Is Innovation outpacing Mobile Infrastructure?

Every time I hear rumours and then see the delivery of new mobile products I am impressed how far we have come over the last few years.  Smartphones are becoming more and more feature rich and the proliferation of tablets is becoming the norm.  However I do get frustrated with the networks that support these, has product Innovation surpassed the infrastructure they rely upon?

I live in London and even within the M25 have trouble getting a 3G or GPS connection some times, so cannot imagine how rural areas of the UK cope. 

Will the growing trend of mobile devices accelerate LTE rollout (4G) or like Europe will more and more cities begin to offer free Wi-Fi?  although existing Wi-Fi networks are not immune as the iPad on average uses 400% more Wi-Fi than any of device so in time these will need to be upgraded too.
