UK 4G trial for the north of England

Everything Everywhere has launched the UK’s first live 4G mobile broadband trial in the north of England. It’s centred on the village of Threlkeld in Cumbria and will involve up to 50 local residents.

The trial will use existing 1800MHz spectrum from the Orange and T-Mobile mobile networks and will continue until the end of July. Local residents are being invited to register at

Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education, switched on the trial and said: “I’m really delighted to be switching on the first ever deployment of this cutting-edge technology in the North of England. Cumbria has – thanks to the work of local MP Rory Stewart – been at the vanguard of this work. Cumbria has unique needs due to its sparse population and long distances, which 4G LTE will help overcome. Cumbria’s schools and educational opportunities will be revolutionised by this technology. Cumbria’s record number of small businesses will be transformed by this next generation technology. 4G will bring jobs to rural areas and all the benefits of superfast broadband in education and health to its remote communities.”
