    As is traditional with Vodafone - more expensive than their rivals. EE are around £3-£4 cheaper on the 24 months plans, so it's really interesting that Voda have decided not to (or that they can't) compete on price, so I guess they must be going for service levels.

    I will be curious how their network performs - I get an avg of 38-42meg on a speed test with EE; with Voda being more of a premium phone provider, will we see better average speeds I wonder?

    Its expensive and I wont go with them however I will say that im glad Vodafone shows a bit of understanding with regards to 4G as they have doubled the data allowance compared to the non 4g tariffs, in a way there is no price difference! Its all moved by one tariff which is good if you already pay that much and can justify it etc etc.

    Vodafone and EE wont be getting my money when I eventually upgrade my Nexus 4 (only if it dies as I cant fault it enough to consider upgrading!) however Three will be my first port of call as its cheap and very fast, Three in my area seems very solid cant fault it much faster speeds than any other network .

    Yeah I'm waiting for Three's 4G. Would be welcome since I've now unfortunately lost all landline broadband
    Having said that, it's generally faster than what I was stuck with before..

    That's...actually not bad value, especially when you compare the SIM only plans. Still gonna wait 18 months or so until they drop the price some more, but still!
