Train2Game News Will Everything Everywhere 4G change gaming?

Ofcom has approved an application by the mobile phone operator Everything Everywhere (EE) to use its existing 1800 MHz spectrum to deliver 4G services.1

Following a consultation, Ofcom has concluded that varying EE’s 1800 MHz licences now will deliver significant benefits to consumers, and that there is no material risk that those benefits will be outweighed by a distortion of competition.2 Delaying doing so would therefore be to the detriment of consumers.

The decision takes account of the forthcoming release of additional spectrum in the 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz bands, in an auction process set to begin later this year, which will enable other operators to launch competing 4G services from next year.3

In parallel with this decision, Ofcom has now issued varied licences to EE which authorise LTE services from 11 September 2012. This means that EE can launch LTE services using its 1800 MHz spectrum at any point from that date, although the precise timing of any launch is a commercial decision for Everything Everywhere.

With no handsets available, early adopter prices likely to be HIGH will this help the gaming industry?


Train2Game the best thing I’ve ever done

Train2Game the best thing I’ve ever done

I have been on the Train2game Designer course since March which I must say was the best thing I’ve ever done. Since enrolling I have made some great friends and been involved with some fantastic projects, the biggest of which has been Soul Wars.
Since joining this project I have taken the Lead Designer role which is something I have never done before but is something I feel I have settled into well. I have written the complete background story for the game, designed the games mechanics and have organised a small team of designers from the Train2Game course whom have all followed the ideas I have put across and worked hard with me to get the games design to where it is, so far it has taken us approx 3 months to get this far, but things are all falling into place and the design is almost complete, from High Concept to GDD.
Throughout the design I have been working closely with a student on the Developer course, and although the project is a massive undertaking for a first game (especially considering it is an MMORPG It’s the most enjoyable thing I have ever done and it is extremely satisfying creating a living on-line fantasy game. It is fantastic to see your vision come to life and with a full time job and keeping my wife and four young children happy the course is definitely my biggest ever challenge and achievement.
