EE Unveils 4G Tariffs – Out October 30th



EE has finally announced the tariff prices for its 4G packages and starting from just £36 per month the network will be hoping to temp users over from other networks to get using the first UK 4G tariffs.


The price plans will offer users unlimited calls and text messages and the £36 plan will come with 500MB of data allowance, when this has been used up the users speed will be slowed down unless they buy a data add on which will again give them access to 4G speeds. The top-end tariff will cost £56 per month and comes with 8GB of data and there will be a number of small business tariffs with 1GB of data for £35 per month.


This may sound like a small amount of data for these prices but with 4G providing superfast downloads and usage expecting to be high it wouldn’t make sense to offer unlimited data straight out of the gate, but users will need to be careful of high data usage when on the plans to avoid bill shock. One thing EE is doing to combat this is offering a free film that users can stream or download each week which won’t affect their data allowance. There will be 700 films to choose from although these are standard resolution which is a shame when handsets such as the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy SIII LTE have such superb screens


Another helpful feature from the network to ensure that you don’t end up with a huge surprise when your bill arrives is to send a text message once you have used 80% of your allowance followed by another message once the data has all gone and an offer of data add-ons to top up.


After such a long and frustrating wait for UK mobile users 4G will finally be available when these new tariffs launch on 30th October.


A home broadband fibre optic service was also confirmed with speeds up to 10 times faster than those currently available and if you take both a mobile and home broadband package you can get a discount of up to £120 on your mobile contract.


So if you fancy trying out 4G these tariffs will be here at the end of the month and if you have signed up for a new contract on Orange or T-Mobile in the last six months you can move over to the EE network and will be given the option of an upgrade to a 4G phone like the latest iPhone or HTC One XL.
