UK Orange users....

Are you going to swith to the EE LTE 4G service, and if so on what tariff?

I currently am paying 31 per month with 1Gig download on 3G.

A bit pissed of they want an extra 10 per month to go to LTE 4G and keep the data limit

Plus I hear that the speeds aren't that much better.....

daylight robbery. stay well away from it. When the other networks get their license to roll 4G then consider it. It is a monopoly now for Orange & Tmo and offcon shouldve never allowed it to happen

Thats what I think really...I don't do a lot of hi-level streaming...so the ( alleged ) speed gain will not really be that much benifit....I reckon I'll hold on
until real competition kicks in...just annoying.

I don't live anywhere near a big city so it'll probably be at least a year before there is 4G in my town. I therefore have pretty much no reason to switch.

I just switched to T-Mobile with unlimited everything for 21 per month SIM only on iphone 4S. I am getting speeds of up to 10 Mbps, i never saw more than 3Mbps with previous O2 experience. I tried 3 which seem to get good press and was shocked at speeds of 300 kbps download. Why would i want to pay for 4G available today as well as the cost of another device. I think EE have been investing heavily in their 3G network as well.

I'm with orange but not moving to EE...yet. For a start I'd have to pay more and secondly I'd have to sign another two year contract when I've only got 9 months left on this one so really don't see the point in me doing it. Will assess the 4G options when I get to upgrade in the summer.
