Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to O2 arena in London for the O2 4G trial demo. The trial will run until summer 2012, and will give hundreds of consumers, businesses and venue owners a chance to test the latest 4G technology.
The O2 network stretches from Hyde Park to The O2 in Greenwich and has been designed to cover key areas of the capital, including Canary Wharf, Soho, Westminster, South Bank and Kings Cross. More sites are planned for early 2012 to complement the existing coverage area.
The demo at O2 arena didnt work at the beginning as there had a problem with the samsuny 4G dongle but that was easy fixed with a new dongle. There also had Two Playstation 3 running Tekken running via 4G no slowly in lag at all.
Myself I tested 4G on a laptop I got 34.36 Mbps download and 27.51Mbps Upload but I did see other people at the demo getting 50+Mbps.
O2 also had a mini treasure hunt by hiding 4 demo phones of Motorola Razr I helped @Nixemus to find the demo phone then he was given a brand new Motorola Razr phone.
O2 did give a few 4G trial dongles to people who lived in the trial area of London.
