Everything Everywhere (EE), the company that owns Orange and T-Mobile have today launched the UK’s first 4G mobile service.
A selection of 11 cities: Cardiff, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Sheffield, Glasgow and Southampton with more cities coming online before Christmas.
The company’s mobile tariffs start at £36/month on a 24 month contract, for this you get 500MB of data (which isn’t much). For data hungry users there’s a 8GB tariff which will set you back £56/month. All of their plans come with unlimited texts and calls which is pretty much standard across all networks now.
Unfortunately the UK’s going to have to wait until probably mid-2013 before any other networks launch 4G. Lets hope 5G comes a bit sooner.
