EE has become the latest UK mobile operator to offer free, unlimited data to NHS workers following Vodafone's move a couple of weeks ago. It is offering free data for the next six months.
To take advantage of the offer, NHS workers just need to register online at ee.co.uk/nhs with a valid NHS email address. The offer is open to 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 9th 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 and social media from today.
EE and BT 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.
EE’s parent company BT has also made it possible for BT Sport customers to ask BT to give their monthly subscription credit to the NHS Charities Together for Covid-19 Urgent Appeal. So far, £282,000 has been donated.
“We hope this gives NHS staff one less thing to worry about,” said Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer Division. “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.”
