Three’s 4G deals will not be as pricey as EE’sFebruary 5 | Posted by geoff | Network News Tags: 4G, EE, EE4G, EE4G network, LTE, Three, Three 4G
Three will be launching its 4G services in the second half of 2013. It will be using the 1800MHz airwaves it purchased from EE.
Three’s 4G network will not require you to switch SIM cards or upgrade your current deal, but you will have to switch to a 4G-enabled handset. If you already own a 4G handset such as the iPhone 5, you won’t have to switch phones either. Other 4G handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE and the Blackberry Z10 will be offered by Three soon after their 4G launch.
EE was criticised for making its 4G deals not at all affordable. The cheapest deal will cost you £36 per month. This only gets you 500MB of data, which you are likely to blow by in a matter of minutes considering how fast 4G is.
Three’s cheapest SIM-only deal, on the other hand, will cost you a paltry £6.90 a month. This too will give you 500MB of data. Of course, you will have to pay for the phone at full price, but this is a much cheaper option than going for EE’s cheapest deal.
Three’s One Plan offers unlimited data for £12.90 a month. Furthermore, this is a one-year contract, unlike the majority of EE’s deals that require you to sign up for a two-year contract.
