4G or 4GEE is now available!


[link to this post]
 
To day is the launch day for EE 4G or as they are calling it 4GEE if you can afford it. With unlimited calls and texts, it costs £36 for 500MB of data each month, rising to £41 for 1GB, £46 for 3GB, £51 for 5GB and £56 for 8GB with 24 months contract.

One guy on the radio this morning said with 4G he has data speeds up to 18 Mbps in London.

Maybe when all the businesses are using 4G the prices will come down. At present there’s a limited choice in 4G LTE phones.

Cool, maybe you could ask them why they have people streaming TV and movies in their Kevin Bacon ad while claiming people should use Wifi which kinda defeats the point of spending for 3G and ensuring the tariffs force people to subsidise unlimited talk / text by charging through the nose for data.

I'm not surprised you're getting good speeds, Nothing Nowhere seem keen to keep the bandwidth usage to a minimum.
