I have a press event RM-821_eu_ruro1_276 920 with the 1308 firmware but I cannot get 4G with my 4G EE sim!
I can get 4G by using the ##3282 field test settings but this never seems to last very long and reverts back to 3G. Nokia support have been as much use as a chocolate teapot. Are we still waiting for Nokia to roll out an update or am I missing something?

I also tested this with a friend's Galaxy Note II and the Lumia 920 with developer firmware was a tiny bit faster.
Thanks for the reply, there is some branding in the Rom, in the about section it says EE as carrier and favourites in internet explorer has EE etc. I know it's not much but still annoying!
I did have the EE rom on my phone for a while and the 4G worked fine! The real question is will Nokia update the Sim free firmware?
If Nokia are supplying sim free handsets to the UK then surely these phones should support EE's 4G network out of the box but they don't and Nokia are still rolling out updates for the unbranded rom so why haven't they already included support in the 1308 update?
I phoned Nokia support but I could not get them to understand that the standard version rom on my phone does not support 4g, they just kept saying that the 920 was 4g and if I had a 4g enabled sim in a 4g area I would get 4g but as a lot of us know this isn't true!

Why you do not use some other country's firmware, to get 4G and change language to english ... I have used few different country's firmwares and it works well ... however, you can not update that with NSU, only by NCS ... I can remember I tried english firmware too, but the volume level and missing 4G, made me change to other one - I am using swedish now :) ... and dutch and german firmwares should be OK too ...

The interesting bit is about one minute forty five seconds where he states that Nokia will release updates as networks roll out their 4G networks!
Will they live up to this?

I have a Lumia 920 on Three and I recently flashed it with the generic UK 1304 firmware. Today I found some generic Austrailia/NZ (APAC) 1314 firmware and flashed it again. You can set the country to UK and there is no apparent Australian customisation. The benefit is that you get the latest firmware and can select 4G :-) - not that this is currently any use with Three!
The APAC 1341 firmware is available here: https://mega.co.nz/#!OhhUVRqD!S9qVZS...pD2c0c2m6ID4kA
