Early-adopters of 4G had to go with Everything Everywhere because it had a monopoly on the high speed mobile broadband connection. This meant prices were high compared with a 3G tariff. Now, however, the initial monopoly has paved the way for competition from Vodafone, O2 and Three.
You can now, therefore, shop around for a better deal. But which network is best for you and how much will 4G cost?
Consumers should always begin their 4G journey with the most important consideration, which is coverage. This is because of the cheapest deal is utterly pointless if you are unable to get 4G coverage where you live. There’s no sense in paying something for nothing.
Fortunately networks are bringing 4G to an increasingly large area of the UK, making it more and more likely your area will be catered for. EE, for instance, is committed to covering 98% of the UK population by the end of this year. Vodafone is currently available in 15 cities and O2 in 13 cities.
