The U.K.’s first — and currently only — 4G network, run by carrier EE, has announced it is increasing the size of the data caps on some of its mobile broadband tariffs by around 60 percent, while keeping its pricing structure the same.
The nation’s biggest telco Telstra has denied that several ADSL broadband upgrades in Tasmanian towns not scheduled to be immediately serviced by the National Broadband Network had anything to do with the lack of immediate plans for NBN fibre to be rolled out in the areas concerned.
The Competitive Carriers' Coalition (CCC), which represents Telstra's competitors in Australia, has hit out at the dominant carrier for not revealing its plans to structurally separate in preparation for the incoming National Broadband Network.
National broadband company, Internode, has called on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to force Telstra to end the “price squeeze” caused by its “anti-competitive broadband pricing.”
EE, the company which operates the U.K.’s first to market and currently only 4G/LTE cellular network: 4GEE, has bowed to the inevitable — announcing it plans to add a beefier tariff to its price-plans. The new 20GB monthly limit will cost £46 per month, a promotional price for sign ups before February 28 — after which it will rise to £61.
