A lot of you may have heard about an upcoming 4G network which is a joint venture between Orange and T-Mobile. Known as Everything Everywhere(EE), the 4G network has gone live in 11 cities including London, Cardiff and Bristol to name a few. Five mroe cities will get the EE treatment before Christmas this year with the majority of the UK to join before the end of 2014.
The different contracts on offer give you both unlimited calls and text messages. However, the differentiator is the amount of data that you can consume over 4G. 500MB of data will cost you £46 for a one-year contract, £36 for a two-year contract. The highest of the range of contracts available will give you 8GB of data which will set you back £56 a month for a two-year contract or £66 for a one-year contract.
Personally, I think that this is very expensive especially for a one-year contract with 500MB of data for one month. With those 4G speeds I personally think that anyone will be able to run through their allowance of data within the month and run into overage charges. That being said, this technology is in it’s early days here in the UK and so those prices might go down with time.
