That is more or less what I was "told" when taking out offer, "double data", which ended 26th octobre...
We have 4 virgin mobile contract at home (1 account holder), I was quite easily "offered" 5000mins with 5gb of data for £10/ months.
When asking about 4G, she said : we are definitely working on it. It is for very soon, but said basically: new contract...new (higher!?!)price.
Obviously, lady said there is NOTHING official just give us a call when available...what was the point of this "double data" offer if we need new contract with higher price to "enjoy" 4g on virgin mobiles. ALSO, when reading the help 4g section in m.virginecare.com, it says new 4g sim card is required ?!?! am I reading correctly? In other word, current existing customers would NOT get "automatically" the 4G upgrade, as new sim card is required.

I live in Chippenham and EE offer all three tiers here, my EE sim can receive over 32 Mbps and send at over 16, that's jus driving around town in the car with my wife running Speedtest
John, I think your hopes were set to high, lol
Virgin Mobile has always been run as a basic service with a reasonable price tag to match, their new 4g plans are no different. What they have managed to get at those prices on a 30 day contract is pretty good as I see it.
Examples: EE 30 day contracts are all capped at 20Mbps, also the same for their cheapest 12 month contracts. BT Sims are all 12 month contracts and capped at 30 Mbps, extra speed to 60Mbps available at a £4 monthly extra charge.

Hi, I am sorry to be a bit daft lke just wanted to ask if anyone else with an iPhone is getting LTE instead of 4G in the signal bar? I have tried my 4G ready SIM card in my current iPhone 6S and my old iPhone 5S and 4G will not show at all, I have tried rebooting both devices, removing the SIM, resetting the network settings and still no prevail and both devices keep connecting to a LTE network instead of 4G. When my Vodafone SIM is in both devices 4G works fine and displays in the signal bar.
If this is correct and my phone/s and SIM are working correctly I apologise.
