Do you need an increase of data on your mobile device?


This scheme temporarily increases data allowances for mobile phone users on certain networks. This is so that children and young people can access remote education if their face-to-face education is disrupted.

Who can get help

Schools, trusts and local authorities can request mobile data increases for children and young people who:

  • do not have fixed broadband at home
  • cannot afford additional data for their devices
  • are experiencing disruption to their face-to-face education

Children with access to a mobile phone on one of the following networks might be able to benefit:

  • Three
  • Smarty
  • Virgin Mobile
  • EE
  • Tesco Mobile
  • Sky Mobile

Other providers may join the scheme at a later stage.

If you wish to request a mobile data increase, please email the below details to and we will help process this for you:

  • the name, year group of pupil/student
  • the name of the account holder of mobile device
  • the number of the mobile device
  • the mobile network of that device (for example Three)
