EE increases prices by 3.3pc for 3G contract customers


Operator also announces ‘price fixing’ service which will cost customers up to £2 per month

EE is set to increase prices by 3.3 per cent for its pay monthly customers on Orange and T-Mobile tariffs.

According to the operator the average bill will rise by 70p per month for customers on its 3G plans. Orange customers will have prices raised from April 10 and T-Mobile customers from May 9, with no extra changes for those on 4G plans.

Orange and T-Mobile customers are also being offered a price fixing service which will protect them from any future rises, although the service will cost a fee of between 50p and £2 per month.

Paying the monthly price fixing cost will mean in-contract fees will be frozen for the duration of the contract. It will cost 50p for those paying below £14.99 monthly, £1 for tariffs between £15 and £24.99, £1.50 for customers paying £25 to £34.99 and £2 for anyone paying over £35.

Customers on 4GEE  are not eligible for the deal.

A spokesperson for EE said: “As a result of rising business costs, we are having to increase the price of some Orange and T-Mobile monthly plans. Typically the increase will be 70p a month. At the same time, we have listened to our customers and understand that some would like the option of fixing the price of their monthly plan. That’s why we are also launching a “Fix Your Monthly Plan” option – the first of its kind in the industry.

“We know prices rises are never great news, but we always aim to offer great value to our customers as well as the best service on the UK’s biggest network.”
