EE launches UK’s first 36-month tablet plan


Tablets on the three-year plan include the Huawei Media Pad T1, iPad Mini and EE Harrier Tab

EE will be the first network in the UK to offer a 36-month tablet plan to its business customers.

The network claims that this plan “is more cost-efficient for businesses, saving subscribers approximately 25 per cent more per month in comparison to the 24-month plan, as well as providing businesses with “flexible options to meet their business needs.”  Prior to introducing this new 36-month tablet plan, the longest tablet contract EE offered was 24-months. Examples of tablets on the three-year plan include:

  • Huawei Media Pad T1 eight inch or EE Harrier Tab with 2GB of data for £7.50 per month and no upfront cost.
  • iPad Mini 16GB or Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1-inch with 4GB of data for £11 per month with no upfront cost.
  • iPad Air 2 16GB with 12GB of data for £22.50 per month and no upfront cost.

EE said its decision to start the 36-month plan was driven by research it did into the tablet usage of 2,000 UK workers. More than half (52 per cent) believed tablets will replace laptops in the workplace within 10 years. Almost a third (31 per cent) of those surveyed said that workplace laptop usage is also declining, and 24 per cent have transitioned to tablets.

EE director of small business Mike Tomlinson said: “Our research clearly shows that businesses are mobilising their workforces, and that tablets are rapidly becoming the primary device of choice. Sunsail are a great example of a business going one step further with 4GEE tablets from EE and the Canvas smart forms app to become even more productive and efficient.”
