UK MOBILE OPERATOR EE has finally lifted the lid on its 4G pricing ahead of the network's rollout on 30 October.
EE has told us that its 4G network is typically five times faster than 3G, and as expected, it's not cheap.
500MB of data on EE's 4G LTE network will cost you £36 a month, although that won't get you much time on the web. A much more reasonable 8GB of data isn't priced all that reasonably though, as customers will have to sign up to a £56 two year contract. Ouch.
Thankfully though, EE has confirmed that tethering will be included as part of its price plans, and has said it will alert customers when they are reaching their data allowance limit.
Things are looking better for business customers too, as EE has revealed that plans including unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 1GB of monthly data will start from £35 per month. EE's Fibre Broadband prices aren't too bad either, with plans starting from £15 a month including a £5 per month saving on the network's 4G tariffs.
EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: "We're proud to be leading the way and pioneering the roll out of 4G in the UK. With our new brand and unique 4G and Fibre services, we will deliver consumers and businesses across the country next-generation services and a superior level of support.
"Our new plans have been developed to offer our customers everything they have been asking for - superfast performance, choice and value - as well as a fresh approach to pricing and customer service that offers accessibility, flexibility and guidance every step of the way."
As well as lifting the lid on its pricing, EE has unveiled an all new EE Film service. In addition to two-for-one cinema ticketing, best known as Orange Wednesdays, the operator will offer a Film Store, the ability to watch films across multiple devices using Pause & Play and the added bonus of being able to download or stream a film each week without affecting your data allowance - definitely a good thing considering those 4G price plans.
EE's 4G price plans will go into effect in the UK on 30 October, and will be available with phones including the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, Iphone 5 and HTC One XL. µ
