What is happening?

Every year in March, your monthly price plan cost will increase by the rate of RPI (Retail Price Index). RPI is a measure linked to inflation and measures the increase in prices for consumers on average across the country, over the last 12 months.

From 30 March 2017, you will see a 2.5 per cent increase to your monthly price plan on any bills you receive if you joined or upgraded to a pay monthly, SIM Only, 4GEE WiFi/mobile broadband or Business contract after 26 March 2014.

This increase is in line with the RPI, published by the Office for National Statistics on 17 January 2017, and as per clause 7.4 of your terms (or clause 7.1.4 if you joined/upgraded before 11 November 2015) or business terms.

How have you calculated the rate of increase on my plan?

We have used the Retail Price Index (RPI), published on 17 January 2017, which is 2.5 per cent. The increase is calculated by adding 2.5 per cent to the price of your monthly plan. 

What about my discount?

What about my discount?

If you have a discount, this will not change. The price increase is applied to your existing price plan cost and then any discount is applied afterwards. You can log in to My EE to see more information about your price plan.

Can I cancel my contract?

Can I cancel my contract?

If you wish to cancel your contract, you’ll need to pay any cancellation charges that may apply. As stated in your terms, you may cancel your contract without penalty if we increase your monthly plan charge by more than the current rate of RPI. This increase is in line with RPI and therefore cancellation charges may apply.
