EE is zero-rating data across its mobile network this Sunday so football fans don’t miss a moment of the Euro 2020 football final. When it counts, EE and BT Mobile customers, including EE SME customers, will enjoy free data from 6pm-midnight on Sunday 11th July to stay connected, whether that’s to stream the game, message their friends or whatever they choose.
EE is launching three services to keep its mobile customers online, including when their monthly data allowances run out. The network will offer a free Stay Connected service as of 7July 2020, which will allow its pay-monthly customers to keep using the internet for free when they’ve used up their data allowances.
From January 2022, EE will start charging UK customers to use their phones in Europe, having previously said it had no plans to reintroduce roaming costs, even after they could do so under the U.K.-EU trade agreement signed in December 2020.
EE has made significant upgrades to its mobile network across key commuter routes in and out of London. In the past year, EE says it has built nearly 70 new 4G sites and upgraded dozens more across multiple lines in London
Partnering with the Scottish Government, the Home Office and WHP Telecoms, EE has connected locations, including Tarskavaig (Skye) and Glencripesdale to its high-speed 4G network, with Killilan (Lochalsh) and Polbain (Wester Ross) due to be connected this summer.
EE today launched a new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate add-on for Android smartphone customers, giving them access to over 100 Xbox games on the go with inclusive unlimited data for just £10 per month, providing a saving of over £100 a year.
EE has extended its next day mobile device repair service to 17 stores in the West Midlands as it welcomes customers back to the English high street. The new service comes as research from EE found that 1 in 3 UK consumers cannot go more than a day without their phones.
BT’s mobile business, EE, has finalised new 5G spectrum holdings following the conclusion of the second, assignment stage of Ofcom’s auction and will start to launch some of the new spectrum into the 5G network immediately. EE won 80MHz overall of the 700MHz and 3.6GHz bands that were on offer in the auction.
