EE announces cheaper 4GEE tariffs

EE has announced that it will be providing consumers with a new range of entry-level 4G tariffs as a special promotion.

From January 31 to March 31, EE will be offering a 24 month tariff providing unlimited texts and calls and 500MB of data for £31 per month. Customers will also be able to choose from a range of 4G handsets for a special one-off price, including the Nokia Lumia 820 or the HTC One SV LTE for an upfront £29.99 fee.

EE seem to be responding to public opinion that its 4G tariffs were far too pricey for the average smartphone user.

The 4G network will also be introducing a new tariff offering 20GB of mobile data for its ‘super-user’ customers. The tariff will offer unlimited UK calls and texts for £46 per month on a SIM-only 12 month contract, or with a new 4G handset for £61 per month for 24 months. Both of these options are only available to customers who sign-up before February 28 though.

“It’s our aim to offer consumers the most comprehensive range of 4GEE price plans,” said Pippa Dunn, Chief Marketing Officer at EE. “With these new options we’re looking to not only make 4G smartphones even more accessible, but offer even greater value for the small number of super-users out there – ensuring EE really does offer a package that’s tailored for all customers’ 4G needs.”

The news of EE’s new tariffs follows Phones 4U’s announcement that it will be launching its own mobile network, LIFE mobile. It seems that EE is making an early bid to snag new customers before other networks begin to offer their own 4G services.

Do you think EE’s new cheaper tariffs are better value for money, or is the 500MB data allowance still to small? Give us your opinions on our Facebook and Twitter pages, or via the comments section below.

Do they just not have enough capacity to cope with loads of people using LTE? Their pricing and data limits seem designed to make sure LTE is hardly used!

I can't wait till there's competition.

4G is pointless unless it's unlimited. It's meant for heavy data consumption!

If EE could offer an unlimited data allowance then no one would have home broadband because their phone, tablets and laptops would all be running on the unlimited internet. Frankly, if you use more than 20GB of data a month on your mobile you need to get a life (likewise with unlimited calls and texts). For those who think that Vodafone and O2 will offer unlimited bundles are deluded, these companies want to make money at the end of the day!

I have moved to EE from Orange and could not be happier (opted for the £41 plan) I use my internet daily and I a yet to reach my 1GB allowance. If you need more just pay for more! It makes sense since this is a next generation service. When everyone is complaining about the completion's 4G coverage I will be securely pat of both the biggest 3G and 4G network.
