Sim only 30GB

New to EE, got one of these plans on sim only, just curious as to why EE cap their data speeds (60mb)

i don’t think any of the other big 4 cap speeds? 

My number is porting over from Three tomorrow

Hi @a_ukboy.


Most users will find that 60mbps is more than enough, but if you feel you need more you can add the Go Faster add-on to your account to access our fastest 4G speeds.


Access to these speeds depends on the location you're in and the device you are using.

Re: Sim only 30GB

I don't understand why you have to pay more, it's stupid. Surely if we could all download at the  faster speed this would free the network up for others? Don't forget the faster speeds are only available in certain locations, so check out the coverage map to ensure your not wasting your hard earned cash for no reason. 


Seeing your question made me start thinking, why Im paying £2 each month per phone for non cap speed.

@leeuk. The simple answer to your question is because EE can. A lot of customers believe that faster is better and are willing to pay the extra to get the better, whether they need it or not is a different question.
