Is EE fibre optic broadband any good?

EE doesn’t just offer blisteringly fast 4G on its mobile plans - it can also give you even-blisteringly-faster fibre broadband in your home as well. It’s quick, it’s reasonably priced, and it comes with a bunch of cool extras too. Here’s what EE has to offer on the fibre front.

What can I get from EE fibre?

There are two fibre broadband packages you can get from EE. They are…

  • Fibre and home phone - download speeds up to 38Mb
  • Fibre Plus and home phone - download speeds up to 76Mb, perfect for a big household with lots of gadgets

Both have totally unlimited downloads, and no traffic management whatsoever on EE’s main network. You’ll get an EE Bright Box 2 router chucked in, and a year’s subscription to Norton Security Premium - which gives you a bit of internet security for up to 10 devices. That includes protection for PCs, Macs, smartphones, and tablets.

They also include line rental, complete with weekend calls to UK landlines. There’s the option to add calls to mobiles or international calling minutes too, if you’re so inclined.

On top of that, you can add some basic telly. EE TV gives you around 80 channels, and lets you pause, rewind, and record - there’s a whopping 1TB of storage in the TV box - as well as watch catch-up services and on-demand shows.

Plus, if you’re already an EE pay-monthly mobile customer, you get a little bonus when you take out broadband: a rather nice 5GB of extra mobile data each month.

What’s good about EE fibre?

  • Superfast speeds, up to either 38Mb or 76Mb
  • Truly unlimited downloads on all packages, so you can browse as much as you like
  • Special deals for existing customers, and data boosts for EE mobile users
  • Inclusive weekend calls to UK landlines come as standard
  • Internet security from Norton included for one year
  • Can add on basic TV too

What’s bad about EE fibre?

  • Fibre broadband still isn’t available everywhere - use our postcode checker to see if you can get it
  • Even faster speeds are available from other providers, such as Virgin Media or Hyperoptic
  • Fibre contracts are a rather long 18 months
  • Customer service isn’t as strong as that from other providers, according to Ofcom
  • Bright Box 2 isn’t the best router on the market

FAQ

  1. How do I switch broadband provider?

    The process of changing your broadband provider is actually pretty straightforward. First, you put your postcode into our impartial comparison tool. We’ll display the broadband, phone and TV deals available where you live, and then you can use our search filters to narrow down the options and find the perfect package for your household. Finally, you sign up with your new provider online. They’ll contact your existing provider and take care of everything else for you (unless you're switching to or from Virgin Media).

    The actual switch should be virtually seamless, and in the vast majority of cases it is. Your new broadband provider will send you all the stuff you need to get set up, like a new wireless router and/or TV set-top box.

  2. How long does it take to switch to fibre?
    It varies between providers, but usually within a couple of weeks from when you place the order. It can be much quicker, or it can be slightly longer, depending on whether you need an engineer to visit you. Your new provider will give you a more accurate idea of how long the switching process will take.
  3. Can I keep my email address if I switch provider?
    It depends on which provider your email address is currently from. BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, and Plusnet all let you keep your email address in some form after you've switched - but we'd recommend using a free service like Gmail or Outlook. See our guide for more information.
  4. Will I lose my connection if I switch?

    No. You can continue using your current service to the day your new provider activates your connection.

    With some providers, the only downtime you may experience is a couple of hours on the day the switch actually happens. However, you should be able to plan ahead if you provider has an order-tracking system.

  5. Can I keep the same phone number?
    Even if you're switching phone provider it's usually possible to keep the same telephone number. However, if you're moving house it may not be possible to keep your existing phone number - particularly if you're entering a different area code.
