Summary

Considering that 4G is all the rage, the knowledge about what it is was severely lacking.

Kishan from Three either didn’t know anything or didn’t want to share his knowledge. Alesha and Natasha’s team effort still couldn’t fill in the 4G info gaps. They had to ask someone else, as did Haleema of O2, but still got it wrong.

Zehra at Carphone Warehouse used a nifty little video to fill in the gaps but wasn’t so sure when asked further questions.

The staff at Phones 4u answered all the questions well and put in a very commendable effort but were beaten by Cash at EE, who knew everything and explained it better.
