EE offers up 4G+

31 October 2014

ee EE have launched its next generation 4G+ in London.

They claim this G is better than all the other Gs, as it offers download speeds of up to 150MBps and averages of 90Mbps – five times faster than the average UK broadband connection.

However - as is always the way with EE - there's a caveat: availability is quite limited in the UK, so it's literally running before it can walk.

First up you will need a 4G+ compatible smartphone (EE only offers two: Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4). Whereas non-EE smartphones that are 4G+ compatible include Motorola’s Nexus 6, Huawei’s Ascend Mate 7 and LG’s G3.

And when they say London, they don't mean Lambeth or Crouch End or White City, they mean Shoreditch, Old Street, Westminster and Kensington.

They hope this will be expanded to the whole of Greater London by June 2015 and then on to Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.

The new 4G+ connection brings the UK up to speed with the world’s most connected countries – including South Korea, Japan and the US – and places it ahead of most other European countries.

So, swings and roundabouts.

    The new 4G+ connection brings the UK up to speed with the world’s most connected countries. Utter wank. A small area in London is NOT the UK. As Bill has stated, I'm still waiting on normal 4G and, in a lot of cases, even 3G.

    Brilliant, so now EE customers can use up their 1GB allowances even faster and then pay even more to the shysters for "over allowance" data.
