Calls to Kenya from UK for 4p with new EE plan

New EE calling plan offers cheap calls to Kenya

British mobile network operator EE have announced a new contract and SIM-only international calling pack and add-on for customers who need to contact family and friends residing in 100 countries outside of the UK, including Kenya.

The calling plan of interest to UK customers wanting to keep in touch with Kenya is International Extra. This gives you 500 minutes to up to five numbers in 100 countries for £20 per month.

Therefore, if you use all your pad for minutes, this means that calls to Kenya will only cost you 4p per minute, although not maximising you allowance will obviously mean that price increases.

EE International Calling Extra

The pack is ideal for those who have a select few contacts to keep in touch with and they will be available to new and upgrading customers within the first three months of their EE plan. Be aware though that there is also a minimum length of time you’ll be required to have these extras.

As an added sweetener to customers, if you take out this new pack before 9 December, you will get an additional 50% allowance every month which increases the allowance up to 750 minutes  per month.

Alternatively, if you want to add the International Extra calling add-on to your plan mid-contract, you’ll have to put up with lower allowances of 250 minutes to up to five numbers in 100 countries for £20 /month.

Obviously, it would be better to look into these packs at the start of your plan to get the most out of it.

The full list of countries you can call using the International Extra plan are:

Andorra, Angola, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Faroe Islands, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Guadeloupe, Guam, Guatemala, Guernsey, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Jordan, Kenya, Korea (Republic of), Kuwait, Luxembourg, Macao, Malaysia, Malta, Martinique, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Reunion, Romania, Russia, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Syrian Arab Republic, Thailand, Tonga, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay, USA, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands (U.S.) and Zambia.


  1. That’s not a bad deal, but it limits how many people you can ring. Personally, although cost per minute may be higher, I think the O2 World Chat app is much better and well worth checking out if you’re in the UK and want to ring any country overseas. Alternatively, just use one of the online call services available like Google Hangouts, iMessage chat, WhatsApp chat, Viber, BBM voice or Facebook (other options are available).
