The New 4th Generation iPad and iPad Mini Will Be 4G in the UK, But Only on EE

By Sam Gibbs on at

Last night we got, not only a new iPad Mini, but also a refreshed fourth generation iPad, both packing UK-compatible 4G. The problem is that it'll only work on EE's 1800MHz network, even after the rest of the UK networks launch their 4G networks, just like the iPhone 5.

The problem is that the new iPads are limited to certain LTE bands -- 1, 3, 5, 13, 25 to be exact -- which means the likes of O2 and Vodafone who'll be competing for the 800MHz and 2.6GHz frequency bands will be fat out of luck.

So, yes, we finally have two 4G-packing iPads, but they're limited to EE's 1800MHz network, which means some serious price plans. Well, either that or sticking to 3G. 4G on a tablet though; now that's cooking with gas. [Apple]
