Who are EE?

In 2010, Orange and T-Mobile merged to form EE, one of the UK’s largest communications providers offering both mobile and home broadband connection. Now owned by BT, it is one of the ‘big four’ ISPs.

EE uses its parent company BT’s superfast broadband network, allowing it to offer a competitive range of home and Wi-Fi broadband, reinforced by its own 4G mobile network that covers 70% of the UK. It offers speeds of up to 67Mbps in most locations, and up to 300Mbps in others.

If you’re signed up to a monthly EE mobile deal, you can also get access to top quality home phone and TV extras, thanks to EE’s relationship with Apple TV. This includes stunning 4K-quality entertainment, including BT Sport.

What does EE broadband offer?

EE Broadband: The basics

EE offers 6 different base broadband packages, with download speeds ranging from 10Mbps all the way up to 900Mbps.

Each of these base packages are broadband only, meaning you do not get any inclusive landline phone service. However, you can add on pay as you go calls for free, anytime calls to UK landlines & mobiles for £8.36 extra a month, or anytime UK and international calls for an extra £12.54 per month.

All packages come with a router included as standard, although you can upgrade to EE’s Smart WiFi service for £10 per month.

All of EE’s broadband contracts last for 24 months, except for their Standard Broadband ADSL package, which you can sign up to for just 12 months should you wish.

If you are already an EE mobile customer, you will receive a discounted rate on your monthly price, a mobile data boost, and you are given the option to upgrade your contract to include an Apple TV 4K for a little bit extra per month.

If your property doesn’t already have a phone line, you will be charged a £50 engineer call-out fee to get this installed.

EE Standard Broadband

EE’s basic ADSL broadband package comes with an average download bandwidth of 10Mbps and an upload speed of 1Mbps.

At £22.50 per month for a 24-month contract, with a £10 installation charge, we believe there are other ADSL packages available on the market that will offer a similar service for less.

At usave we do not recommend a household opts for an ADSL connection unless they have no other choice; if you have the option to switch to one of EE’s fibre packages below we would recommend you go for one of these.

EE Fibre

EE’s lowest priced fibre package offers average download speeds of 36Mbps and upload speeds of 11Mbps; perfectly adequate for small to medium households who do not require a lot of bandwidth.

At £23 per month, it offers a good price per each Mbps on offer, one that rivals packages from other ISPs. The main downside to this package is the 24-month contract.

EE Fibre Plus

EE’s Fibre Plus package clocks in with a download speed of 67Mbps and an average upload bandwidth of 18Mbps.

This package will suit most medium sized households; you shouldn’t have any issue with multiple people using the internet at one time.

At £26 per month, it is only £3 more per month than EE’s regular fibre contract and offers almost double the bandwidth. If you can stretch to this level, we would recommend it; you will get a much more stable and faster internet connection for not that much more each month.

EE Fibre Max 100

Now we are onto the heavy hitters. EE’s Fibre Max 100 uses Fibre To The Premises cables that will provide your household with a download bandwidth of 145 Mbps and an upload speed of 28 Mbps.

EE Broadband

Fibre Max 100

24 month contract Fibre + Phone

145Mb / second

Average speed

£32.00 / month

£0 upfront fees

This EE broadband offer should be sufficient for most medium to large households, as well as heavy internet users (including gamers).

It does cost a little more though; at £35 per month it's a bit pricier than the average broadband deal, but we think the price is worth it for the increased download speeds and better latency.

That is, if you can get this package. Whilst most households will be able to access EE’s 67 Mbps offering, this package uses newer FTTP connections, so fewer properties will be able to access it yet.

EE Fibre Max 300

If you are looking for next level speeds, you will see them with EE’s Fibre Max 300 deal. With average download speeds of 300 Mbps and upload speeds of 48 Mbps, this contract should allow you and everyone else in your household to stream 4K, game competitively, and download large p2p files at the same time.

EE Broadband

Fibre Max 500

24 month contract Fibre + Phone

500Mb / second

It does cost £42 per month, meaning over the course of the two year contract you will be paying £1,008. This is quite a bit of money, and it costs a bit more than you will be paying for similar speeds from some other ISPs (e.g. Vodafone, Virgin Media), but this is a premium product and has been priced as much.

EE Fibre Max 900

Prepare for lift off; EE’s top broadband package comes with unbelievable download speeds of 900 Mbps and upload speeds of 110 Mbps.

EE Broadband

Fibre Max 900

24 month contract Fibre + Phone

900Mb / second

£50.00 / month

This package should be enough for any sized household and sufficient for heavy internet users who want to game / stream / download to their heart’s content at blistering speeds.

And at £54 per month, it isn’t too expensive (at least compared to the competition). The contract will cost you £1,296 over the two year period, but when you compare this package to other ISPs, it is clear it is a good deal; BT’s own gigabit package costs £59.99 per month, and Vodafone’s costs £60 per month, meaning you will make a saving of around £144 over two years with EE on these competitors.

EE home phone:

Any EE internet deal will come with a phone line which includes free weekend calls. There are upgrade options available if you wish to wish to include free weekday or international calling.

If you already have a mobile phone contract out with EE, signing up to an EE broadband package will net you an extra 5GB of data to use every month free of charge.

EE phone and broadband packages

All EE broadband deals come with line rental included as standard. You can upgrade this to be a proper home phone package if you want, and here are the options available to you:

  • Line rental only: This is the standard line rental from EE, with pay-as-you-go calls.

You also get access to features including voicemail and Call Plus, which adds three-way calling, anonymous call rejection and call diversion.

EE TV

As well as internet and phone services, EE have recently launched themselves into the TV market. It doesn’t have the same amount of services as some of the other broadband providers, having only 103 channels and limited catch up apps. It does have some perks however including a terabyte of storage and the ability to use your mobile phone as a remote.

Access to EE TV includes an Apple TV 4K set top box, allowing you to stream catch-up and on-demand TV including BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, Netflix and Amazon Prime. For an additional £5 per month, you get access to BT Sport too.

EE routers and ways of getting online:

All of EE’s broadband packages come with line rental and router as standard. Depending on the package, you’ll get a different router. Here’s what is available to you as an EE broadband customer:

  • EE Bright Box: This type of router is available to all standard broadband customer with an ADSL connection.
  • EE Smart Hub: Twice as powerful as the EE Bright Box, this router is reserved for fibre broadband customers, and is designed to provide multiple devices with high-quality internet connection simultaneously. It offers a range of management options, such as data use surveillance and limiting access on specific devices, which you can access simply by logging on with your computer. The router itself is also plug-in-and-go, so no need for an engineer, and it even fits through your letter box!
  • 4GEE Home Router: This connects to EE’s flagship 4G mobile network and can offer average speeds of 31Mbps throughout the home via Wi-Fi. It too is just a plug-in-and-go!
  • 4G Wi-Fi Mini Dongle: This nifty little device, weighing under 100g, can create a Wi-Fi hotspot for you on the move. It comes with a variety of data plans, from 2GB to 20GB per month, and will connect to up to 20 devices at once.
  • HTC 5G Hub: You can also opt for EE’s 5G hub, which uses the 5G mobile network in your area to provide unbelievably fast download speeds. This is subject to availability, though, because 5G doesn’t appear in all areas.
