For several months, EE was the only game in town if you wanted to enjoy a high-speed, 4G LTE data network in the UK, but now, Vodafone and O2 have joined in with 4G services of their own, and Three will be doing the same before the end of the year. EE still has the best coverage thanks to its head start, and to help entice those who could be swayed by the competition, it has made its SIM-Only 4G plans a little more attractive.
From the beginning of October until the end of the month, it has dropped the price of each plan by £5, provided you sign-up for 12-months. EE’s 4G plans were never very reasonably priced, but this reduction does see them become considerably better value than before.
The cheapest option is now £16 per month, which gives you the usual unlimited calls and texts, plus 500MB of data to use each month. For 1GB of data you’ll need to find £21 per month, down from £26. However, probably the best value is the 3GB package, as it’s £26 per month instead of £31, but provides three times the amount of data as the £21 per month option. Finally, if you want 5GB per month, you’ll need to spend £31.
All this does depend on you having a 4G capable smartphone, and to live in an area where EE has 4G LTE coverage. The list of compatible phones includes the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, plus Android phones such as the HTC One and One Mini, the Sony Xperia Z and Xperia Z1, plus the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3.
