EE has announced changes to its 4G mobile broadband packages that will offer customers increased data allowances across all tiers, including some of the biggest monthly allowances on the market in the UK.
The plans all require customers to have a 4GEE Home Router, which the company introduced earlier this year and is effectively a small 4G router with a built-in antenna that distributes its signal around a consumer's home via Wi-Fi.
Prices for the service start at £35 per month, for which customers will receive a monthly data allowance of 50GB.
From there, options include a 100GB offering priced at £45 per month, £60 per month for 200GB of data usage and, £80 for 300GB of downloads. At the top end, users can enjoy a massive 500GB of data for £100.
All of these prices are based around an 18-month contract. However, users also have the option to pay £100 upfront to avoid this and instead have a 30-day rolling contract.
The offerings are likely to be particularly useful for people who live in rural areas that are poorly served by traditional wired broadband, but are able to secure a strong 4G mobile signal.
In such cases, 4G mobile broadband can offer much faster, more reliable speeds that traditional connections and, while it is more expensive than copper wire, it remains much more affordable than alternatives such as satellite broadband where 4G is available.
