Extra data. No extra cost.See the deals

With music festival season coming up, EE have called their new promotion Datafest and it’s a decent opportunity to join them on large data plans without the usual high costs.

The offer is basically about getting more data at no extra cost across most their products including selected pay monthly phones, SIM only plans and pay as you go deals.

If you want a phone, you’ll need to order your qualifying deal by the end of 29th June 2017 or if you’d prefer a SIM, the deadline to order is 27th June.

In this guide, we look at what’s included in the offer and what you can save.

Up to 20GB for the price of 5GBSee the SIM plans

Earlier on in May took the step of adding free EU roaming to all their pay monthly SIM only plans but we did notice a slight increase in the monthly pricing of the deals.

Their Datafest offer on SIM only puts that right by adding more data to 3 of the plans including:

20GB for the price of 5GB on a £23.99 plan

12GB for the price of 3GB on a £19.99 plan

8GB for the price of 2GB on a £17.99 plan

Each deal comes with unlimited minutes and texts, plus free BT Sport app access for at least 3 months.

EE are giving away 5x the data on selected phones by adding an extra 20GB of data to their 5GB plan, while not increasing the monthly cost. It's only on a limited number of phones though:

You'll get this on iPhone 7 32GB, Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Huawei P10, where the upfront costs have also been slashed.

This plan comes with the added benefits of free EU roaming and 5 worldwide destinations, 24 months BT Sport app and the fastest 4G speeds possible on EE (which currently stands at 90Mbps).

An additional offer of 5GB for the price of 1GB is available on the lower-cose Samsung Galaxy A3 too.
