The 6GB will be a total data allowance, whether over 4G or 3G.

Not forgetting 2G data. It may spend a lot of time on 2G

You're charged the same regardless.

Not sure about Vodafone, but I believe some of the networks give you 90 days (or whatever) to downgrade to a cheaper 3G contract if you're not happy with 4G coverage. Might be worth checking this with VF.

Do they? Are you sure?
As has been said, you just pay for data.
Doesn't matter how it's delivered (GPRS, EDGE, HSPA, LTE).

O2 certainly do. As I say I'm not sure what the deal is with VF.

You're paying extra - a 5 flat fee - for access to the 4G network, not the data you use on it.

Which also gives you spotify premium or Sky Sports Mobile....the former being 10 a month on its own. So for the extra data and spotify premium I reckon it is worth the extra 5 quid.

If you had any interest in either of those services, which not everybody does. Every network keeps spamming me with these "value added extras" I don't give a crap about, I don't need three Spotify subscriptions, I just want 4G for the improved coverage and speeds.

If I was getting 10 a month worth of extras I'd rather ditch the crap I don't use and have them put more money towards the thing I actually do use - the network itself.

Are they standard subscriptions? I.E. could a customer use it on their other devices such as a laptop too?

Spotify is multi device and can be used as if it was any normal spotify premium account you were paying 10 for.

The sky sports is linked to the device or sim. Not sure which.
