There’s been lots and lots of commotion around EE’s inclusive data on their newly launched 4G network.
Complaints have come in thick and fast stating that there is not enough data or that the price is too high. Today EE have announced that they are launching a new “Super-User” tariff aimed at those that use vast amounts of data on a monthly basis.
There’ll be a £31 per month plan which launches on January 31st. If you enter into this particular 24-month arrangement you’ll get the usual unlimited calls and texts plus you get 500MB of data included per month. You then get a range of phones to choose from which start at £29.99, like the Lumia 820 or HTC One SV LTE.
The big news, though, is the introduction of the 20GB plan. EE state that …
After listening to customers, EE will be launching a new plan offering 20GB of mobile data. The plan addresses a small number of ‘super-users’ (currently fewer than 1% of 4G customers), who have shown a desire to use more than the 8G of mobile data that is currently available on EE’s largest 4GEE plan.
There’s a new special 12 month SIM-only plan available which costs £46 per month for the full length of the plan. You need to sign-up quickly though as this deal is only available until February 28th, but it gets you a full 20GB of data to use monthly and unlimited calls and texts. If you sign up after February 28th this goes up to £61 per month.
Notch the monthly cost up to £61 per month, if you sign a 24 month contract, you’ll receive one of the latest 4G handsets too. Again, you’ll need to sign-up before February 28th. If you’re too late and sign up after, then kiss goodbye to £76 per month.
EE are also rolling out a new 8GB SIM-only 12-month plan for £41 per month.
Will you upgrade or is the cost just too high? Let us know in the comments below…..
