    ....and heres why i had, and still have, no interest in moving to EE for 4G LTE. It was never going to be unlimited was it? ;)

    But seriously! £36 a month for 2 years only gets you 500Mb!?!? :lol:

    I haven't got the first feintest clue what you're on about :confused: :lol:

    I don't use my phone for online stuff, it's too titchy, and besides, when I step outside front door, I like to feel detached from tinternet.

    Still, from what I can sus from above, prices seem like a lot of loot for not very much :eek:

    Crikey! That is just like... um... the way they've done it in the U.S.


    :cry:


    Just for comparison: 4G data is unlimited here in Finland, and fees range from €20/month for a 50 Mb/sec subscription to €40/month for a "full speed" 100 Mb/sec subscription.

    Sounds like you get a very good Deal there Urmas - unlimited 4G data for €20 is a bargain!

    It seems silly to have a 500MB cap - especially at £36/month. It makes 4G pointless for the time being, as 3G is much better value and still plenty fast for most mobile needs.

    ... not to mention that it will take time EVERYWHERE to get 4G infrastructure up and running COUNTRY WIDE.

    But still... latencies are much lower, and upload speeds...

    Here is a speed test from Helsinki (September 2012, operator: DNA, 50 Mb/s contract):

    I'm sticking to the old Nokia that my daughter gave me about 8 or 9 years ago.

    It's a PHONE and that's all I want. :D
