EE is shaking things up with a bunch of new pay monthly plans that bring plenty of bonus features to customers. The latest update from the UK network includes new Smart, Essential and Smart Sim options with all bringing instant access to the latest 5G data speeds.
This new superfast mobile technology offers downloads at over 300Mbps and, until now, had only been reserved for those EE users prepared to pay a premium.
EE launched 5G early last year with the firm now rolling it out in over 70 areas in the UK including Bath, Glasgow, Manchester, London, Belfast, Hull, Newcastle, Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham and Bristol.
Along with those quicker speeds, there’s also a new addition that sure to go down well with customers.
Called Reserve Data, this free option automatically starts once a Smart Plan customer’s high-speed data allowance runs out.
- Sky customers finally set for the broadband speed boost they deserve
EE says that Reserve Data will be fast enough to access apps like WhatsApp, Google Maps and Apple Music, so Smart Plan and Smart SIM customers can stay connected with friends and stream music until next months’ data starts again.
You can of course still buy a data pack if you think you’ll need it but these can be expensive and Reserve Data should mean many don’t need to spend extra money.
EE’s latest Smart Plans, customers can now select BritBox (worth £5.99 per month) as a Swappable Benefit, which offers access to the biggest collection of British box sets including: Top Gear, Downton Abbey, Happy Valley and Gavin & Stacey, with many box sets including Cold Feet, Classic Doctor Who, Shetland and Broadchurch unavailable in full on-demand anywhere else.
Britbox now joins Amazon Prime Video, Video Data Pass, Roam Further Pass and BT Sport Ultimate as part of EE’s Swappable Benefits.
Sharon Meadows, Director of Propositions, Consumer, EE said: “We want to provide as many people as possible with access to the faster speeds, greater capacity and improved latency that 5G brings – so we’ve made all our new pay monthly handset plans, as well as our new Smart Sim plans, come with 5G as standard. When combined with inclusive Reserve Data, flexible Swappable Benefits, unlimited data, Service Packs and the option to upgrade anytime, EE’s Smart Plans really do enable customers to get the very most from their smartphone on the UK’s no. 1 mobile network”.
