EE bumps LTE mobile broadband data by up to 3GB a month

UK 4G carrier EE has quietly tweaked its mobile broadband plans, increasing the amount of data subscribers get per month by as much as 3GB. The new plans – which are also joined by a monthly rolling plan for those contract-averse – stick at the same price points as before, beginning at £15.99 on the 18-month agreement, but now offer a choice of 3GB, 5GB, or 8GB of LTE data.

The £15.99 plan, which previously came with 2GB of LTE data, now comes with 3GB, whereas the £20.99 plan gets 5GB rather than 3GB as before. Finally, the most expensive mobile broadband package, at £25.99 per month, climbs from 5GB to 8GB. Those prices also include some degree of subsidy on either a USB modem or a mobile WiFi hotspot.

Meanwhile, the monthly rolling plan is a new mobile data introduction, offering the freedom of no minimum contract term. Offered SIM-only for £15.99 per month for 5GB of data, there's also a £12.99/1GB option including a modem.

At time of writing, there's no mention of the SIM-only data plans on EE's site, though the webstore has been updated with the new contract data allowances. Those already subscribed to a plan will automatically have their allotments increased, EE says.
