EE charges a premium for 4G

23 October 2012

EE announced its 4G pricing today, with the prices broadly set at a premium of around £5 a month to those of 3G services from Orange, T-Mobile, O2 and Vodafone

Perhaps more importantly, the pricing includes unlimited voice and text as standard, which pushes the minimum spend to £36 a month, a substantial uplift from current average contract values of £20-£25

Whether the £5 premium is sustainable or not, EE’s efforts to promote it (and competitor responses) will likely shift the market focus to network quality as opposed to price and handset range, a very healthy development in our view
