And we're not done yet
We've already built the biggest and fastest 3G and 4G networks in the UK. And we now have well over one million customers enjoying the convenience and reliability of superfast 4G mobile services.
Next up, we're doubling our 4GEE speeds.
And we’ve got a great new Fibre Broadband network. It gives you a home broadband connection typically 10 times faster than the UK average.
2G - the network for calls & texts
The 2G network carries your phone calls and text messages.
And we're making big investments to ensure the service keeps improving.
3G - fast mobile internet for browsing
3G gives you fast internet on your phone, tablet or laptop. It's ideal for checking emails and browsing the internet on the go.
4GEE - Superfast internet on the go
With a 4GEE plan you get superfast internet on the go. The network is growing quickly - and we're rolling out double speed 4GEE.
If you have a 4GEE plan with us, you can use our 4GEE and 3G networks. If you move out of 4GEE coverage you'll move seamlessly on to our 3G network.
Orange and T-Mobile are brought to you by EE. So if you're with Orange or T-Mobile, you can use our 3G network. This covers 98% of the UK population.
If you have a 4GEE, Orange or T-Mobile plan, you’ll see EE at the top of your screen. That's because you’re using the EE network, the biggest 3G network in the UK.
1G: Remember the huge 1980s mobile phones? They used 1G (first generation) signals.
2G: In the 1990s, the UK went digital with 2G and we still use 2G for calls and texts.
2.5G: (Also known as GPRS) brought the internet to our phones by chopping data into bite-sized pieces.
2.75G: (Also known as EDGE) gave us download speeds up to three times faster than GPRS.
3G: Up to ten times faster than GPRS, and is perfect for browsing, tweeting and checking Facebook.
3.5G: (Also known as HSPA), this new technology sped things up once again, making it easy to use apps and download music and videos on your phone. Now there’s HSPA+, which is great for HD film streaming.
4GEE: Gives you superfast, super reliable internet wherever you are. A true step change in the evolution of mobile communications.
Double speed 4GEE: Speeds of up to 60 Mbps. That's faster than most people's fibre home broadband.
EE now has the UK’s widest and most capable spectrum portfolio.
This will boost superfast data services and coverage, indoors and outdoors, in cities and the countryside.
We’re also updating and evolving our core network service, so customers will be able to make more calls in more places. More news on this next year.
