EE users in London?

Has anyone been using EE's 4G in London? What are speeds like? Worth the price?

I just joined orange via dialaphone and topcashback. I pay £36 a month. Its an 18 month contract with an Xperia Z, I have £144 cashback via Dialaphone and £100 cashback via topcashback. The phone was free. I then called orange today and said about 4G, they said that they can migrate me to EE for free. My new sim is on the way and it will give me unlimited texts, unlimited calls and 750mb of data. Most of my usage is on wifi anyway. Although I cant confirm speeds. £36 a month for this before including all the cashback is a great deal.

Probably a bad time to take out an EE contract at list prices with the other operators on the cusp of launching 4G. Prices certainly aren't about to go up.

maybe good advice there, but at the equivalent of

18 months * £36 = £648
- £100 cashback (topcashback)
- £144 cashback (Dial A Phone)
= Leaves a total of £244 to pay for the 18 months
Per month this equates to around £22 per month roughly with a free Xperia Z.

Also, this give you unlimited access to Deezer as well, so for free it's a good music service which you can use offline too.

750mb of data is pathetic for 4G. If you use that little mobile data each month, you have no need to use 4G, HSPA will be perfectly adequate for your needs (unless you blow your entire 750mb on a few HD video clips, which would be very odd to say the least).

I use 4G in Coventry and I rarely go over 500Mb.
I use my data almost exactly as I did when I was using 3G. Just because I'm on 4G doesn't mean I'm going to go crazy and start downloading just for the sake of it.

Why bother with 4G then? You don't need super speedy internet to check Facebook. It's like paying for a 100mb broadband connection to check your emails, yes it'll do it just fine, but you're wasting your money because a 10mb connection would be perfectly adequate.

Haha :p

It's the people like the guy above who keep EE's rip off 4G service in business. Nothing which totals less than 500mb of data per month (16.67mb per day) requires, or most likely would even be noticeably improved by, using 4G instead of 3G. Large downloads and HD video streaming are about the only things which are noticeably improved by using 4G instead of 3G.

I probably should have been more clearer.
I don't use my data allowance when I'm at home as I use wi-fi. Thats what I meant when I said "I use my data almost exactly as I did when I was using 3G".
If anything I have my data setting switched to on more often when I'm out and about as I've found it more reliable than T-mobiles 3G signal. Not sure why that is, but it is.
I've always been conscious of the data allowance since I was on o2 with only 100Mb and have been careful to not exceed that. I'm just trying to get out of that mindset and embrace mobile Internet again.
