EE reaches 500,000 subscribers, shared data plans coming soon

EE has slowly but surely built up its LTE subscriber base thanks to its head start over rivals, and the company has now having reached the 500,000 milestone. It comes seven months after the network first launched its LTE service in the UK – not bad at all, but those high prices are no doubt still holding people back.

Still, EE has some news that might lure you to the network. The company has announced that it will be introducing new shared data plans allowing customers to split their data between multiple devices without taking out an additional contract. That should be a big help for families or those who wield lots of LTE-enabled gadgets. A large shared data plan may even work out cheaper for some in the long run.

In addition, EE will be introducing pay as you go mobile broadband packages. That’s good news for anyone with a tablet or MiFi that simply wants speedy data without a lengthy contract. EE has offered a MiFi in the past, but it was restricted to 30-day or 24-month contracts. The company hasn’t given specific pricing or availability for either service, saying only that it hopes to roll them out over the summer.
