Fortunately SlashGear spotted the changes to the EE 4G mobile broadband tariffs. It seems probably in response to consumer demand, that the USB dongle and Mobile WiFi router products are gaining a little extra usage at no extra cost.
|Device/Tariff||Old Allowance||New Allowance||Price Per Month||Device Cost|
|Huawei E589 router||2GB||3GB||£15.99||£49.99|
|Huawei E589 router||3GB||5GB||£20.99||£29.99|
|Huawei E589 router||5GB||8GB||£25.99||Free|
|Huawei E392 dongle||2GB||3GB||£15.99||£49.99|
|Huawei E392 dongle||3GB||5GB||£20.99||£29.99|
|Huawei E392 dongle||5GB||8GB||£25.99||Free|
Apparently for those who already have a suitable mobile broadband device and just want a simple monthly rolling plan, there is a £15.99 product with 5GB of data included, but we are unable to find any sign of it on the EE website.
The EE website is one of the more painful to use websites we have used for some time, which is laid out such that lots of scrolling are needed, e.g. on a 1200 pixel high monitor, you can see just 3 data plans and a tall banner image for the next set of tariffs. With existing Orange customers now getting directed between the two sites, the scope for confusion and people just walking away to another provider.
