Business Extra+ tariff includes unlimited calls and texts to and from the USA, EU and UK, plus daily data in the EU

EE has launched a new range of business tariffs aimed at small and medium-sized businesses looking abroad to drive business.

The EE Business Extra+ plan offers unlimited calls and texts to and from the USA, EU and UK, plus daily data allowance in EU countries.

A survey conducted by YouGov on behalf of the operator found British SMEs expect international trade to drive 25 per cent of their business’s growth over the next five years.

The survey, which took in the views of 1,000 decision makers at UK SMEs, also found 55 per cent are currently planning to trade with the US market, while 82 per cent are currently or planning to trade with Western Europe.

International calls were labelled critical to business by 69 per cent of those trading internationally, while three quarters (75 per cent) said that using mobile devices while abroad for calls, text, email, web and file sharing in the same way they do at home was extremely important when travelling.

EE was recently acquired by Bt in a deal worth £12.5 billion. It’s new business plan includes up to 50GB of data per month in the UK, with 500MB of daily data through the Euro Data pass.

BT director of SME product marketing Lydia Hicks said: “UK SMEs show no signs of holding back on their international business ambitions, so we’ve built our EE Business Extra+ plans to help them stay connected with international customers and partners, whether at home or abroad.

“Unlimited calls and texts to and from clients and partners overseas, plus generous 4G data allowances enable UK SMEs to focus on growing their businesses, rather than worrying about their bill.”
