What do the plans offer? 

The plans offer monthly data allowances ranging from 1GB to unlimited, as well as EE’s Data Gifting feature, allowing users to move unused data to someone else in their family.

The Stay Connected Data plan activates when someone has used their monthly allowance and enables them to still send and receive messages.
