Just called to upgrade my sim card and told I need to buy my month old iPhone 5 contract out to receive one, I wouldn't have got one a month ago if they had told me that, when I bought my iPhone 5 I was told to call T-Mobile and they will send out the 4G not charge me £2000 to but out and the re-buy the phone I already have.

Compared to ANYTHING! £36 for literally 3 minutes of downloading. Even their top end package data will be gone after 55 minutes. 55 minutes of data a month is the maximum you can get! It's going to take quite some time for 4G to become unlimited & reliable and even then, how much do you think they're going to charge for THAT. I'm quite happy with 3G tbh, I can do everything I want on it as it is and I get unlimited for £10 a month. I have WIFI at home and work, as do most people, do we really need 4G! I don't think so.

EE is 2 words. Rip Off. I mean yes they have to make their money but seriously, you can chew up their 500mb in minutes. Unless you're on of those "I want it any cost" type of person, you seriously do not need the EE 4G plan. 3G offers enough to do everything, is it worth paying so much more so your download is quicker? I'd rather find a free wifi hotspot (which you can find everywhere in the country) or wait to get home to download, rather than pay these joke prices for data.

I'm on T-Mobile (EE) and currently receiving 10-19mbps of UNLIMITED data on 3G! Unlimited TOO so I don't think that 4G is even needed...

I'm on T-Mobile with an unlocked iPhone 5 and I already get nearly 10mbps, if LTE actually is 5x faster, Virgin Media have just lost a customer.
