BT & EE Customers Get BBC Bitesize with Free Data Charges

Education is important even amid a pandemic. Kids must continue with their education despite limited resources. As part of its Lockdown Learning support scheme, BT is in partnership with the BBC to give customers access to free educational content this month of January.

The agreement between BT and BBC indicates that customers will have a zero-rating experience with BBC Bitesize. This means that customers of BT can access the contents in BBC Bitesize without using their data allowance.

BBC Bitesize offers interactive and educational content. There will be lessons in different curriculum subjects that will aid and support teachers, parents, and students. Users can access content for primary and secondary pupils.

As face-to-face learning is not available due to the lockdown, students are studying online. It creates a huge adjustment not just to the students but to the teachers and parents as well. With the help of BBC Bitesize, there will be additional resources for students to use.
