EE, the United Kingdom's first 4G network, has announced some improvements to its service that are sure to please early adopters. The company is increasing its mobile data caps "by around 60%" for all 4G users, while keeping the price of its plans the same.
Those who signed up to a 2GB per month plan now get 3GB of data, while those who previously got 3GB can now enjoy up to 5GB. Those on the 5GB of plan have had their data allowance increased to 8GB. All customers will have their plans upgraded automatically, EE says, with no increase to their monthly fee.
In addition to this, EE has announced a range of new SIM-only mobile broadband plans for those who want 4G speeds on their tablets and other devices. The one-month plan costs £15.99 (approx. $26) for 5GB of data, and EE is offering the first month free for customers who sign up before December 23.
If you're buying a 4G dongle or mobile Wi-Fi device from EE, you can choose from a range of 30-day plans, and 18- and 24-month plans, starting at £12.99 (approx. $21) per month for 1GB of data.
"These updates underline our commitment to offering customers the best value and choice from our plans," said Pippa Dunn, EE's Chief Marketing Officer.
"We recognise Superfast 4GEE opens up a range of possibilities for our customers from browsing to gaming to HD movie streaming so it's right that we increase the breadth of our plans to meet everyone's needs. And customers signing up to our £15.99 5GB SIM only plan get great value whether they're on 4G or 3G, and they will receive their first month free."
