EE launches 4GEE Max handset plans with ‘roam like home’ and inclusive BT Sport

  • New three-tier handset plan pricing structure introduced to offer customers increased choice and flexibility
  • 4GEE Max plans include EU roam like home benefits and access to the BT Sport app for the length of the plan and the UK’s fastest 4G speeds
  • New price plans are designed to reinforce EE’s position as the number one smartphone network

EE today unveiled three new tiers of pay monthly handset plans, designed to offer customers increased choice and flexibility and reinforce EE's position as the number one UK network for those wanting to make the most from the latest smartphones.

Available immediately, the new 24 month entry level handset plans, 4GEE Essential plans, offer access to 4G speeds of up to 20Mbps on the UK’s best network, with a handset from as little as £16.99.

4GEE plans, offer unlimited UK minutes and texts, generous data allowances and 4G speeds that are as fast as fibre broadband (up to 60Mbps) when users are out and about. Customers also receive unlimited minutes, texts and 500MB of data a month for use abroad in the EU.

Finally, for those wanting the ultimate smartphone experience, EE has introduced 4GEE MAX plans, combining the largest data bundles as well as 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.

NEW EE PAY MONTHLY HANDSET PLANS

Please visit www.ee.co.uk for a complete list of handsets available with each of the following plans. Select handsets available with no up-front cost.

When combined with the latest smartphones, EE customers benefit from a 4G network which covers more than two thirds of the geography of the UK (more than any other network). EE’s superfast network has the most 4G capacity and the fastest network speeds, boosted by 4G+ in the UK’s busiest towns and cities. EE also offers WiFi Calling and 4G Calling on select devices, allowing customers with enabled handsets to call and text in more places across the UK. What’s more, customers receive usage alerts when they’re near the end of their data allowances, and thanks to EE’s data caps, will never run up an unexpected bill.

Noel Hamill, Managing Director of Marketing, EE: “Customers want to pair the best smartphone with the best network, so we’ve introduced a new range of plans to offer increased choice and flexibility. This includes our new 4GEE Max plans with inclusive roaming and BT Sport benefits - providing our greatest range of package benefits to date.

With a world-leading network, great plans and great benefits, EE really is the number one destination for those wanting to get the best network experience.”
