Benefits of a BT Family SIM

A BT Mobile Family SIM only needs one person in the household or family to join; the rest of the members can simply link to the family SIM plan and they will get a discount on their individual SIM only plan.

University students who are living in a house together can join a BT Mobile Family SIM and save money with this discounted SIM only tariff. Family SIMs allow up to 5 people to link to a SIM only family plan.

Family SIMs offer free access to more than 5 million UK Wi-Fi hotspots, so members can take advantage of all the Wi-Fi hotspots and save your data allowance. With BT Mobile Family SIMs customers are still eligible for BT Mobile roaming, which allows you to travel to 47 destinations abroad and use your BT mobile SIM plan like you were at home.

However, one of the coolest benefits that BT Family SIMs offer is that clients will get free BT Sport on their mobiles, which allows them to keep up to date with the latest sporting events.

BT Mobile Family SIMs offer a reasonable price, so BT customers don't have a headache of paying too much money for a Family SIM; for example, a 20GB unlimited minutes and texts with all the benefits is only £50.00, which is a really good price.

Types of BT Mobile Family SIM plan

BT Mobile Family SIMs offers a standard 12month contract, which is very normal for a Family SIM in the UK. However, BT Mobile now offers the opportunity for BT customers to create their own BT Family SIM.

You can discuss with your family or within the household you live in and see how many GB you will need for a Family SIM and how many SIMs do you want to add.

Once you and your family solve this, then enter the information required into the 'BT Build Your Family SIM' tool and you will get a fixed price for a 12month contract.

This deal automatically offers unlimited minutes and texts, so you don't have to worry about choosing a text or minutes limit. This is a good feature to have for a Family SIM because it is difficult to determine how much data a family or household needs.

Does BT Family SIM offer 5G network?

BT Mobile does offer 5G network but customers must first have a smartphone that is capable of acquiring 5G data technology and be in an area or coverage of 5G network. Unfortunately, BT 5G does not cover a lot of the UK, as it is still new, but by the end of 2020 there will be more cities and towns that will have 5G coverage.

In Summary

This is a great option for members looking to save money on deals but still be able to get a quality SIM only plan. Families with teenagers can benefit from this by having a one-person control over everyone's SIM plans to minimise the cost.
