UK MOBILE OPERATOR EE introduced a 20GB 4G package today for what it called "super users," which it will offer on a discounted rate through the end of February.
The new price plan, which sees EE improving on its previous highest package of 8GB of data, is available from today, and is aimed at the network's small number of "super users". These are people who use more than 8GB of data each month, EE said, although it added that these account for less than one percent of its user base.
Although EE's 8GB package was priced at £56 a month, it has managed to drop our jaws with the news that the plan will be available for £46 a month if you sign up before the end of February. However, it's worth noting that this is a SIM only plan, so you'll have to fork out for a 4G handset too.
Alternatively, you can get the handset included from £61 a month on a 24-month contract, or for £76 a month once EE's discount ends. Ouch.
As well as introducing its 20GB package, EE has also revealed that it is making it cheaper to get a 4G contract, obviously having listened to our moaning. The firm tells us that the HTC One SV and Nokia Lumia 820 handsets will be available on its new, affordable £31 tariff. This comes with 500MB of monthly data and a £29 upfront cost for the phone.
Pippa Dunn, chief marketing officer at EE, said, "It's our aim to offer consumers the most comprehensive range of 4GEE price plans.
"With these new options we're looking to not only make 4G smartphones even more accessible, but offer even greater value for the small number of super-users out there - ensuring EE really does offer a package that's tailored for all customers 4G needs."
EE also announced a new international plan that means customers on 24 month contracts will be able to pay a fiver for unlimited calls and texts abroad. µ
