EE's fibre broadband customers are set to gain access to a new wireless broadband router later this summer.
The broadband provider is launching the Bright Box 2 in a bid to offer a stronger Wi-Fi signal and less drop-off in speed, when a customer moves around.
Designed to complement EE's super-fast fibre network, the router features the latest advanced wireless ‘AC Wi-Fi’ technology.
This is used in many of the latest smartphones and tablets, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, meaning mobile broadband users should benefit from improved connectivity.
EE says it will also be the first broadband provider in the UK to offer plug-and-play fibre broadband.
"The Bright Box 2 is designed to work without the requirement for an engineer house visit, allowing customers to get online as quickly as possible," the firm stated.
Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive of EE, said that having launched the UK's first 4G and fibre broadband network, his firm is innovating to stay "one step ahead" of its rivals.
