Apple and UK mobile phone giant EE have stuck a deal to offer 6 months of Apple music free to new or upgrading users to the EE mobile network. People familiar with the matter have reported that the CEO of EE flew out to Cupertino to get the deal done.
At the time of writing an EE store employee, who for obvious reasons wanted to anonymous, reported that front line staff are already being briefed on the deal which will be completely seperate from Apple’s 3 month trial.
The 6 months free Apple music offer is due to roll out soon and what better timing with the Apple Music Festival at the RoundHouse London coming up on September 18 – 30.
6 months of Apple free Apple music dwarfs any free trail offeres from rivals Spotify and Pandora who offer free premium service trails for up to 60 days if you Google around and with EE having pretty decent 4G coverage and speeds around the UK buffering shouldn’t be too much of an issue but of course keep an eye on your data limits.
This deal follows hot on another deal where customers can get 6 months free BT sport.

Big news for 4G iPhone users in the uk. Three UK plans to separate itself from its competitors by charging £12 (~$19) per month on a rolling one-month contract. 4g will be part of their standard service and not a seperate offering like EE, Orange and T-mobile
EE, Everything Everywhere, the first 4g Network in the UK has now comes to 9 more towns and cities. This makes a total of 27 towns and cities with 4g coverage.
Well if you missed all the news that Apple let slip on their website, the iPhone 5 is now officially with us. It’s got everything the 4S has — but thinner, lighter, better, and smaller. This article is scattered to say the least so bear with me whilst I try to collate the masses of information from the Apple 2012 Announcement.
Just in case you were wondering if the iPhone 5 will work with EE, yes it will. Announced just a few moments ago at the Apple keynote the iPhone 5 will be released in the following countries supporting LTE 4g
More details are spilling out on the official day that the UK get’s it’s very of 4G network. Four UK cities – London, Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff – had their 4G signals switched on today with another 12 ready to offer. Also announced are the official handsets which are ready for launch day
but no mention of the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 is officially supported and will be ready for EE launch.
EE will also launch superfast 4G mobile and fixed-line fibre broadband services in the coming weeks. It will also offer standard broadband via ADSL in non-fibre areas.
Everything Everywhere which is made up of Orange and T-mobile has announced a new 4g network for the UK to be called EE. Rolling out 4G to 16 cities covering a third of the UK by Christmas.
In the last 24 hours there has been a lot of press around both the Everything Everywhere brands (Orange and T-Mobile) regarding 4G.
Everything Everywhere value their affiliates and would like to send this official communication confirming that they are delighted at Ofcom’s decision and they look forward to launching 4G soon.
The company will also be launching a new third brand which will sit alongside Orange and T-Mobile.
You couldn’t help but notice that the UK will start to get 4g rollout this year as early as september thanks to Everything Everywhere but now UK network operator Three (who won the best value sim for your iPad / iPhone) are also joining the party. Three is a network that’s more aimed at Data so it shouldn’t be surprising they’ve joined the 4g party.
