If you’re either with T-Mobile or Orange and would like to enjoy lightning-fast 4G internet on an iPhone 5, you can make the switch to EE’s 4GEE network. You can do this even in mid-contract. You will not be required to pay off the remainder of the contract
The iPhone 5 can connect to the 4GEE’s 4G spectrum, which will be launched towards the end of this year. To take advantage of the handsets 4G capabilities, you’re going to have to switch networks.
Getting out of a contract will require you to settle the remaining months. However, if you’ve signed up with either T-Mobile or Orange, switching over to EE (formerly known as Everything Everywhere) will not require you to pay off the remainder of the contract. You will not pay off the remainder, but you will have to sign up for a new two-year contract. Furthermore, the contract must be the same monthly price and length.
According to EE, “The process will be simple, and all that is required is a new SIM card and EE plan.”
Sadly, not all networks will allow you to make the switch to 4G that easily. O2 is offering its customers to switch to 4G, only if you’re switching to the 4G iPhone 5. Furthermore, you will have to pay off the remainder of the contract, buy O2 will give you a 10% discount and cover VAT. We’re sure if you should take this deal, since O2’s 4G network will not be full blown until 2013. Furthermore, we’re not sure if Apple will be releasing an iPhone that can connect to their 4G network.
Will you be switching to EE even if you’re in the middle of your contract with T-Mobile or Orange to take advantage of 4G internet on the iPhone 5? Let us know through a comment.
