lol.. All our carriers here in Australia have switched over to 4G and guess who's paying for it ? That's right, we the customer, in the form of more expensive monthly contracts. I have no doubt the same thing will happen in the UK/Europe.

---" As for what drives a customer to stay with their carrier, money is the big consideration of course, followed by network coverage"---

This is huge with me. I don't know how often I come across individuals that are paying for something they don't actually need or use. People here in the states, often put coverage before saving money. When I counsel people on their purchases, one of the things I always ask them is where they go and how frequently. The marketing of the two largest carriers, often gives the impression that no other carrier has sufficient coverage. It does no good to flip money to a carrier where full use of network is never used. Many cheaper carriers will fit their needs just fine.
