EE is finally offering truly unlimited 4G and 5G data plans

As EE continues its 5G rollout, the firm has launched its first-ever truly unlimited data plans

EE is the first network to offer 5G in the UK and now it’s gone one better –it’s just announced its first Unlimited Data Plans with no data allowance limits and no speed caps. The good news is even if you’re not in the market for a 5G phone, there are also unlimited 4G data plans to choose from. 

Commonly, network providers offering “unlimited” packages are in reality offering just enough data that most you’d soon reach the cap within a few days of solidly streaming Netflix and Spotify. However, as mentioned above, with these EE plans there’s no limit whatsoever.

EE is boasting that its 5G will provide an instant connection, even in busy areas, offering download speeds of mere minutes on video content and the ability to gift up to 120GB of your unlimited data to other devices connected to your account. EE’s “swappable benefits” system also allows for you to swap extras such as BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video in and out whenever you please.

Whilst the 5G phone plans are far from inexpensive – prices start at £44 a month on a SIM-only deal – they’re said to include EE’s new “network boost” perk and you’ll be able to choose from a number of newly released 5G-ready devices.

In our recent review of EE’s services, we praised the network’s excellent 4G coverage – put simply, we reckon EE is the best network provider in the UK. If the prices for 5G contracts are scaring you off, you’ll be pleased to learn that the 4G unlimited data plans are slightly more affordable, starting at £34 a month.

If you’re dubious of the 5G coverage in the UK, know that EE is rolling it out in six major cities with another ten to follow by the end of the year and ten more throughout 2020. For more information on coverage, check the EE website.
