It is clear that O2 are in discussions in order to speed up the roll out of its 4G services. This news comes after it was learnt that the only 4G network, on which the iPhone 5 will work, is that of Everything Everywhere, the parent group of Orange and T-Mobile.
02 and Vodafone are both deeply unhappy with the head start that Everything Everywhere have been given.
It is likely that O2 could take legal action. However, if O2, or even Vodafone, were to persure legal action, it would simply slow down Ofcom in making a decision to speed up the timetable for the auction of 4G connectivity.
Three is the only other Uk network to be given the ability to launch 4G services that will work with the iPhone 5.
