Ok so now that EE have launched 4G and everything. O2 voda and three are up next. Three have said 4G is standard on all contracts.

Voda said that 4G will be a bolt on. Also if you have a iPhone 5/S3/Note 2 you qualify for their 4G price promise where you can have an early upgrade with 70% knocked off the buyout fee. Correct? Then you sign up for a new tariff for 12/24 months.

So on the 4G ready phones that voda have i guess the bolt on will be added on there right?

O2 have said they have a 4G price promise on the iPhone 5 where they will knock off 25% the buyout fee.

But what about for customers signing up right now? Do they get 4G included in the tariff or is there a bolt on like vodafone. I've just seen this https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/phones/sony/xperia-z-purple/

You get unl texts/mins + 4GB Data for £47pm. So does that include 4G? or is this just 3G access and you have to pay more for 4G? Only reason i ask is because there is nothing on the O2 website about it?

Anyone know how it works 100% with O2 and Voda? Am i correct?

Here is an analysis of potential 4G pricing.

Perhaps the most interesting bit is about Multi Device Plans:

But experts agree that later, the 4G battle will be around tariffs, with shared data plans launched around multiple devices in the home. ‘I think you will see disparity in prices for an equal offer, but you will see options and add-ons,’ says Gabriel Brown, senior analyst at Heavy Reading. ‘The most obvious of these will be the multi-device plan; no UK operator offers this yet.’

yes it is.

Mobile network Three has said it will offer 4G at no extra cost when it launches its own high speed offering later this year. It will be added to all existing price plans, with no additional fee payable for existing or new customers. Punters will only need to have a 4G ready phone to get access.

In a statement, Dave Dyson, Three’s UK CEO said, “As we add the next wave of technology to our Ultrafast network, we’ve listened to our customers and thought long and hard about the right way to do it. We don’t want to limit Ultrafast services to a select few based on a premium price and we’ve decided our customers will get this service as standard.”
And to be honest i would have thought O2 and Vodafone would have announced something by now. It's almost June.

I was amused by the EE statement there, “customers struggling to understand what 4G is all about” and “you have to tell people what 4G is about.

Sounds a bit like trying to sell fridges to the Eskimos and sand to the Arabs.

Typical patronising nonsense from EE.

It reminds me of the PAYG Oyster Card debacle. Nowadays when you use your card multiple times a day, you don't pay any more money once you've spent the equivalent of the daily travelcard you could have bought instead.

TFL delayed introducing that because they said it could "confuse" customers.
