Apple has announced the iPhone 5 in San Francisco today and, as we revealed last week, confirmed that the new iPhone 5 would be available with 4G LTE on the EE network. 

EE launched the UK's first LTE network in London yesterday, 11 September, initially announcing several devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One XL.

The UK's 4G rollout is under way now, with 16 cities benefiting from coverage by the end of December 2012, according to EE, which was formed as a new brand from the Everything Everywhere co-operation of Orange and T-Mobile.

During the press launch for EE, the company strongly hinted that the iPhone 5 would be coming to its network, now confirmed by Apple.

The iPhone 5 won't be an EE exclusive however, as it's rolling out on other networks with support for other data connections already in place on the likes of Vodafone and O2.
