EE has announced a number of new 4G products and price plans as sales of its superfast mobile data services outsell 3G for the first time.
The network, which also owns Orange and T-Mobile in the UK, was the first to launch 4G services.
With growing numbers wanting browse on the move, the network is now offering the Buzzard, a 4G hotspot which plugs into a car’s 12v connection and allows up to 10 connections.
It’s also announced the Kite, a “new sleek pocket-sized premium” hotspot for professionals and the colourful and rugged Osprey for younger users.
All three devices will be available on EE’s Shared plans, as well as the new 4G WiFi pay monthly plans, and are free on 24-month plans of £15-per-month and over.
Also new to the network is the Eagle, a 4G Android tablet which EE claims is the UK’s cheapest with prices starting from £49.99 on 24 month pay monthly plans of £15 and above. It’s also available on Pay As You Go for £199.
The Buzzard, Kite and Osprey will be available on EE’s Shared plans, as well as the new 4G WiFi pay monthly plans, and are free on 24-month plans of £15-per-month and over.
Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, said: “With more experience of 4G than any other UK operator, we have unique insight into how the technology is changing behaviour. Our mobile devices have effectively become mini TVs with video traffic already making up over half the data on our 4G network.
“We’re committed to remaining one step ahead – adapting our network to make 4G available where it matters most, with a focus on more rural areas, transport links and offering our customers the best network experience and great value, innovative devices and plans.”
