EE announces early launch of 4G services by the end of 2012

September 2012

commercial news

Everything Everywhere Limited (the owner of both T-Mobile and Orange mobile brands), now known as EE, confirmed on 11 September 2012 that they will launch their 4G mobile service across 16 cities by the end of 2012, with 98% population coverage by 2014.

The 16 cities include London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, Belfast, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Sheffield and Southampton.  This follows Ofcom's approval on 21 August to allow them to launch their 4G service utilising their existing radio spectrum, ahead of the 4G licence auction for the rest of the mobile phone operators in early 2013.
 
But what are the advantages to this new service? 4G will bring about reliable network connection, but with the huge amount of data transfer, network upgrading will be required.  Whilst a lot of work has already been completed by the Operators for the 16 named cities, upgrade work will continue in these areas over the coming months, with the 4G roll-out continuing generally across the UK for the next two years.
 
So what should Landlords be doing?  Those landlords with T-Mobile (Everything Everywhere), Orange or even Arqiva masts (with T-Mobile or Orange sharing) should keep a close eye on the equipment levels already installed or are being installed on their masts, or within the compound.
 
Where landlords are unsure of the rights allowed within the existing lease, Fisher German are able to identify where equipment installed is in excess of equipment rights as permitted within the lease agreement, which could lead to increased rents and/or premium payments where the operator is in breach.
 
Landlords also continue to be approached by the telecom operators to assign their existing Orange leases into the name of Everything Everywhere Limited, but depending on the lease terms there may be potential to negotiate rental increases and/or better lease terms in return for landlord consent.
 
For further advice on this matter or any other mobile phone mast issues, please contact Eve Angell or Chris Hicks on 01858 410200.
