BT Mobile has announced the launch of a new bolt-on for its customers called Extra Speed 4G. The bolt-on will take advantage of EE’s superfast 4G network to give users mobile broadband with up to 60Mb speeds.
While most 4G internet in the UK averages speeds of 15Mb, in certain areas the EE network, which BT Mobile uses, is far faster. Those speeds were previously accessible to EE's customers but not those on BT Mobile - something the new bolt-on will finally rectify.
Without the Extra Speed 4G bolt-on, mobile broadband speeds on BT Mobile are capped at 30Mb. That's already incredibly fast, but even quicker speeds are ideal for tasks like streaming video, posting pictures, or downloading apps.
Customers who take out Extra Speed 4G before 25 February can sample the faster speeds for free - the price of the bolt-on will be credited back to your account by the end of March.
It's not available to everyone, however - you'll need a 4G-compatible smartphone with the specs to handle the new speed, and quicker speeds are only accessible in Extra Speed areas of the country.
It's a good idea to make use of the free month to see if extra speeds are useful to you or not.
Extra Speed 4G operates on a 30-day rolling basis, like all BT Mobile bolt-ons, and costs £4 a month after your free trial month.
