Out of all the SIM only plans available this August on EE, we'd say their best value deal is their 12‑month SIM below, which gets you 100GB data, plus unlimited minutes and texts for £20 a month:

In comparison to the rest of EE's current SIM only plans, it's one of the best. But it is beatable on price, even if you're set on joining a provider that uses the EE network. Here's where you can beat it on other networks:

Their 25GB for £15 SIM is another good option

For a smaller amount of data, EE are also offering this £15 SIM, which includes 25GB data, unlimited minutes and texts on a 12‑month plan. It's another of their best deals:

It does enough to get into our pick of EE's best SIMs but that doesn't mean it's unbeatable on price. Other providers (even ones that use the EE network) can beat it. See lower-priced networks' deals here:

EE's 160GB for £20 plan is a good option too

Our views on EE's network in generalRead our full review

In our review of EE, we said they have the best 4G and 5G coverage out of all UK networks, as well as having the fastest 4G speeds by far. It’s the main reason we think people would want to join EE.

You have the choice between 1-month, 12-month or 24-month contracts on EE. Generally, the longer the contract the lower the monthly cost, but you should compare here in case there are any special deals on.

EE are often one of the most expensive networks. There are a few cheaper providers who use the EE network (including BT and Plusnet Mobile) but it can also be worth it to look for hidden deals.

Their regular plans don’t offer much in the way of benefits. You get some free trials for entertainment services, but no inclusive roaming or unique benefits. Their premium Smart plans offer a few extra benefits, however.

EE will send you your SIM card within 2 working days. The package you receive will contain each size of SIM card that you can pop into any phone. EE are one of the few networks to offer eSIMs (see how they work here).

You have 14 days after the arrival of your SIM card to return it and get a full refund if you’re not satisfied. Here’s how you do it.

To stop customers running up bills they can’t pay, EE will require you to pass a credit check to join. We can’t say exactly how strict these are. But if you fail a credit check you can take one of their monthly payg bundles instead.

If you’re switching to EE from another provider you can keep your number by getting a PAC from your provider and sending it to EE at any time. See their full instructions here.
