    My £5 data runs out 5th, I'm planning on buying 6 months for £20. That gives me 6 months to look for a decent deal elsewhere.

    Not going to happen. Would prefer to move to Three.

    it appears to depend on the price plan you're on. some appear to remain at £20 per six months.

    http://ee.co.uk/content/dam/ee-help/Help-PDFs/Business-PDFs/TM-PAYG-NONSTDMIX-280416%20v3.3.pdf

    look at page 16.

    Boosters available to customers on price plans: Everyday plan, Talk plan,
    Text plan, International plan or BlackBerry® plan

    and then page 18

    Talk Tariff, Mates Rates,
    Mates Rates International, Text Appeal, Everyone, Standard, Relax,
    Relax with Allowances Talk & Text

    Unless I'm mistaken, there's only the 2nd set of plans which get the increases.

    Alas, the price guide that's linked to the official T-Mobile press release on this (at http://ee.co.uk/help/add-ons-benefits-and-plans/price-plans-and-costs/t-mobile-price-plans/t-mobile-pay-as-you-go-price-increase) would indicate that is not the case.

    Also, it appears that the "fair use" policy is limited to 500 Mb per month...

    there is a way round the increase. you can topup on some plans by £15 a month and get "free" internet the following month.
