iPhone 5 is only compatible with the UK carrier EE and Three (Oct 2013). For Vodafone, o2 etc - the iPhone 5 will not support 4G
This is down to the spectrums owned by each of the providers - iPhone 5 is capable of 1800mhz in UK

EE is the former Everything Everywhere which is combined of Orange and T-Mobile - their 4G service went live in the UK yesterday in 11 major cities
Correct. I was told by Vodafone call centre that iPhone 5 will work with Vodafone 4G when its available - that was a lie

Interesting that Vodafone seems to know something about Apple's development lifecycle that supply chain do not know
Apple officially said that 800mhz was an untested band and to quote Apple, was not mature enough to included the coverage.
I'm confident that Apple will bring an updated ip5 out at some time, I would also think that Vodafone do not really know when this will be any more than you or I.
