If your current EE smartphone bill is making you wince then it might be time to look at a SIM-only plan. These deals are always far cheaper than a standard smartphone contract as the monthly fee only includes data, minutes and texts and not anything for the handset itself.
As long as you own your current iPhone or Android device then going SIM-only is a great way of saving money and EE has some tempting offers right now that include plenty of data at a very reasonable price. Here’s our pick of the best EE SIM-only deals
Best EE SIM – big data on a budget
£20 per month – 24-month plan • SEE THE DEAL HERE
DATA: 150GB per month
If you want loads of data at a bargain price then EE currently has a SIM that costs just £20 per month but includes a whopping 150GB of data per month. That’s enough to download 37 full HD movies or stream over 140 hours of content on Netflix or Disney+
This SIM also includes unlimited calls and texts plus it’s fully compatible with the latest 5G data speeds allowing you to whizz files to your phone at speeds in excess of 300Mbps.
If you do run out during the month, EE now lets all users stay connected until their monthly data renews.
This service only offers speeds of 0.5Mbps so you can’t stream or download files but it’s fast enough to check out Google Maps and send messages via WhatsApp.

150GB not quite enough? Don’t panic as EE also has 200GB of 5G monthly data for £28 per month. Along with getting an extra 50GB to munch through each month, this plan also includes a Smart Benefit.

WHY CHOOSE EE?
EE is one of the UK’s best-known networks and has won numerous awards for its speed and reliability.
The firm is also leading the way with the latest 5G technology with it hoped that 50 percent of the UK will be able to access this blistering quick service by 2023.
The firm also recently boosted its 4G network with more costal areas now getting a much better signal.
WHAT IS 5G?
5G is the next generation of mobile network that is rolling out across the UK. This new technology allows anyone with a 5G-ready smartphone, such as the iPhone 13 or Galaxy S21, to access the web at speeds in excess of 300Mbps when away from fixed-line broadband.
At that rate, you could download a full HD movie in around three minutes.
Along with being quicker it also allows more devices to get a faster connection at the same time which means your speeds shouldn’t grind to halt at busy train stations or people-packed football stadiums.
