U.K. carrier EE has announced new international calling packs and add-ons that allow customers to call friends and family in other countries without incurring big charges. Those who sign up to one of the new packs before December 9 will have their allowance increased by 50% each month.
The new packs are called International and International Extra, and they’re priced at £10 (approx. $15.35) and £20 (approx. $30.96) per month respectively. International provides 1,000 minutes to up to five numbers in 50 countries, while International Extra provides 500 minutes to five numbers in 100 countries.
If you have family or friends who live abroad, these packs allow you to call them frequently without having to worry about a large bill at the end of the month. So long as you don’t go over your allowance, you can be sure you’ll never pay more than £10 or £20 extra, depending on which pack you choose.
If you sign up to one of these plans before December 9, EE will increase your allowance by 50% every month. So those on the International plan will get 1,500 minutes, and those on the International Extra plan will get 750 minutes. But there is one caveat.
These plans apply only to those taking out a new EE contract. If you already have an EE contract and you want to add an international calling pack before it ends, then unfortunately — and for no good reason — you’ll get much smaller allowances.
Those who sign up to International “add-on” mid-contract will get only 500 minutes for £10 a month, and those who sign up to International Extra will get only 250 minutes for £20.
