EE UK Launch New 5G Business Plans for Both Work and Play

Mobile operator EE (BT) has today launched a new range of 5G ready business plans for small businesses, which among other things includes access to new entertainment services “as the traditional lines between work and play continue to blur“. Handset customers also gain additional protection for their device.

Customers who take a business handset with their mobile plan will also gain the cover of a “Lifetime Guarantee” and “Free Next Day Replacement” for their device at no extra cost, as well as the option to upgrade to a new device when they want during their contract. The new business plans can also provide exclusive access to “Smart Benefits” including Apple Music, BT Sport Ultimate, Amazon Prime Video and BritBox.

Naturally there are options for “unlimited data” (mobile broadband) too, but if you opt for a cheaper capped data plan then it’s worth noting that customers also get Reserve Data. This will automatically start once a customer’s data allowance runs out and essentially enables you to stay connected to the internet, albeit at a reduced service speed of just 2Mbps.

Otherwise all plans include free EU roaming, as well as unlimited minutes and texts (SMS).

Pete Oliver, EE Managing Director of SME, said:

“We know that for many of our business customers, work and home life tend to blend into one. That trend is accelerating with more people working from home as a result of the pandemic. That’s why we’re offering 5G ready and new tech specific plans to empower customers to keep on top of their workload and stay entertained during downtime, whether that’s in the home or on the move.

And with unrestricted speeds on data allowances and a Reserve Data safety net, our business plans really do enable customers to get the very most from the UK’s no. 1 mobile network.”

EE handset plans start from £16 +vat per month for Business Essential, £31 for Business Extra and £42 for Business Unlimited. SIM Only, Tablet and Mobile Broadband plans are also available for business customers. Check it all out here.

    My guess is anyone going over the 1TB soft cap risks being ‘upgraded’ to the business tariff.

      They’ve changed it and now its a 600GB FUP still advertised as “unlimited”

    2. Avatar Simi says:

      You are right. I was and my only punishment was £12.50 a month reduction in bill.


    3. Avatar Simi says:

      Jack – hmmm?

      Roaming in EU/EEA is subject to 60GB per month fair use policy and limited to three months of continuous roaming. Unlimited Plans are not available with any other discount or promotion. We may consider usage above 1000GB/month to be excessive and have the right to move you to a more suitable plan.

      And that’s public

      Hi Pete.

    6. Avatar Jack says:

      Hey Simi – if you look at the new T&C’s for new / upgrading then they now consider more than 600gb to be non personal use.

      “We will consider usage above 600GB/month to be non-personal use and have the right to apply traffic management controls to deprioritise your mobile traffic during busy periods or to move you to a business plan.”

      The business unlimited SIM only plan costs less than the personal plan, so the threat of being moved to a business plan isn’t a bad thing.

  2. Avatar James says:

    Wait for the CPI price increase avoid anything with BT brand.

  3. Avatar Simi says:

    Is it me or is there no sim only unlimited anymore? I can’t see it anyway https://shop.ee.co.uk/sim-only/pay-monthly-phones

      After checking out EE website today just noticed they removed the unlimited data sim only that plan only available to purchase with a handset price plan another way to force customer signing up to a expensive phone plan with unlimited data option.
      EE always have tricks in the book to make a couple of extra buck just like the Max plan and 5G plans.

      Just avoid EE rather my money goes to Vodafone or three EE just like to take advantage in this hard times.

    2. Avatar Claire says:

      Had a word with EE the only way to get unlimited mobile broadband is to take out £70 4G/5G router with 1000gb that why they removed the sim unlimited plan too many customers taking out £35 5G plan using with their own router. Dirty company always find ways to milk cash

    3. Avatar CarlT says:

      A publicly traded company with no monopoly changing pricing to try and be more profitable. The horror.

    4. Avatar AnotherTim says:

      The business unlimited SIM only deal is still on the EE website for £27+VATpm on a 24 month plan.

    was looking at vodafone business plus,Full speed 5G sim only 100gb + unlimited talk/txt for 23quid 24mnth, then additional shared data sim 5/month (12month).
    after 100gb expires speed reduced to 2mbps(cheap 5g vodafone speed)

    additional unlimited talk/txt sim sharing the data/deal are 12quid 12months.

    You can get handset thrown in starting at 37 for primary sim, data upgraded to 120gb.

    1. Avatar Tyeth Gundry says:

      they also do business unlimit3d but cant share data across sims.
      my initial plan is to get my parents plus a data sim sharing my contract
