LTE network with lightning fast speed of up to 30Mbps.

And EE thinks 500MB a month is going to be enough based on the "market research"? BWHAHAHAHAHA!! They forgot we're moving toward cloud service. They forgot we now watch more streaming vieo (i.e. iPlayer), more social networking (photos/videos sharing), etc.

I eat around 2GB a month on the bog standard 3G network. And I only pay £13 a month for AYCE data. To meet my requirements for their network, I would have to pay about £50 a month for just 3GB!

Good luck EE, you're going to need it...

Particularly as they are promoting a cloud product to store all your photos and videos for backup, via their clone recovery service

Same here - my 3 one plan is my landline! I use about 200GB a month. I'd have to go bankrupt (again) in order to actually afford that!

I'll stick with 3 at £31 a month and my "oh so pityfull" 12 down 5 up - happy days!

The only thing I find good about the whole deal is the £99 to upgrade phones - handy if your mid contract but still expensive

I'd rather have a slower speed than pay those extortionate prices. Already shifted 6GB of data via phone this month alone due to broadband being off for a week!

My own feeling is that its about adding something over and above 3G and with the pathetic download limits I really cant think of any application I would use on a phone that would be enhanced by 4g with these download limits. All of your current typical smartphone useage will not massively benefit from the increased bandwidth its not going to really help general browsing, facebook, email and downloading the odd app or song especially not when you compare to HSPA/HSPA+. The only real thing I could see 4G being useful for primarily is streaming/downloading video especially HD video. With these download limits its not just not pheasable to do that. I am not a EE customer and this definitely wouldn't tempt me! Throw in that Orange were bad last time I tried them, o2 has superior customer service, and three has all you can eat data!

On O2 LLU for 2 approx 2 years and generally happy with it.

My first ever contract was with Orange, then went to o2, was with them for 7 years until they were more interested in offering broadband than mobile phones and wouldn't offer me a decent deal to stay, so went with vodafone, now with three. I'm thinking of going to Virgin as they run off the back of orange and their sim only plans have all you can eat data.

Three mobile reception at home and work is great, when I'm out and about driving in east anglia, I'm constantly dropping in and out of signal #sadface. I have tried different modems on my galaxy s3, but still lose signal regardless.
