EE offers speedy broadband at prices that won’t break the bank, as well as TV and free data for mobile phone customers who sign up for broadband too. Read on, as we take a closer look.
What can I get from EE broadband?
EE offers standard broadband, superfast broadband and ultrafast packages, all of which compare well to correspondingly priced packages with similar speeds from rivals and are available on minimum 18-month contract terms.
Here's a breakdown of what each has got to offer:
- Standard Broadband - 10Mbps average speed. A standard ADSL connection that's ideal for anyone who lives alone or with one other person and is fast enough for browsing and watching EE TV.
- Fibre Broadband - 36Mbps average speed. Superfast fibre optic broadband that lets you stream video, download files quickly, and connect lots of devices at once.
- Fibre Plus Broadband - 67Mbps average speed. Ideal for a large family home or shared accommodation, full of people who are regularly online simultaneously.
- Fibre Max 1 Broadband - 145Mbps average speed. Tailored towards households that stream or download all their TV in 4K or HD and wants an optimal online gaming experience.
- Fibre Max 2 Broadband - 300Mbps average speed. Top of the range product for a seamless service in the busiest households.
All packages come with unlimited downloads, so you can browse and stream as much as you want without hitting a usage cap.
They all come with a router, too. With Standard Broadband, you'll get an EE Bright Box with ADSL. But if you choose any fibre deal, you'll get the more powerful EE Smart Hub.
You’ll also get EE line rental included too, which you can upgrade to a proper home phone package. Here your options are:
- Line rental only - The standard line rental from EE, with pay-as-you-use calls at standard rates.
- Anytime calls to landlines - Adds anytime calls to UK landlines.
- Anytime calls to landlines and mobiles - Adds anytime calls to UK landlines, and 1500 minutes to UK mobiles.
- Anytime UK and international calls - Adds anytime calls to UK landlines, 1500 minutes to UK mobiles, anytime calls to landlines in 50 select countries, and a discount to landlines in the rest of the world
All EE line rental options include a few calling features, such as voicemail. You can sign up for Call Plus too, which adds call divert, three-way calling, and anonymous call rejection.
Whatever broadband and landline options you choose, a few extras are thrown in as well. There’s the chance to win tickets to events at Wembley Stadium - and up to £50 to help with early termination fees from your current provider if you’re switching.
If you've got a pay-monthly EE plan on your mobile too, taking out broadband will get you an extra 5GB on your data allowance each month when you sign up for Standard Broadband, Fibre Broadband or Fibre Plus Broadband.
Sign up for Fibre Max 1 Broadband or Fibre Max 2 Broadband and you'll get an extra 20GB per month.
EE TV deals
Broadband customers can also get EE TV. This includes an Apple TV 4K set top box, which lets you stream content on demand and catch-up on shows you've missed on BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and All 4.
You can watch Netflix and Amazon Prime too and get BT Sport with the BT Sport Ultimate add-on for an extra £5 per month.
