Limited-time offer

Pixel and Pixel XL are available from EE on a variety of 4GEE plans. Customers who purchase a 32GB 5” Pixel or 5.5” Pixel XL on EE in limited edition Really Blue, Quite Black or Very Silver between the 17 February and 3 March, will be able to take advantage of a limited time offer. Pixel will be available free on a 4GEE Max plan offering unlimited UK minutes, unlimited UK texts, plus 7GB data per month for £45.99 per month, and Pixel XL will be available with the same package for £50.99 per month. Customers who choose this 4GEE Max plan will also receive a free Daydream VR Headset worth £69 and access to 10 BAFTA-winning movies* from Google Play which include Les Miserablés, Billy Elliot and Boyhood – all at no extra cost. EE is also offering new damage insurance for the Pixel and Pixel XL handsets from just £8 per month and full cover from £12 per month.

EE’s 4GEE Max plans give customers access to the UK’s fastest 4G speeds, and inclusive access to the BT Sport App for the duration of the plan. What’s more, customers can use their plan’s call, text and data allowance to ‘roam like home’ when abroad in the EU

Pixel and Pixel XL are compatible with EE’s 4G+ LTE-A CAT 9 network which means they are faster on EE than on any other UK network. EE’s customers also use WiFi Calling allowing them to call and text in more places across the UK, as well as 4G Calling, so they can continue to download at full 4G speeds whilst on the phone.

Both handsets also come with unlimited cloud storage, so customers can use the UK’s biggest and fastest network to upload their photos and videos in full resolution and never run out of space. Smart Storage removes old photos that are already backed up when space is needed, which means users never have to delete one special moment to have another.

Pixel and Pixel XL are available in limited edition Really Blue while stocks last.

Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices, EE, said, “Pixel, Phone by Google, was an instant success with customers when it launched last year, and the new Really Blue limited edition is sure to turn heads. We have the very best Google has to offer, on the UK’s biggest and fastest network, creating a compelling package for smartphone fans around the country.”

Offering 4G coverage across more than 75% of the UK’s landmass (more than any other network), EE has the most network capacity as well as the fastest upload and download speeds. EE has also committed to expanding 4G coverage to reach 95% of the UK landmass by 2020 – further than any mobile network has ever gone.
