Samsung Galaxy S5 with superfast EE - available to pre-order-today.

EE, the UK's most advanced digital communications company, today announced that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is now available for pre-order on the UK’s biggest and fastest 4G network.

From today, the Galaxy S5 is available to pre-order on a range of 4G price plans via EE stores, telesales, and the online shop. Customers who choose the Galaxy S5 on a £37.99/pm EE Extra plan before 11th April (£59.99 upfront cost), will receive a unique pre-order offer giving them twice the amount of data of EE’s standard 4G plans - taking their monthly limit up to 4GB - for the duration of their contract. This also includes unlimited minutes and texts to use both in the UK and Europe.

 

Customers on this plan will also receive:

·         Inclusive roaming calls and texts to select international destinations

·         2 for 1 cinema tickets with EE Film

·         Exclusive discounts on EE’s superfast Fibre Broadband, so customers can enjoy blistering speeds in the home as well as on-the-move

A ‘CAT 4’ device, the S5 is perfectly suited to EE’s superfast, double-speed network, which provides users with the fastest mobile connectivity on the move. EE was recently named the UK’s number one mobile network following rigorous independent testing by RootMetrics®, delivering the best performance in all major categories, including speed, mobile internet and reliability.

Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices at EE, said, “This is exactly the type of device we had in mind when we built the UK’s biggest and fastest network – it’s highly powerful and delivers a next-generation mobile experience that demands next-generation 4G connectivity. Even before the pre-orders have opened, we’ve seen strong interest from customers and the S5 looks like it will be one of the most popular handsets of the year.”

4G from EE is already available in 175 towns and cities across the UK – covering more than 70% of the population. Combined with the hardware power of the Galaxy S5, the EE network will enable customers to enjoy the best possible mobile experience on a truly national scale, allowing them to watch live TV on the move without buffering, play live multiplayer games on-the-go and download large email attachments quicker than ever.
