EE customers won’t face the nightmare of running out of data if they stream tonight’s Euro 2020 final on their phones. The UK network has announced that it is offering all of its users totally unlimited internet access from 6pm tonight until midnight.
That means anyone who uses EE can stream the entire game plus all the build-up and reaction without fear of a whopping bill arriving in the post. The data can also be used for all of those other online tasks such as making FaceTime calls, posting on social media and checking the web. EE says that recent games have driven record-breaking peaks on its mobile network as fans try and tune in to watch England’s success story.
Speaking about the freebie Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer Group: “Millions of fans across the country will understandably be glued to the final – whether that’s at home, out and about, or at Wembley Stadium connected by EE – and with emotions running high, the last thing you need concern yourself with is data running out. On Sunday evening, customers can rest assured that when it counts, you can count on our award-winning network – to stream every kick, capture every moment and share every roar when the Three Lions bring it home!.”
Along with this free boost, there’s more good news for EE customers with the network now offering a new option to help people stay online.
The UK network has just announced that all new or existing customers who upgrade their current plan will be treated to the firm’s ‘Stay Connected’ guarantee. This update means that anyone going over their monthly data allowance will still be able to connect to the web without needing to buy more access.
Now, for anyone who regularly runs out of data, it’s worth noting that this free internet boost won’t let you stream endless Netflix boxsets or download hours of music files on the move.
It’s been created to keep customers connected to emails and WhatsApp messages until their full allowance kicks in again at the start of a new month.
As EE explains, “the EE Stay Connected service automatically switches on once a customer has used their monthly data allowance and is fast enough for customers to send and receive data messages, check their emails on the go, and get where they need to with access to maps – helping them keep in touch.”
