There is no information on a dispatch date but the handset is expected to arrive around the 15th of March.
Carrier EE will have the device on a number of its 4G price plans that includes the £41 per month package which needs an upfront cost of £69.99 for the handset, and for your money you will get unlimited calls and texts as well as 1GB of data on a two year contract. The HTC One will also be available on Orange and T-Mobile for the same upfront cost from £36 per month.

Rival Carphone Warehouse has the handset available free on price plans beginning at £36 per month and again bundled with the free headphones.
In the US AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile have confirmed to be stocking the handset, with Verizon yet to announce any plans for the device.
