EE has announced plans to double its 4G LTE network speeds in ten U.K. cities by the summer. The move will boost headline speeds to 80Mbps, and increase the average speed to 20Mbps for both new and existing subscribers.

HTC has been forced to delay the rollout of its promising new HTC One. An executive for the company has confirmed that it now has difficulty securing certain components from its suppliers as it is no longer considered a “tier-one” customer.
Following its much-anticipated unveiling on Tuesday, the HTC One is now available to pre-order in the U.K. from the official HTC Store and from a number of third-party providers. The SIM-free model is priced at £519.99 (approx. $803) with 32GB of internal storage, but the handset can be obtained for free on two-year contracts for £36 (approx. $56) per month.
It’s available in black and silver, but there’s no sign of the red model that HTC has been advertising on its website.
