UK’s first pay as you go 4G plan

EE was the first carrier to offer 4G deals in the UK, but has since been joined by some pretty fierce competition. The shared goal is to deliver a superfast network to the most far-flung areas of Britain, but it also needs to be affordable and applicable to everyone.

Olaf Swantee, EE CEO said: “This month we are launching new plans for light users, super users, regular users, data sharers and Britain’s mobile workforce up and down the country.”

On that launch we’re set to see the UK’s first 4G pay as you go payment plan, which will of course mean a larger initial pay out for 4G-ready handsets. We will also see new entry level plans for LTE customers and massive data plans for those that have wedge to burn.

But how much will this cost?

EE have said that customers will be able to pick up PAYG 4G deals on all fifteen handsets available on the pay monthly tariffs, although be aware that some of the high end models will come with  a hefty price tag attached.

We’re still unsure of prices on all handsets, but EE has confirmed that the upcoming Alcatel One Touch Idol S will be £129.99. Data starts from £3 for 100MB for 30 days, while 10GB will set you back £30 and consumers who buy bundles of 2GB or greater will get access to faster speeds. And, for the chatty 100 minutes will be £3 or £10 for 500 minutes.

Monthly payment plans start from £26.99 for unlimited calls, texts and 4GB of data. For the super users out there, the most expensive plan is £74.99 per month, for 50GB of data, plus unlimited calls and texts.
