Found 29th May 2016
I was due an upgrade (existing Orange EE Customer).
Phoned EE and said I was leaving and required PAC code.

When asked why...told them that BT had a better deal....(20gb data, UL mins/texts for £20 per month)....

They immediately said they'd match it and offer a second SIM at a reduced of £10.80 a month.

Very worthwhile sticking to EE as the coverage is so good.

Not for everybody so expect it to go cold...miseries.

they are good... I just managed to get my number changed for free for the third time.... it's usually 35 pounds

BT owns EE, and has the same coverage, as it is the same system.

BT runs on the standard speed EE network, all customers who go with EE directly get double speed internet as well as extra perks such as tethering, Wuaki Movies, EU usage etc.

In short, its better to go directly with EE than BT at the moment.

Cold, they can do 25GB for £18.99 if you ask nicely.

Same as above 25gb

Well, I wouldn't quite say by 'ask nicely' because I had to get a PAC code, wait for the next day to get a call for the deal to come through.

The guy I spoke to (to get my PAC code) said there is no such thing as a 25GB plan - but it definitely is worth it as there is no risk.. If you don't use the PAC code within 30 days then they just continue billing as normal.

due upgrade June so will be checking out what they can offer.... Cheers OP

Currently on o2 sim only deal paying £15 a month for 1gb data, i need a way to get on the EE network without paying through the nose

Any suggestions?

I'm due an upgrade from EE but have been offered rubbish (including an EE shop assistant saying "seems like you've got a good deal, we can't offer anything better") Will definitely be trying this in the morning. Thanks

If you're beyond your contractual obligation then just request your PAC

No it doesn't! it was proposed but the competition commission from Brussels stopped it. As it went against the rules and not enough carriers in the UK

I mean how to get on an ee tariff without paying stupid money

Their normal tariffs are silly money for new customers

That was three with o2 wasn't it?

I'm on 4GEE and data is quite slow unless you're in central London. Once you leave London, reception is very average specially during busy time or when others are likely to be streaming..

Buffers a lot, even checking emails can be a task.

HOT is you live in central London
COLD if you don't ..

That was O2 and Three that got veto'd. BT does own EE and has done so since February this year

You are completely wrong. BT owns 100% of EE. The EU approved that deal are rejected the other takeover that was on the card which was one of the other operators.

Currently on Vodafone simo 12 month deal at £20 pm, but I did get £85.85 tcb and 12 months £7.99 pm Netflix offer added. So effectively £4.85pm for 20GB data, utld mins and texts.

I managed to get a new line for £16.49 for the 16GB Data unlimited calls and text after mentioning the BT deal. It's worth noting that the BT plan DOES NOT come with the extra speed 4G out of the box and that it costs £4 extra a month. For comparison purposes the equivalent package at BT would be £24 with slightly more data but WITHOUT the ability to use your data for tethering.

Or there's this deal hotukdeals.com/dea…929 which is £9.50 after cashback for the following
12 months
8GB 4G UK Data
unlimited UK minutes
unlimited UK texts
2GB inclusive roaming data
unlimited inclusive roaming minutes and texts
2 months' unlimited UK data
12-month entertainment pack (Spotify, NowTV Entertainment or BT Sports Mobile TV)

It does require an outlay of £22.95 per month and claiming cashback from mobiles.co.uk at regular specified intervals. I appreciate that will not be for everyone though. Oh and there's £5 back through Quidco.

I'm in Bedfordshire and I have to say the coverage on ee is better than any other network. I get 4g I'd say 60% of the time and colleagues on o2 for example barely get 3g outside the town centre. I wouldn't move to another network purely for the superior coverage on ee/bt

So i guess it says 4G on the screen and gives 5-6 signal bars, but what's the performance like?

Never had any issues, I've done a few speed tests and it's been up to 55mb in the past. That was near London (Cheshunt) though. I'll do some tests today and try getting back with some screenshots.

I assume that you have travelled to every part of the UK to find this out?

This offer was on HUKD a few months ago and managed to grab for £16.49. Still worth £19.99.

I live in Devon and the 4G/signal is fine no issues here.

Nope nope no no no. Do you understand the difference between 8GB & 20GB? & the coverage & speed? Please save that deal for those who still 'surf the Internet'.

I live 200 miles north of London. They do actually have good coverage. In some areas I can get up to 67Mb. I mostly average 40-50Mb, needless to say - it's more than enough.

Pmsl!

Thank you for this deal just phoned up right there and got it!

Seems asking for your PAC code and wating for the obligatory call back offering a deal is the way to go .....my contract is up July 24 so i will be ringing June 23 to request my PAC and to see if they offer the above deal as i currently pay £22 for 2gb , unlimited texts n calls .

You said you were offered a 2nd SIM at a reduced price, is that also UL/UL/20GB?

5-6 signal bars. Does any phone do that these days? Back in the days of ETACS maybe oO

That would share that data on a separate number.

Also - just to clarify. Do not just request a PAC code and wait.....follow the options for requesting a PAC code that will take you to the retentions team.....Just be straight with them and ask for the BT deal....No need to wait for a call back..

You do know that signal bars don't actually represent the signal strength right? No, no you don't. The signal bars don't actually represent signal strength & are company contrived. They're a bit of a con. You either are connected or you arent.

Incorrect. They may bare little relation to the power strength of your coverage. Try standing directly under a cell site and see how much relation they have to service. Quality of service can vary and what your phone display shows, gives a very rough idea.

​Join them on their 30 day equivalent (£17.99) per month then after 30 days ring up Customer Services, ask for your PAC code, threaten to leave, citing the best 30 day 1GB deal on the open market and they'll match...

Looking forward to my contract with them ending this year so I can negotiate something like this. At this price you're literally paying half of what I am per month for the same allowance.
