    Uk has same type of 4g LTE network as Australia which is a different band width to USA and is not directly supported with the iPad 3 however in saying that the performance at 3G on the 4 g network is impressive when comparing. a iPad 2 on 3G
    From what I can understand it is the design of the antennas in the iPad 3 that makes it faster

    One should understand that LTE 4g may only have a small range in cities so the iPad will drop down to 3 g outside of the 4g transmission iIn Australia while traveling I found if you are out side 4k of a major city forget it. In some cases less than 2 k I tested the LTE network with a iPhone 5 which is. a special model for our region I suspect the latest 4 g iPad and the mini just released will be a special model like the iPhone 5

    There are 3 versions of the iPhone 5 world wide
    Personally I would. not stress to much as it could take years before the coverage is beneficial to you.

    The real problem is not Apple it is the fact that there is no single standard LTE 4G network across the world so if you travel a lot regardless what you have it may drop down to 3G out side of your country
    Hope that helps

    Supposedly the new iPad4 just announced yesterday will work for you. May be worth asking Apple about.

    This shows what world LTE networks the the 4th gen iPad will support, at least for now.

    Apple - iPad - View countries with supported LTE networks.

    In a weird sort of flip-flop, it looks like the Verizon version of the 4th gen iPad is going to be a better world tablet than the AT&T model.

    The iPad 1 advantage was AT&T (because only they had it). With the iPad 2 only AT&T had GSM (used in most of the world outside the U.S.). The 3rd gen iPad is more or less equal between carriers because both have GSM (Verizon's in addition to CDMA).
