EE data boost for some customers (Image: EE)
There’s good news for some EE customers.
The mobile network has just revealed that it is now allowing more services to be streamed without eating into users' monthly data allowances.
From today, anyone with a Video Data Pass can stream and download anything from the BBC iPlayer and YouTube without fear of running out of internet access.
These two platforms now join Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, BT Sport, TV Player and MTV Play which are all part of EE's video plan.
EE says its Video Data Pass is available with its new smart plans, as either an inclusive Swappable benefit for EE 4G and 5G Smart Plan customers or for purchase as a standalone Pass for an extra £8.99 per month.
That may sound expensive but if you stream a larger amount of video then it could be worth considering.
The news of this data boost comes as EE has just announced the official launch of 5G.
Customers can now use this super fast service which offers download speeds of over 300Mbps
Along with being much quicker, 5G should bring a far more reliable connection with extra people able to access fast data at the same time.
Those who fancy giving 5G a try can currently find EE's signal available in parts of London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester.
More areas will be added over time with the network confirming that it's rolling out more than 100 new 5G sites every month.
Bristol, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Hull, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow are all set for this new network soon.
Speaking at the launch of 5G, Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division, said: “This is the start of the UK’s 5G journey and great news for our customers that want and need the best connections.
"We’ve started with 5G in some of the busiest parts of the UK, the widest range of 5G devices in the UK, and plans that give customers the best mobile connection and great benefits."EE has just launched its 5G network in the UK (Image: EE)
One thing to note before getting too excited is that you will need a 5G-ready phone to access this new network.
Firm's including Samsung, OnePlus and Oppo have all launched shiny new devices which are powered by 5G with prices starting from £54 per month on contract.
Alongside EE smartphone plans, there's also 5G SIM only option which starts at 20GB per month (£32 per month) and rising to 100GB (£52 per month).
