Background

Everything Everywhere (EE) was founded in 2010 when T-Mobile and Orange merged businesses. EE was bought by BT in 2016, and uses the Openreach network to provide customers with the internet.

With BT as its host, EE is available in over 96.7% of the UK, meaning it’s fairly safe to bet you can get it in your area. However, you can use our postcode checker to check.

With home broadband, mobile plans and TV packages on its list of services, EE has a lot to offer customers.

 

EE Home Broadband

EE has a number of unlimited broadband deals, meaning you won’t get caught out by data caps or download limitations.

With Standard, Fibre and Fibre Plus broadband plans, you can find the right speed for you:

  • Standard broadband downloads at around 10Mb/s, which is most suitable for small households that only need the internet for basic browsing.
  • Fibre runs at a pace of 36Mb/s, for families with multiple devices connected simultaneously.
  • Fibre Plus has a speed of around 67Mb/s, for those who use their Wi-Fi for HD streaming, downloading and gaming on multiple devices.

There are even faster fibre optic packages that reach higher speeds, like Fibre Max 145 and Fibre Max 300. Shop around to find the best deal for you.

The fibre optic plans also come with the EE Smart Hub, providing advanced network functionality and a strong Wi-Fi signal across your entire house.

EE promises to never reduce your speed even during peak times, so your connection should stay strong and consistent.

If you’re an existing EE mobile customer, you can receive a 10% discount off your home broadband plan.

 

EE Mobile Broadband

EE offers mobile broadband in both 4G and 5G. This type of broadband doesn’t require cables to work, instead it utilises mobile networks to deliver internet to your house. EE sells a range of mobile routers, some of which you can take out and about with you to act as a portable hotspot.

While 5G gives you a faster connection, it’s not as widely available as 4G. Make sure to check what’s available in your area before committing to anything.

Mobile broadband is a good option if you live in a remote area, or if you want to get an internet connection set-up as quickly as possible (there’s no need for an engineer visit).

However, unlike home broadband, there isn’t an option for unlimited data, so if you do go down this route you’ll have to be careful with your usage.

 

EE TV

EE also offers TV bundles alongside its home broadband and mobile deals.

If you’re a monthly mobile customer, you can get Apple TV 4K as part of your broadband package. This streaming service gives you access to BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, BT Sport, Netflix, Amazon Prime and many more streaming services.

You also get 12 months free access to Apple TV+, which features Apple original shows and movies.

 

Should I get EE broadband?

Like all networks, it’s important to do your research and see what’s best for you, particularly in terms of needs and budget. It does offer some nice perks like a speed guarantee and 10% discount for existing customers, but you need to weigh this up against other networks. 

 

Cancelling EE Broadband

If you want to cancel your EE broadband package, you can phone 07953 966250 and give 30 days’ notice. If you haven’t reached the end of your contract term, you’ll be charged an early cancellation fee.

If you’re cancelling because you want to switch to a new provider, your new network should be able to complete the transfer for you.
