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 - average download speeds of 36Mb
  • Fibre Plus and home phone - average download speeds of 67Mb, 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 Smart Hub 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, with pay-as-you-use calls. 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.

  • Even faster speeds are available from other providers, such as Virgin Media or Hyperoptic
  • Fibre contracts are a rather long 18 months
  • No calls included with line rental as standard - you'll have to pay extra for those

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.

    For more info, see our guide: How to switch broadband

  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. 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.

  4. Can I keep my email address if I change provider?
    This depends entirely on who your current provider is. If your email address is from BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, or Plusnet, you'll still have access to your emails at least temporarily - but we'd suggest changing over to a free service like Gmail or Outlook so you don't need to worry about losing all your emails just for switching broadband. See our guide for more info.
  5. Can I keep my phone number if I switch provider?

    Yes, you can normally keep your existing number if you switch from one provider to another. However if you're a cable customer or need a new line, you may need to get a new one.

    For everything you need to know, see our guide: Can I keep my phone number?

  6. How does fibre optic broadband work?

    Fibre optic broadband works by sending information down fibre optic cable instead of a traditional copper wire. It moves incredibly quickly and encounters less resistance, so you get broadband that’s much closer to the advertised speeds than standard (ADSL) broadband wholly through your phone line, where performance is more variable.

    In most cases, the fibre cables run to the nearest street cabinet, with the final leg of the connection - between the cabinet and your house - being either copper telephone wire or, in the case of Virgin Media, coaxial cable. As a result, some speed degradation will still occur, but you’ll still experience speeds well beyond those you’d get with standard broadband.
