This is a first in Europe so far: The market leader (EE) now sells only plans enabled with 4G/LTE for prepaid.
Given the fact, that they have a coverage of 80% for LTE now, while its competitors are at around 50%, this seems plausible.

From a MNO perspective, it's an experiement nobody dared in Europe so far:
The no.1s in France (orange), Netherlands (kpn), Spain (movistar), Austria (a1) or Germany (telekom) have not given access to 4G/LTE to prepaid customers up to now. There, they are the most restrictive. In these countries the smaller MNOs opened LTE for prepaid.
EE is clearly taking a very different approach in the UK.
