Thousands of EE customers are to gain money back from their mobile broadband provider, after it was revealed the firm incorrectly charged VAT on data used abroad.

Customers affected by the error, which concerned data used outside of the European Union between October 2012 and 2014, are set to earn between £2 and £80 each.

Around 0.5 per cent of EE's customer base has been overcharged, and can expect their account to be credited with the money owed.

Those affected have been contacted by EE by text message, and their balances will be automatically updated.

Former EE customers, who no longer have accounts with the firm, need to contact the broadband provider directly in order to receive a refund.

According to EE spokesperson David Nieberg, a configuration error in EE's billing system, made following a system change, led to a small number of customers being overcharged for data.

"This was a mistake, and we are now refunding these charges and contacting affected customers to apologise for the error," he stated.
