This month, EE subscribers will face a contentious price increase, but there is an easy way to avoid it.
Next week, EE will make some significant modifications. Here’s what’s new, as well as how to save money on your smartphone bill.
Customers of EE are in for some bad news this month, as the UK network has reinstated unpopular tariffs for using devices in Europe. Britons can currently use their UK limit when traveling in the EU without fear of higher expenses when they return home, but that is about to change with the introduction of a £2 per day tax.
For £20 per month, EE is offering a 5G-ready SIM with 160GB of data.
You’ll also get unlimited calls and texts, as well as six months of Apple Music for free.
Although the increased prices will not be implemented until January 2022, the amendment to EE’s terms will take effect on July 7.
So, what exactly does this entail, and how can you avoid having to pay the new £2 fare when you travel?
The new regulations will only apply to new consumers joining the network or existing customers switching to a new package after the July deadline, according to EE.
That means you won’t be penalized for sending messages and checking Facebook by the pool if you buy a new contract today or switch to something different before Wednesday.
If your first contract has expired and you don’t mind retaining your current phone, now is an excellent opportunity to get a new SIM.
EE has a number of deals, including one for £20 that includes 160GB of 5G internet.
If you act quickly, you’ll be able to use that fast online access while traveling abroad without paying anything extra.
“From January next year, EE will introduce a new flat fee of £2 per day for customers wishing to roam across 47 European destinations (with the exception of ROI, which is included in domestic plans), allowing them to use their plan’s full data, minutes, and texts allowance,” an EE spokesperson said of the changes. This will only apply to new and upgrading EE customers starting on July 7, 2021, and will help fund our UK-based customer care and leading UK network.
“Customers who want to travel overseas for a longer period of time will be able to purchase a 30-day Roam Abroad Pass. Customers on the Essential plan will be able to purchase the Pass for £10, according to Brinkwire Summary News.
