percent by 2014.
