A broadband speed study has found EE to be the fastest mobile service provider in Birmingham and Leicester.

Independent consumer advocate RootMetrics conducted more than 50,000 mobile performance tests across the two Midlands cities, comparing the performance of EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three.

In Birmingham, EE achieved average download speeds - combining both 3G and 4G - of 24.2Mb and average upload speeds of 19.3Mb.

These results were almost 17.3Mb faster for downloads than any other mobile broadband provider, whilst upload speeds were more than nine times quicker.

EE's average download speed in Birmingham is the fastest RootMetrics has recorded by any operator in the UK to date.

Businesses and consumers in the city can now take advantage of double-speed 4G mobile broadband services, after EE upgraded its Birmingham network in July.

"4G services enable local residents and businesses to access the web on the go in an instant, download large email attachments quicker than ever, hold video calls, watch live TV on the move without buffering, and play live multiplayer games on the go," EE noted.
