What is 4GEE Max? EE’s new handset plans explained

UK carrier EE just rolled out a new range of plans to go along with select handsets, offering more options that include their fastest mobile data speeds, EU roaming benefits and more.

What is 4GEE Max?

As of August 17th 2016, EE has restructured its handset tariffs to make it easier for customers to choose between them and what they each offer.

EE plans are now divided into three tiers; entry-level 4GEE Essential plans, standard 4GEE plans and the new 4GEE Max plans, which include the largest data allowances and fastest 4G speeds.

What’s included in the 4GEE Max tariffs?

Like the majority of EE’s existing plans, customers who sign up for a new 4GEE Max plan will receive unlimited calls and texts along with their monthly data allowance. Plans start with 3GB of data a month and go all the way up to 40GB of data a month.

4GEE Max plans also come with additional perks in the form of the fastest 4G data speeds in the UK, access to the BT Sport app for the duration of your contract and ‘Roam like Home’ European roaming at no extra cost.

How much and how long are 4GEE Max tariffs?

All 4GEE Max plans last 24 months, with prices starting at £25.99 a month (includes 3GB of data), moving up to £45.99 a month for the top tariff which includes 40GB of data.

What about the 4GEE Essential and 4GEE plans?

If the 4GEE Max plans sound a little like overkill for your needs, EE’s other handset plans might be more suitable. Both the 4GEE Essential plans and 4GEE plans operate on a 24-month contract and include unlimited texts.

The 4GEE Essential tariffs start at £16.99 a month with a handset and support 4G download speeds up to 20 Mbps, along with six months inclusive access to the BT Sport app, but they don’t include any European roaming allowances.
