There’s a real sense of competitiveness in the mobile industry right now, with key players EE and Vodafone working hard to upgrade their networks to add speed and capacity. 4G might still feel relatively new, but there are already many signs of problems affecting every network in many […]
Three launches free “Go Binge” streaming on new Advanced plans, but will this spell the end of truly unlimited data?
I had to think long and hard about how to report this news, as clearly Three is thrilled to be offering free video streaming to users on its new Advanced Plans – starting at 4GB and above. On the face of it, that’s great. Pay for a small […]
Today I saw a new smartphone from a company I never even realised made smartphones. The Life Boost 4G mobile from STK, with 5.5-inch display and dual-camera, will go on sale later in the year for around £200.
The battle between Vodafone and EE is hotting up, with each network rapidly working to enhance their respective networks to offer faster speeds and greater capacity. At this point in time, Three and O2, each with very limited capacity and a desperate need to refarm 3G spectrum to stand […]
Without a doubt, data roaming will be easier in Europe from June this year, but venture beyond the EU (that we’re trying to leave anyway) and things can be rather complicated. And by complicated, I mean expensive. Let’s face it, in most cases data roaming totally sucks. Even on tariffs that already include roaming […]
I’ve written lots about mobile networks over the years, especially 4G, but my knowledge of the inner workings can’t hold a candle to some. So that’s why I thought it worth asking an expert. Peter Clarke is a resident poster on the Digital Spy mobile forums, giving highly technical and […]

With Christmas looming, it seemed somewhat unlikely that we’d see EE switch on its long awaited 800MHz 4G service until next year now. Or at least that’s what I’ve been telling people for a while. So colour me surprised when I discovered that 800 will be activated this year […]
In addition to launching new SIM-only plans next month, EE is also revising its mobile broadband 4G plans from 1st November 2016. This applies to Wi-Fi plans (plans sold with or without a dongle or portable hotspot), tablet plans, and EE’s home broadband plans that come with a […]
Having now obtained the prices for the new EE plans launching next week, it’s now possible to look and see whether you should sign up now, or wait. Previously I reported that EE was changing the game with three new tiers, offering up to 40GB [EDIT: It’s actually restricted […]
Whether we’re leaving the EU one day or not, it isn’t slowing the industry from stepping up the competition when it comes to European roaming. This time, it’s the turn of EE to shake things up – big time. Three kicked things off with its 3G-only, heavily throttled, Feel at Home […]
