EE UK Launch GBP1 Per Week 4G Pay-As-You-Go Packages

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014 (9:07 am) - Score 2,300

Mobile operator EE has moved to “transform” the United Kingdom’s market for Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) services by launching a new range of 4G (LTE at 1800MHz) compatible packages from just £1 per week, but don’t expect a huge data allowance for that.

The new packs have been split into three categories to represent common customer usage patterns; Everything Packs, Talk and Text Packs and the Data Pack. The Data Pack includes just one option for £1 per week, which gives you 100MB of data, 10 minutes worth of calls and 10 texts. The other categories are as follows.

Everything Packs
ee_everything_pack

Talk and Text Packs
ee_talk_and_text_pack

Crucially this system means that if you get your pack each week or month then every three months you can add more minutes, texts or data at no extra cost. According to EE, 70% of mobile PAYG users spend less than £10 per month, but whether that means customers will actually be attracted by the new offers remains to be seen.

Customers will also get up to £20 off a new phone from any EE shop once they’ve been using the service for at least three months, as well as access to other things like EE Wednesdays (2-4-1 deals on cinema tickets and EE Tickets).

    Three PAYG may be better value for some users.

    The £25 Everything pack with 1000 mins calls unlimited text and 4GB of data seems a bargain to me.

    You could not get a landline + Broadband service + 1000 mins of calls never mind the text message for that money from anyone i know off.

    Plus the added benefit of being PAYG if the service turns out to be rubbish you do not have to even argue with their arguably bad support, just ditch it and move on again unlike a landline with typical 12 month contracts.

      .. and, if you only want the broadband as many do, you can have 25GB for £30/mo.

    2. Avatar No Clue says:

      Not bad at all, especially if you live in an area with poor land line broadband. Use a device that can be tethered and suddenly you have a very reasonable way to get decent speed internet for a fair price.

    3. Avatar Hull_lad says:

      Ofcom’s last Infrastructure report but the average household’s usage around the 30GB mark, and that’s on the rise, so 4GB looks a bit flimsy. You can get TalkTalk’s Simply broadband for £19.45, with unlimited data. It doesn’t cover calls, but again, no-one appears to value fixed calls any more anyway.

      4G still plays second fiddle to fixed for me. That said, these work well for people making their first steps in to Internet usage.

    4. Avatar DTMark says:

      .. ah, but Talk Talk’s broadband would struggle to run at 3Meg down here, with zero meg up (or close as makes no odds).

      EE 4G runs at between 20 and 25 Meg down and 20 Meg up with the antenna in the right place.

      Choice is evolving, though, with Three 3G DC-HSPA, Vodafone 4G and EE 4G we now have a choice of three broadband providers.

      BT Wholesale and Talk Talk are available at the exchange as very basic backup “narrowband” solutions should they be needed.

      So that’s a choice of five ISPs here now. Being able to switch from one ISP to another in about 30 seconds just by swapping the SIM card in the router and no long term commitment are things I’ve got very used to now.

      Talk Talk has an 12 month contract, plus £30 connection charge, and £5 router delivery charge. The “Simply broadband” package by default is only ADSL (which will likely be slower than decent 3G and all most all 4G). Its another £5 per month to boost it to FTTC and then its only 38Mb NOT 76Mb. Another £5 to get unlimited calls also, thats putting it at about £30 per month to get anywhere near the same service.

      Id sooner have the 25GB EE deal for £30. Or the one i mentioned, it will likely be faster than Talk Talk “Simply broadband” and once you factor in all the “extras” to get up and running on Talk Talk for phone and internet per month its not much difference in price…… As mentioned no silly contract to escape should it not suit either. Oh and also the flexibility to change packages depending on if you make more phone calls or do more interneting or texting.

      No contest in my opinion.

  3. Avatar Hull_lad says:

    £4 for 400MB, 40 mins of calls and 40 texts for a month. May suit some low-income households very well.

    1. Avatar dave says:

      slightly higher as that price is for 4 weeks not a month. Probably about £4.25 when you include 2 extra days. Still great value though.

  4. Avatar Shane says:

    When are EE going to introduce bigger data packages. as Hull_lad said most people use around 30GB p/m (which is probably risen with people watching the ice bucket challenge videos sigh!)

    1. Avatar No Clue says:

      If people are daft enough to have their phone set to auto login to facebook, i suspect they have more than just icy water videos to worry about munching data.

      Competition died along with T-Mobile.

      Three committed tethercide not long after.

  5. Avatar Pedrostech says:

    On a two week holiday we had a year or so ago, my household consumed nearly 200GB using a three all you can eat mobile phone SIM!

    1. Avatar No Clue says:

      Could not had been much of a holiday hunched over your phone constantly to do that amount of data in 2 weeks.

    2. Avatar Bob says:

      With the weather in the UK it wouldn’t surprise me.

      You have to leave hell to be in paradise.

    3. Avatar Raindrops says:

      200GB in 2 weeks (or 14 days) is over 14GB a day. No idea how anyone would be doing that on a smart phone or tablet.

      I doubt even a rogue app could rack that up. That is near to 5 hours solid a day with a connection speed of 7Mb. Or a third of the time in a day a typical human is awake!! That must of been one hell of a boring holiday!

  6. Avatar Chaoss says:

    4GB for £25, bloody hell you poor UK folk are getting scammed hard.

    1. Avatar Bob says:

      You can get 25GB for £30.
