The firm said the unexpected rise in its costs was caused by the pandemic and a dramatic rise in internet use over the last year as people were forced to work from home to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
BT joins other companies including supermarkets Sainsbury and Lidl in rewarding their staff for working during the pandemic.
BT will remove mobile data charges for an online learning hub as internet companies are forced to work to stop unequal access to the internet. Internet companies are traditionally discouraged from offering preferential treatment to certain websites, under the principle of net neutrality. The move will mean customers on EE, BT Mobile and Plusnet Mobile will have free, unlimited access to the Oak National Academy and its educational content.
