Coronavirus: Keeping your business connected

Last updated: 05/11/2020

We're here to support your business through the coronavirus pandemic. Our award-winning network will keep you working and we’ve new ways to help you quickly get in touch. We’ve also got a range of offers and free services to help you. 

The network to keep you connected

Our mobile network can comfortably support the extra calls that people are making to keep in touch with colleagues, friends and family. And if data usage does increase, we’ve got the capacity to handle that. We’ve also started extra monitoring on all areas across our network.

Our broadband network has a large amount of capacity to keep you connected at all times - even with the massive increase in homeworking that’s being experienced.

101 calls to the police now free

We no longer charge EE customers for calls to the 101 non-emergency police service.

Free 101 calls support the 999 emergency service – and help manage the impact caused by the coronavirus outbreak. We fully support the Home Office request for a free service, and we’ve taken action as quickly as possible.

How we can help you quickly

To keep everyone safe, our agents are currently working from home. Our lines are open as normal, but you may hear some background noise.

Looking to join EE or stay with us?

You can shop and upgrade online as usual.

If you text SUPPORT to 150 we’ll send you a handy guide on how to self-serve our most common queries using the My EE app

For quick answers visit Help or use CHAT to contact our service teams using Live Chat or WhatsApp. Support is also available from the My EE community.

Our retail stores

Following the recent government announcement, we’re closing all of our retail stores to keep you and our staff safe. They’ll remain closed until the government announce that we can safely re-open. Due to this our lines are going to be very busy at the moment so your wait time may be longer than usual.

You can still shop and upgrade online or via chat as usual.

Delivery vans

Delivery with a difference

We’re continuing deliveries as normal with extremely good service levels right across our network. We’ll still send your order within 24 hours where possible, but some orders may take a little longer.

To avoid unnecessary contact, we’re no longer asking customers to sign our handheld units. Instead our drivers will sign it on their behalf. We’ll record the name of the person receiving delivery and a ‘Delivered on Authority’ message in the signature section of the unit.

You’ll still be able to fully track and trace your order for complete visibility of all your parcels.

Bills and payments

We recognise the financial impact that coronavirus is having across the UK, and our team will be able to help you with any concerns you have about your EE Business bill.

We want to support you as best as we can, but to allow us to focus on the customers who need help urgently, we ask that you only contact us after your latest bill has been issued and you have a balance on your account. It is at this point that our team will be able to put support in place.
