4G MOBILE OPERATOR EE has delayed its SIM only plans by two weeks, much to the dismay of potential customers.
The network announced the news via Twitter on Thursday, sheepishly revealing that won't be launching its SIM only plans today as originally announced. Instead, the 12 month plans will be launched in two weeks, although it has not yet announced an updated release date.
Sorry folks – there's been a date change for our SIM-only plans. We expect to bring them in the next 2 weeks. Stay tuned for the new date.

EE is blaming the delay on additional testing, saying, "The launch of SIM only plans (due Nov 9) will be delayed by a few days as a result of our comprehensive testing process over-running slightly.
"We know many customers are anticipating these plans and apologise for this short hold up. However they will be reassured that we are determined to offer the very best service possible."
This news has disappointed those looking to switch to the LTE network, especially those who don't fancy signing up to a lengthy contact and already have a 4G enabled smartphone such as the Apple Iphone 5 or Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE.
Thankfully though, customers are not still waiting for pricing details, as EE announced its SIM only deals back in October. Prices start at £21 a month for 500MB of data, £26 a month for 1GB, £31 a month for 3GB, £36 a month for 5GB and £41 a month for 8GB of monthly data usage.
