EE unveil their 4G pricing - 4G isn't going to be cheap then...
4G is coming! And in the words of Grandmaster Melle Mel, pound for pound, it costs more than gold.
EE (Everything Everywhere) will be launching their 4G service on 30th October, and it isn’t going to be cheap. In spite of saying that they’ve priced the service as ‘a mass market proposition’, the cheapest contract will set you back £36 a month.
For that, you’ll get a mere 500MB of 4G per month, which you could easily rattle through in half an hour, seeing as how 4G is super-fast and that. Once you’ve used up that 500MB, your 4G will be throttled unless you buy some more data. You’ll also get unlimited calls and texts by the way – don’t forget all that stuff.
EE’s top of the range offering will cost £56 a month and will come with a whopping 8GB of data per month – a more realistic usage figure, but fairly expensive when you think about it for more than a few seconds. Is it REALLY going to be worth forking out for?
Alongside 4G, the BBC reports that EE has also launched an on-demand service in which customers can access content directly using 4G but without impacting on their data allowance. We don’t know what that is.
