EE announces 4G price plans – launching on October 30th

EE, the UK’s first 4G network, has officially unveiled pricing details for tariffs, as well as upfront costs for the initial batch of handsets that’ll take advantage of the super-fast mobile standard.

The carrier will offer a range of two-year contracts with unlimited calls and texts as standard. The cheapest plan starts from £36 a month, which gets you 500MB of mobile internet allowance, followed by £41, £46, £51 and £56 per month for 1GB, 3GB, 5GB and 8GB of data respectively.

A number of smartphones will be available for the imminent rollout. The recently launched iPhone 5 (16GB) and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will set you back £179.99 on the £36 plan. The HTC One XL and the Samsung Galaxy S3, meanwhile, will cost £149.99 each on the same tariff, and the Huawei Ascend P1 just £19.99 (free on other contracts).

EE is due to launch its 4G service across the UK on Tuesday October 30th, starting with four major UK cities: London, Birmingham, Cardiff and Bristol. 12 more cities will be added by the year’s end, including Manchester, Edinburgh and Belfast – covering a population of over 20 million people.

Ernest Doku, telecoms expert at, said: “The launch of 4G isn’t quite in the same league as man landing on the moon, but it is a step change for the mobile market. It is a hugely ambitious rollout for EE, but luckily for consumers the price for the service isn’t quite so ambitious.

“With competitive prices, inherited value-adds such as Orange’s hugely popular 2-4-1 cinema tickets and superfast mobile on the go, smartphone fans are ripe for winning over to 4G.”
