We're not going to be living the superfast 4G dream as soon as our American cousins, but at least we're making a little bit of progress in the UK.

Everything Everywhere and BT have kicked off their first joint live trial of LTE in that hot-bed of technological innovation, Cornwall. A common testing ground for new wireless technologies, approximately 200 lucky Cornish trail-blazers are living the dream as of today with a 50:50 split between mobile and fixed-wireless broadband units. While we in the cities might be craving 4G speeds on our phones, LTE could help reach those without fixed-line broadband so even the country bumpkins can get their Call of Duty-on and get owned by the legions of militant 13-year olds.
