Today's date, November 9, is one many people had marked in their 2012 Harry Potter diaries, as EE was s’posed to launch its 4G SIM only plans.
Alas, EE has announced that said launch will be delayed by “a few days”. No wait, now it’s “within the next two weeks”.
According to a statement provided to Coolsmartphone, we have “comprehensive testing” to thank for the EE 4G SIM only delay.
“The launch of our new brand and the UK’s first mobile 4G network has been a great success, with a huge amount of new customers and enquiries already. The network is performing well and, importantly, the roll-out continues to gather pace,” begins the statement from EE, clearly trying to put a positive spin on things.
It continues: “The launch of SIM only plans (due Nov 9) will be delayed by a few days as a result of our comprehensive testing process over-running slightly. We know many customers are anticipating these plans and apologise for this short hold up. However they will be reassured that we are determined to offer the very best service possible.”
A few days ain’t so bad, but the slight rewording in a subsequent statement to SlashGear sounds suspicious.
EE says: “Our 4GEE SIM only plans will now be launching within the next two weeks. We know many customers are keen to get their hands on our SIM only plans and we are looking forward to offering them as soon as our testing process is complete. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
