The iPhone 5 has been out for a while now, but we want to get it on the fast 4G networks. They are going to offer both 24 month and 12 month contracts. Sadly we will not be able to get unlimited data options. When EE was asked why this is, they pointed to the fact that their 3G customers usually go for data packages between 500MB and 1GB.
However we will be using a much faster download service, which means we will be watching more videos and much more bandwidth eating content. I guess EE want to test the waters and obtain some statistics on how much people are actually going to use, and more to the point, will the network be able to cope with such a high demand?
