EE has launched what it claims is the cheapest unlimited broadband deal around, as part of a refresh of its range of home broadband products.
From today, existing EE mobile phone customers, or those signed up to either of its Orange and T-Mobile sub-brands, can get EE's Unlimited Standard Broadband and UK Weekend Calls bundle for £3 per month for the first 12 months and £6 thereafter.
That outlay (plus £15.40 per month line rental or £11 per month if you pay 12 months in advance) gets them a broadband connection of up to 16Mbps and free calls at the weekend.
EE’s revamped product line also sees the addition of the Bright Box 2 router to all its fibre broadband bundles. Billed as ushering in a new era of ‘plug and play fibre’, this eliminates the need for installation by an engineer.
It’s also home to next-gen wireless AC WiFi technology that boosts the range of the connection within the home and promises reduced drop-off speed when users move away from the device.
In recognition of the profusion of gadgets now in use around the home, AC Wi-Fi is the same technology featured in most of the current-generation of tablets and smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4. EE claims this means customers “can be assured of the best connection to the superfast network at home as well as when they are out and about”.
Sylvain Thevenot, Marketing Director at EE, said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to enjoy the fastest fibre speeds using the latest wifi technology to connect everyone in the home - without the hassle of waiting in for an engineer to install their new fibre line.”
EE’s cheapest fibre broadband is now £8 per month for the first three months and £16 for the remainder of the contract. This features a connection speed of up to 38Mbps and weekend calls.
