A "small" number of EE customers will receive a share of a £1m refund after they were wrongly charged VAT.
EE said customers were used the internet outside of the EU between October 2012 and October 2014 were affected.
Around 0.05% of EE's customers will receive a refund of between £2 and £80.
"Due to a configuration error in our billing system, made following a system change, a small number of customers were wrongly charged VAT on the Data Roaming bundle outside of Europe," spokesman David Nieberg said.
"This was a mistake, and we are now refunding these charges and contacting affected customers to apologise for the error."
He added: "We've claimed that money back from HMRC, and then it goes back to the customers."
EE will not pay cash refunds, instead placing credit onto customers' accounts.
