4GEE data-only SIM upgrade

I am just coming to the end of my initial 12-month 4GEE contract.  For that year, I have been paying for the moden and (limited) data.

 

Now that I have paid for the modem, I am looking for a data-only sim upgrade that offers more data for less money.

 

If I stick with EE's 4GEE upgrade option, I am offered 15GB for £23 per month.

 

However, if I took the mobile phone data-only sim option, I could get 20GB for £22 per month.

 

So, why should I not just put a mobile SIM in my 4GEE modem?

No reason at all, lol yes, yet more stupid EE pricing!

 

Any EE SIM will work in any EE device. The only thing is you may get slower 4G with the handset plan as all EE handset SIM only plans are only upto 60Mbps 4G speeds where as Data only SIM plans are not 4G speed capped.

Re: 4GEE data-only SIM upgrade

Well - all worked perfectly!

I explained what I wanted to the charming lady in the EE shop and she agreed with me.

 

So, I cancelled my existing 12-month contract and took out a new data-only SIM contract giving me 20GB (twice my original data) for £19.80 (plus VAT) (15% less).  The deal was described as for mobiles only but, as she said and the community replies said, the multi-SIMs fit any device.

 

Thanks
