BT top-up allows you to add extra minutes and data to your BT plans when you exhaust the inclusive minutes. This article explores BT top-up, including how to top up your BT number, data and dongles. We hope that you find this article useful.

What is a BT top-up?

BT top-up allows you to add extra data and minutes to your BT plans as one-off purchases. To top up your BT plans, you must use the BT add-ons. BT add-ons are value-added services that let you enhance your TV subscription and purchase extra minutes, data, or speed. The main advantage of BT add-ons is that you can add more minutes, speed, or data without changing plans.

It is important to note that BT top-up is useful to augment your data allowance if you need extra data as a temporal measure. If you constantly need to use more data than your monthly allowance, upgrading to a higher plan is wiser.

There are several broadband and mobile packages to choose from:
