Why are EE's January Sale phone deals are worth the hype?

As previously stated, when it comes to competitive pricing, EE isn't always the best. There are plenty of other retailers out there that offer more bang for your buck. However, EE's reputation precedes itself as the UK's biggest network.

Winning the UK's best network for seven year's in a row, EE has also been awarded the title of the UK's no.1 5G network. In short, then, EE offers a strong coverage nationwide, giving customers the reassurance that, whilst they may pay more here than elsewhere, they'll get the very best service. 

Of course, there are plenty of other reasons shopping directly at EE is a good choice, especially during the January Sales. With huge money off savings across a variety of handsets, you can also benefit from free add-ons to your package depending on the kind of plan you go for. Get six months of Apple Music for free. For sporting fans, why not opt for three months of BT Sports on EE? The same goes for Prime Video or Britbox depending on the kind of extra content you're after.

Leading the way for 5G in the UK, you can benefit from the speediest generation of mobile connectivity in 112 cities and towns, too.
