The UK’s mobile phone carrier EE plans to start certain pay-for-speed packages by the end of September which will benefit the public. Its DoubleSpeed 4G Service will begin from July 4.
EE is a joint venture of Orange SA and Deutsche Telekom AG. The network plans to introduce new packages that will increase the speed of connectivity. According to Slash Gear, its 4th Generation Network is to be pricey as well. The 4G “twice-as-nice” service runs at 30 megabits per second which is indeed fast. EE happens to be the pioneer and trendsetter in the United Kingdom. It introduced the English to high-end mobile technology. The transferring of videos, images and files is all set to get faster and faster. The main factor in all this is competition. Vodafone Group Plc and Telefonica SA are two other giants which have similar designs. But EE has already announced its intentions.
The 4G connection which will feature the speediest service in all of Europe is to be activated in over a dozen cities of the UK. The speed is much faster than that found in the USA, Japan or South Korea. The plan goes into effect starting from tomorrow. The price values will vary in accordance with the package or deal. There are even pay-as-you-go (PAYG) options. The 4G LTE services are being made available for customers who can afford them. They can use them at their own discretion. The set up can be used mutually between five gadgets. At a premium of 112 pounds per month you may gain access to unlimited text message services and calls. Furthermore, 20 GB of data storage capacity exists in the device.
Another good thing EE launched was Cash on Tap. It is operable on NFC-enabled phones. You may use the facility in over 230,000 shopping locations for as much as 20 pounds. These include within their purview: McDonald’s, Boots and Greggs. Meanwhile, the expected number of 4G localities was expected to be ten.
But then EE came up with another surprise by adding two more cities to the list. This made for a grand total of twelve cities. The whole project has been in the pipeline since some time. The rate of growth of mobile connections and the widening of the user base impelled EE to take this wise step. The evolution was a part of the progressive outlook of EE. And the commendable act is the super fast speed in which EE managed all this. It was a virtually stressful period during which the laudable scheme was accomplished with panache. And the successful results show the efforts that went into these plans.
