EE Is Giving NHS Staff Free Unlimited Data For Six Months
EE has announced it is giving all NHS customers free unlimited data for the next six months.
The phone giant says it's trying to help frontline workers stay connected and give them 'one less thing to worry about' during the coronavirus pandemic.
Announcing the offer, Marc Allera, CEO of BT's Consumer Division, wanted to thank those risking their lives for the country.
He said: "We hope this gives NHS staff one less thing to worry about.
"They can keep in touch with friends and family and use the internet without worrying about using up their data.
"Along with the discount we already provide, this is a thank you from all of us at EE to those in the NHS that are working so hard for us all."
In order to claim the offer, customers just need to register online using their NHS email address.

Once that has been sent, they will receive a text to confirm that unlimited data has been added to their account.
This comes after the UK government announced last month that NHS staff would no longer have to pay to park at hospitals during the outbreak.
Announcing the news, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: "Our NHS is facing an unprecedented challenge, and I will do everything I can to ensure our dedicated staff have whatever they need during this unprecedented time.
"So we will provide free car parking for our NHS staff who are going above and beyond every day in hospitals across England.
"My enormous gratitude goes out to the many NHS Trusts and other organisations already providing free car parking and I urge other Trusts to do the same with our backing."
Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, said: "Our NHS staff and social care workers are working round the clock to save lives and should not have to worry about the cost or time restrictions of parking, which is why I've agreed with the Local Government Association and councils in England to provide free car parking on council owned on-street spaces and car parks.
"By working together, we are able to support these heroes as they play a front line role in our national effort to tackle the coronavirus crisis."
