EE won the uSwitch Fastest Network of the Year award 2017. And not only is EE the fastest UK network, it's also the largest, providing 4G coverage in 85% of the UK. Rootmetrics named EE's network the most reliable network of the four major operators for calls, texts and data.
In areas EE 4G has yet to reach, customers are connected to the EE 3G network, which is also the UK's largest. In the event that no mobile signal of any kind is available, EE's VOIP app lets customers make calls over Wi-Fi.
EE tethering policy
EE customers get tethering included as part of their data allowance. This means you can use your phone as a hotspot to access the internet on your laptop or tablet.
Of course, this will eat into your data allowance. So unless you have a lot of data to use, try to use it sparingly.
EE, which stands for Everything Everywhere, was formed when T-Mobile and Orange merged in 2010.
It was the first UK operator to launch a 4G service in late 2012, with a super-fast service that was available in the UK's cities. Since then it has expanded to 215 locations, as of June 2014.
EE has since pressed home its first-mover advantage with network upgrades to bring up to 60Mbps 4G to larger cities and has embarked on high-profile promotions, including offering free Wi-Fi at the Glastonbury festival and Wembley Stadium.
