If I upgraded my data usage today, is that extra data immediately available or will it not take effect until my next invoice date?

Welcome to the EE Community,
The new plan would be available immediately.

@chriseglington The new tariff would start on the next cycle date. You can not change plan mid billing cycle.

Dai, getting conflicting replies you say it would be available immediately others saying once it's been completed/at the beginning of next billing cycle?
30-12-2018 11:28 AM
@chriseglington Are you in your upgrade period?
30-12-2018 11:30 AM
@Christopher_G can you confirm what I have told the OP is correct thanks.

It will start immediately, pro-rated for the rest of the billing cycle, as will the cost.

@David I believe it’s not a upgrade but a increase in data on the account. That’s why I need to know if @chriseglington is in there upgrade period. I believe it’s a data increase on the account and that would start next billing cycle.
The question is if I upgrade my data usage not if I upgrade my tariff.

Thank you for all your replies, although it's called an upgrade it's actually an increase in data so I believe any increase will not take place until the beginning of the next billing period? So on that basis I'm guessing I will need to be sparing on my data usage as buying the extra data out of contract will be very expensive.

Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us on the Community today.
If you was to upgrade your plan to either a SIMO (SIM Only) or phone contract, your new price plan will take effect when your phone is dispatched.
If you are changing your price plan (to increase your allowances or to decrease your allowances after your minimum term), your price plan can take effect immediately but this depends on how the customer service adviser processes your price plan change. There are two ways, immediate effect or on your next billing cycle (the day your allowances refresh). The reason most customer service advisers opt for the next billing cycle is to help minimise confusion with pro-rata charges. However, if you are in need of that data, you can contact customer service by dialing 150 from your EE phone and asking them to process that price plan change with immediate effect.
Please be aware, consumer customers can only change their price plan once every 30 days.
