Last week, EE said its Cash on Tap NFC wallet app would soon work with Tube barriers when they start accepting contactless payments next month. Today, the carrier's announced you don't have to wait to try travelling the NFC way, as Cash on Tap can now be used to pay fares on London buses. The capi

The contactless payment feature on your bank card is ideal for speeding up minor purchases, and soon it'll be able to replace your Oyster, too. London buses have supported contactless payments for some time, and Transport for London (TfL) has today announced that come September 16th, they'll get y

After initially limiting connections to mobile customers, EE is throwing its broadband packages open to everyone. With BT and Virgin Media firmly in its sights, the company has slashed the cost of its internet bundles, allowing customers to sign up for a 17Mbps connection for just £2.50 a mo
