With 4G set to make a big splash over the next 18 months, we thought it a good time to see what plans are available for those early adopters, who will drive the uptake.

For the uninitiated 4G is the new spectrum being rolled out over the next 18 months, which will take over from 3G. What it means is faster upload and download speeds for data, better connection and an overall performance improvement.

Most of these plans come with a handset attached and are monthly. Expect more plans for other devices, such as tablets, to be coming our soon.
