BT has just made all my calls from my landline to mobile phones free of charge.  :D
It's more than twice what I'm currently paying EE and will have started the clock on a new 12 or 24 months contract. (Note that the contract allows them to increase the price by the RPI each year, but not reduce it if RPI drops. Sneaky trick to make staying on after contract expires be less appealing.)

There's no evidence that EE wouldn't have offered such a deal at this time anyway, lockdown or no lockdown. I've been keeping track of their prices/plans for a while. Their magic deal of the month usually works out around the £25/month figure.
Im on a 30 day rolling now as its well over the end of contract period, I'm happy with what I get. and I like streaming music to my home speakers for free. I would never lock myself into a new 12/24 month contract let alone buy a phone off EE. O2 have a great 100GB tariff but without the extras, for £20 Sim only but they also put the price up by RPI too. I find it better to buy a phone and look for sim only deals that suit your needs. When lockdown is over I'll hopefully be visiting my partner in Cedar Rapids and then the use of my data in the USA is really useful, she comes over here twice a year and we are planning on my settling and marrying her over there, but lock down has halted that for now. Americans get rubbish internet but great unlimited data packages cheaply.

That probably costs them the back end of diddly squat.

i am still looking for a reliable simple backup and restore software  :-\ . I have tried Acronis not a happy bunny. Anyone experience of AOME? Is the paid version over the free worth the expenditure?

Given that we are not supposed to be going out, I'm not sure why anybody would want a huge data allowance for their phone at the moment.  I use mine all the time but it's connected to my home Wi-Fi, so I barely touch my data allowance with O2.

I picked up a nice special offer sim only package from EE its one of their smart sims, I get 60GB monthly, unlimited texts and calls and swappable benefits so I can have BT sports, a gamer pass, Music Data pass which included Apple music, amazon prime video, a video data pass or the ability to roam with data all over the world (not so useful right now) the data passes mean i can stream without touching the 60GB. Also I get their fastest connection rate which where I live is 120Mbps down and 30Mbos up on 4G (5G will take ages to get here) and all for £25 a month. I buy my phones outright from Apple, so its a good deal for my needs.

That article is over three weeks old and is more speculation than fact. EE has definitely not offered extra anything to ordinary (non NHS) customers.
