Well at least to new customers. Following on from the discontinuation of handset deals, SIMO has now also been withdrawn. Cheapest EE deal seems to be £9pm month as opposed to the £7 that was available on BT, albeit with more data.
Cheapest deal including the Sport app is now £28 instead of £15.
All contracts now 24 months instead of 12. 😞
I noticed that earlier, could they make it any less attractive to new customers?
@stereohaven I think that's the point. Make it unattractive and push to EE. BT Retail will be rebranded to EE in a few years anyway.
Tbh I was nudged to EE and I got a really good deal... Pixel6a, £10 up front, no speed caps, unlimited minutes and texts, 15GB doubled for having Halo £24.95 per month + 10% discount for having BT Broadband...
I understand the transfer to EE as a new brand, I just meant that 10 GB of data for £9 a month on a 2 year contract with built in price rises is perhaps not that attractive to potential new customers.
So if that is the intention, it’s definitely a winner! 😁
Unless you are adamant you need to use the EE network, the same money gets you 15 - 50GB currently on a 30 day SIM only contract from other providers.
It's a real shame that BT are not continuing, less competion in the market and EE must spend a fortune on advertising, that we seem to be paying for with less choice. I always feel its better and cheaper to buy the phone unless you love samsung or apple. I bought the pixel 6a for 240 with trade in and have a family sim for 11.50 mnth with 30gb data and unlimited calls and texts. contract ends April 2023. Will now have to shop around it wont be with EE though.
Terrible decision in my opinion, (although clearly i am looking at it from my own pocket) the nearest EE offering to our family SIMs costs £40.50 where as our Family SIMs cost £28.41, a £145 a year increase is a big enough incentive to look at the other networks that's for sure.
