British carrier EE today announced it is extending its free six-month Apple Music subscription offer to all new and existing iPhone and Android smartphone customers with a pay monthly plan. SIM-only customers are also eligible.

EE apple music
The offer begins Wednesday, July 19, and customers will be able to register for the deal with a short-code to be revealed next week.

EE said any data consumed by Apple Music will be zero-rated, meaning it will not count against a customer's data allotment. After six months, customers will automatically be charged £9.99 per month for Apple Music until they cancel.

I've learned things recently with the net neutrality rules. Although this is a very cool offering from EE to go with Apple music, it can really hurt innovation in the arena when competitors basically have to pay for bandwidth. Interesting turn of events for me, as I saw these partnerships as nothing but good in the past.

Shouldn't that be 'All bits are created equally'??
No, you are confusing adverb usage that would describe "how" the bits were created and modify the verb "create," with the correct usage of an adjective, "equal" which modifies/describes the noun "bits."

As an existing Music subscriber, I assume I'd have to cancel it and re-subscribe through whatever portal EE and Apple will have made, or would it be done by a voucher code that gets redeemed against my Apple ID?
The former option.

True, unfortunately EE and O2 are the only networks in the UK that support Visual Voicemail. EE were one of the earliest networks (first even?) to support WiFi calling and will probably be early adopters of future iPhone tech when released. If other networks (or VMNOs) supported visual voicemail etc I'd be happy to switch, until then it's EE for me as their network is best where I live.
I believe Vodafone now support VV and WiFi Calling too. Not for corporate contracts though.
