UK MOBILE OPERATOR EE has launched a quid-a-week 4G pay as you go option, offering users enough data to check Facebook once or twice.
EE claims that its £1 a week 4G pay as you go offering, which gives users 10 minutes, 10 texts and 100MB data for seven days, will "transform the pay as you go market", whereas in reality it will offer users enough data to check their social networking accounts or listen to a few songs on Spotify.
However, this deal might appeal to those who typically use their device for WiFi browsing, and who rarely send texts or make calls.
EE's £1 aweek deal isn't all it is offering, having reworked its entire 4G pay as you go tariffs lineup.
For £10 a month, users can get either 250 minutes and unlimited texts, or 150 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data, while handing over £15 every 30 days will bump this to either 750 minutes and unlimited texts or 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 2GB of data. EE's most expensive £25 offering gives 4G customers 1,000 minutes, unlimited texts and 4GB of data each month.
EE is looking to sweeten the deal too, and has promised that those who top-up for three consecutive months will get some freebies. Those on the dirt-cheap £1 option can get an additional 25MB data, 10 minutes and 25 texts, while those on the £15 offering will get an extra 250MB data, 50 minutes and 250 texts.
EE's new pay as you go options are available to customers now, and will be available to the 70 percent of UK residents covered by its 4G network. µ
