EE bumps up allowances for 4G dongles

Good news time. If you have a 4G dongle, your limit has just been increased by operator EE. The bad news? The dongles are not being joined by the mobile handsets.

But let's go with the good news first. If you have a dongle - or you are thinking of buying one - the allowance is now up by around 60 per cent on average. Specifically, the old 2GB limit is now 3GB, the old 3GB is now 5GB and the 5GB limit jumps to 8GB. Pricing obviously stays the same, £16 for 3GB with the dongle costing £50. 5GB costs £21 plus £30 for the dongle, and 8GB for £26 per month with a free dongle. Those are all 18-month deals with a Huawei E392 MBB dongle.

So what about these phone deals? It seems like EE isn't for changing just yet, either because it feels the current allowances are just fine or that sales of phone deals are doing just fine right now, so no need to offer anything more just yet.

'Yet' being the operative word. The competition should kick in around early summer 2013, which is when the likes of Vodafone and O2 will be tempting us in. The perfect time, you would think, for EE to add more value to its offering, especially if criticism continues about its current limits.
