BT and EE offer free mobile data to disadvantaged families 

BT & EE have partnered with the Department of Education to give 20GB of free extra mobile data per month to disadvantaged families.

Available until the end of this academic year (July 2021), the free extra mobile data on EE is accessed through children’s schools, and allows eligible families to access whichever educational resources are needed whilst face-to-face teaching is paused. These families are also eligible for BT Basic, a £10 per month fixed broadband service.

Last February, BT removed caps on all its broadband packages so every customer has unlimited data to help customers working, learning or self-isolating at home. BT has also been offering BT WiFi vouchers for free access since last June. Previously distributed through the Department of Education, BT will be offering these direct to families in the near future.
