Increased Data Allowance

Increased Data Allowance for those in need

the government, alongside many of the mobile operators, have introduced a scheme which 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.

we are able to request mobile data increases for young people who meet all 3 of these criteria:

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

For more information about this scheme, please visit:

If you believe you are eligible to have increased data, please fill in the form below and we will make the application on your behalf.

All applicants will need to accept the Privacy Policy outlined on the Government's website.
