EE unveils more affordable 4G plans for the UK

UK mobile operator EE has announced new entry-level 4G plans for the market. These new contracted plans start from £13.99 per month, enabling consumers to take advantage of faster Internet speeds at a more affordable price point. The operator has been criticized in the past for its pricing of LTE in the UK.

If you have yet to hop onto the 4G train, EE is now looking as a more affordable option. That said, the likes of Three with its unlimited data plans is still a superb alternative.
