BT Finally Unveils New 4G Mobile Plans and WiFi Service.. for UK Businesses

Monday, August 4th, 2014 (11:31 am) - Score 1,506

Anybody who has been wondering how BT would make use of their new 4G mobile spectrum and EE MVNO deal now has a partial answer. The UK telecoms giant has today launched its new 4G (LTE) based mobile plans, which also include unlimited wifiat no extra cost“. But residential consumers will have to wait a little longer.

As expected the new BT Business Mobile product runs over the operators national mobile service, which is supported by their Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) agreement with EE (here), although existing subscribers will need to re-sign in order to benefit from the new service.

The new plans range from single user (Solo) to shared bundles, data-only plans and a new Mobile Flex plan that claims to offer “tailored pricing for larger customers“. Customers also have the option to select a SIM only plan or can choose from a range of handsets. So what can you actually get?

The solo plans start at £17.50 +vat per month for 500MB data, 300 calls/texts and you can select from a range of budget handsets, while the top deal brings 10GB of data and unlimited texts/calls from £45 with a high-end handset. The SIM-Only plans are similar but you get more for your money, albeit minus the handset, with £17.50 giving 500 texts/calls and 1GB of data etc.

All of these include unlimited wifi and the Mobile Extra upgrades allow you to add more of what you want, such as the 30-day roaming Extra for roaming in both Europe and the rest of the world.

Graham Sutherland, CEO of BT Business, said:

Our research shows that 24% of employees now work regularly out of the office. As part of our strategy to offer a portfolio that provides value for money and meets the changing needs of businesses, we’ve designed our new mobile plans to cater for this. Our new plans give customers the connectivity they need to help them stay productive when out and about, along with the flexibility to choose a plan that suits their way of working.”

It’s an interesting set of packages but most of our readers will of course be more interested in their consumer 4G services, which sadly won’t be launched for a few months.

    Interesting. Just a few questions: Does it really read 500MB? This monthly allowance could be used up in a few minutes. Also, where is the unlimited WiFi coming from?

      I assume it’ll be BT Wifi/Openzone. Be interesting to see what they do with the femtocells with the next Homehub.

    Are BT about to find out what it’s like to try to compete in a vertical monopoly where the owner of the infrastructure is also the primary retail provider 😉

      I suppose the only real difference will be for BT broadband customers who can get bundle discounts.

    Did they not already learn with BT Cellnet and my.genie which they had back in the day…. Obviously not.
