Although we first covered this earlier this year (here), we thought it worth restating ‘s position in respect of their 4G rollout plans and the impact on their tariffs. The plans are quite simple; coverage to start in London, Birmingham and Manchester starting some point in December, with more cities during 2014. The impact on tariffs is even easier; there isn’t any!
have stated that existing users will get access to 4G (assuming you have a 4G phone compatible with ‘s LTE frequencies), and will continue to benefit from All You Can Eat data without any additional charges or payments. It is possible that your phone will need a minor software update to enable 4G, although many manufacturers are already rolling this update out in preparation, however, existing SIMs will work, and there will be no need to sign a new contract.
This compares very well to Three’s competitors; eg with EE and, you need to move to a 4G tariff, and all the other networks seem to be charging a premium for 4G data.
