Press Release   •  Jun 01, 2016 10:47 BST

BT is today launching new pay monthly mobile phone contracts with the latest phones from the big brands, starting from just £20 a month for BT broadband households, in a move that will expand its presence in the consumer mobile market.

Only available direct from BT, the new pay monthly deals offer:

  • The latest smartphones from all the big brands with a £5 a month discount for BT broadband households
  • A choice of three simple plans offering data allowances of 500MB, 2GB or 15GB
  • An exceptional combination of 4G on the UK's biggest network with unlimited access to the most extensive wi-fi coverage via more than five million BT Wi-fi hotspots
  • Customers can avoid nasty surprise bills with monthly spend caps and usage alerts
  • The BT Mobile app lets customers keep tabs on what allowances they are using and what they have got left
  • All BT Mobile SIMs now allow tethering for Android users and it will soon be enabled for Apple users
  • Parental controls allow parents to block inappropriate content and choose between Strict and Light filters

Like BT’s SIM-only offering, the company has kept its monthly plans simple, with just three to choose from:

  • Plan 1: 400 minutes, unlimited texts, 500MB data
  • Plan 2: 1,000 minutes, unlimited texts, 2GB data
  • Plan 3: Unlimited minutes, unlimited texts,15GB data

Anyone who signs up before 7th July 2016 can take advantage of some great value special offers, for example:

  • The award-winning Samsung Galaxy S6 from only £16 a month for the first three months – a saving of £20 a month
  • The Samsung Galaxy A3 - half price for the first six months from just £10 a month
  • Save £15 a month on the Apple iPhone 6 – from just £21 a month for the first three months

John Petter, chief executive of BT Consumer, said: “Just over a year ago we launched some of the UK’s best value SIM-only offers from just £5 a month. Now we’re going one step further with our fantastic value pay monthly mobile phone contracts with extra savings for loyal BT broadband customers.

“We’re offering great deals on great phones, 4G on the UK's biggest network with unlimited access to the most extensive wi-fi coverage via more than five million BT Wi-fi hotspots. Plus until 7th July you can get discounts of up to 50 per cent for six months.”

Last year BT entered the market with three 4G SIM-only deals offering bundles of 4G data, minutes and texts for as little as £5 a month for BT broadband customers. This next step for BT Mobile will be supported by a nationwide advertising campaign on TV, cinema, radio, and posters, digital and social media.
