Everything Everywhere getting early LTE in the UK, but will they get an LTE iPhone to go with it?

While the UK is way ahead when it comes to angry chefs yelling at people on TV, so far their LTE deployment has been anything but speedy. However, Everything Everywhere, the company formed by the merger of Orange and T-Mobile, has been granted a license by Ofcom to start deploying LTE on 1800MHz -- this September. If that time frame sounds familiar, it's because it's also the rumored time frame for the iPhone 5 announcement. Coincidental? Maybe, but it would put Everything Everywhere well ahead of rivals O2 and Vodafone, who are still waiting on an oft-delayed spectrum auction before they can even begin their LTE rollouts.

Netflix for iPhone, iPad goes live in the UK

Netflix is now available in the UK, and that means it's now available for iPhone and iPad in the UK App Store (and Android too). One month of service will run you £5.99 which isn't too far off the US or Canadian prices.

Content is... content. It sounds like it's okay at launch but stuff will come, stuff will go, so if you see something you like, start watching it now.
