Orange and T-Mobile’s tag team, Everything Everywhere (or ‘EE’ for short), hasn’t exactly made the best of its head start in UK 4G. All told, it’s probably fair to say it’s a super-expensive mess.
On the plus side(ish), EE has listened to its customers, and will soon offer a £31PM plan, while the maximum data option has been cranked to 20GB - the latter costing a whopping £61PM on contract.
The £31PM plan will run as a “special promotion” (a fiver off, essentially) between January 31 and March 31, and applies to a 24-month contract with the usual unlimited texts and calls, and 500MB of data.
While the press release mentions only the HTC One SV LTE and Nokia Lumia 820, a quick call to the EE press office confirms you’ll be able to grab any of EE’s 4G range at £31PM, with the upfront cost varying accordingly.
There’s also mention of a £41PM 12-month plan, though presumably that’ll see the upfront cost increase a fair whack.
EE has also bowed to the demands of “fewer than 1% of 4G customers” that feel 8GB isn’t enough to last a full month, with a monstrous 20GB offering. As of now, you can go SIM only at £46PM over 12 months (£552), or grab a contract at £61PM on a 24-month plan (£1,464). Wow.
