EE’s 4G Christmas Promotion

Alongside the launch of the Acatel One Touch Pop 7S 4G tablet, EE is offering its customers a little bit of extra Christmas cheer.  Customers that buy a Pay-As-You-Go 4G smartphone or tablet between now and Christmas (or 31st January 2015 for tablets) will receive 100MB of free data every month.  This doesn’t require a minimum spend or top up, the 100MB should be available to use each and every month. Of course additional 4G data is also available to buy, starting at £3 for EE 4G Pay-As-You-Go tablet users and just £1 for EE Pay-As-You-Go smartphone users.

EE has provided a few example of what customers could do with their free 100MB. They could:

  1. Use WhatsApp to send out 2000 festive messages
  2. Stream 1 hour 40 minutes of their favourite Christmas songs
  3. Spend four hours browsing for bargains in the January sales
  4. Download 20 top tunes for their New Year party

According to Christopher Traggio, Director of Pay As You Go at EE, “The Christmas sales have come early this year for those shopping for a new Pay As You Go smartphone or tablet. With the most affordable 4G tablet in the UK, plus free data each and every month on the UK’s biggest and fastest network, we’re helping customers purchase a gift that will keep on giving, long after the festive season is over.”

Existing EE customers or customers with smartphones or tablets from other Pay-As-You-Go networks can make use of EE’s Recycle and Reward service to trade their old devices for additional discounts on the latest 4G devices.
