4G in the UK is finally a real, actual thing that you can boast about having when down the pub. And like everything else down the pub, it comes at a price. In other words; EE has just unveiled the UK pricing for its 4G tariffs. So what’s the damage?
EE 4G promises mobile browsing speeds on a par with what you can experience with your home broadband. It’s a huge step up for UK customers, even if you are currently locked to either Orange or T-Mobile – the two companies that make up the EE network.
The price to you? EE 4G starts at £36 per month for a tariff with 500MB of data and unlimited calls and texts, ranging up to £56 per month for a huge 8GB of data allowance. All the tariffs are 24-month jobs. Here’s the full break down:
Worth the money? While the bottom end tariff is essentially the same as any standard smartphone deal, the 500MB data cap may be frustrating if you plan on making the most of your 4G connection.
Likewise, if you’ve never really felt like the speed of your mobile connection is wanting, or if you do the bulk of your heavy browsing at home on a WiFi connection, then you have to seriously ask yourself: is EE’s 4G worth the cash at this stage?
