EE giving unlimited data to NHS staff until October 2020

  • EE is today offering unlimited mobile data for NHS staff until 9 October 2020.

    NHS workers have to register online with a valid NHS email address to receive the new offer and this includes those staff already receiving discounts on their monthly mobile plans from EE.

    They'll then receive a text message confirming that the unlimited data is on their account, until 9 October 2020.

    This offer is being supported with a TV campaign featuring Kevin Bacon detailing the offer and thanking NHS workers on behalf of EE for all they are doing to support the country. The campaign will run on TV, video on demand (VOD) and social media from today.

    EE and BT said in a joint statement: "We are doing all we can to increase our support for the NHS and are supporting with technology for hospitals, doctors and nurses, as well as connecting many of the temporary field hospitals around the country, including London’s NHS Nightingale Hospital."

    Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer Division added: “We hope this gives NHS staff one less thing to worry about. They can keep in touch with friends and family and use the internet without worrying about using up their data. Along with the discount we already provide, this is a thank you from all of us at EE to those in the NHS that are working so hard for us all.”

    BT has also made it possible for BT Sport customers to ask the telecoms company to give their monthly subscription credit to the NHS Charities Together for Covid-19 Urgent Appeal.

    So far £282,000 has been donated and BT has expressed their thanks to customers for their generosity.
