This 8-12mbps is avarage speed quaoted by EE's website (google it)

Since DC HSPA+ is max speed 42Mbps and it's around since May 2012 here, in Bulgaria. I easily do minimum 4Mbps when on hspa coverage. A have hit 7.2mbps actual real life speed on my sonyericsson arc s. I have seen Nexus i9250 making 1.5MB/s. Based on this experience I don't believe real life experience with EE's LTE will be 8-12mbps - ofcourse with a proper device.

Is UK a third world country? 8 Gb download data at 8-12 Mbit/s is not enough for streaming movies...! I pay less than £20/pm and get unlimited download data at 80 Mbit/s!

Three UK is already providing 8 to 10 Mbps speed in my area with HSPA+. Dont see any reason to move to EE

I'm with EE, and happy with my 3G right now. For the same price on my £41 contract, I lose 1 of my 2GB of data If I sign up for this LTE. No thanks.
