What are BT add-ons for?
BT add-ons are value-added services that allow you to buy extra minutes, data or speed and upgrade your TV subscription. The major benefit of BT add-ons is that it does not require switching to another package; you can add extra minutes, speed or data.
BT add-ons: get extra data and minutes.
Each BT data or call plan has a set allowance, and going over it can be expensive. One way to save money on data and call subscriptions is to switch to a plan that takes care of your needs. However, ordering a BT data add-on or BT mobile add-on is wiser if you need extra data and minutes as a temporary solution.
BT add-ons: mobile data
With the BT mobile data add-on, you can purchase extra BT mobile data. This add-on is a one-off purchase and resets every month's end. You can also purchase extra speed temporarily: the BT mobile extra speed 4G add-on allows you to double the maximum speed of your mobile data without switching plans.

It is important to note that since all of these add-ons are video on demand only, you won't get any additional channels, but there are many more things to watch on the BT Player.
BT add-ons for roaming
When travelling within the EU, BT roam-like home service allows you to use your UK calls, data and text within forty-seven countries without extra roaming charges. However, when travelling outside these forty-seven countries, you can use the BT roaming add-on (travel pass) to keep costs down.
At £6 daily, you get 500MB roaming in the following countries:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- United Arab Emirates
- United States
How to order BT roaming add on
You can order a travel data pass to your account online at anytime. However, you can also order your roaming add-on by sending an SMS.
When you begin using data in a country covered by BT add-ons, BT will SMS you to let you know. To purchase the add-on, text back 500 and they'll text you back once it has been added to your account. Although it normally only takes ten minutes, this process can take up to thirty.
BT add-ons for international calls.
Customers of BT calling plans have access to the comprehensive international calls add-on option, International Freedom. You can make calls to fixed lines in 36 foreign countries (as well as to mobiles in five of these countries) for a monthly charge of £9.82. (subject to a fair usage policy).
In addition, International Freedom provides affordable travel to 199 additional international locations.
