EE in The News

 

 

So you’ve probably all seen the news recently where EE were fined by Mobile Regulators, Ofcom.

Ofcom issued EE a fine of £2.7 Million for overcharging customers.

We would just like to clarify that this particular issue on billing from EE is in relation to calling “150” from abroad. EE charged an incorrect rate of £1.20 per minute to customers calling from the US to EE, this rate should have been only 19p per minute.

If you have been abroad and are concerned you may have been overcharged please bring your bills in for us to go over with you.

Even if you haven’t been abroad, if you feel you have been overcharged or your bills aren’t what they should be, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will help clarify your bills.

 

For more information on the fine charged by Ofcom, please see the article below

EE’s 4G Network is Faster Than Any Other

It’s official, our 4G network is 50% faster than O2, Vodafone and Three

Without a fast network, using data is just annoying; Google Maps can’t tell you where you are, Netflix keeps crashing, and all Snapchat shows you is the buffering wheel of doom.

That’s why we’ve made our 4G network 50% faster across the UK than any other; to give you the content you want, when you want it.

WE LOVE SPEED BECAUSE YOU LOVE DATA
The average phone user now uses 3.4 times more data than when we first launched in 2012. We’ve got the speed and capacity you need to Snapchat, WhatsApp and YouTube to your heart’s content.

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED WITH THE UK’S BIGGEST 4G NETWORK
Our 4G network now reaches more than 95% of the UK population, so you can get superfast speeds in more places.



WE’RE 50% FASTER THAN ANY OTHER 4G NETWORK
So on average, we’re faster for downloading videos, music, emails and all the other stuff you do with your phone. So why would you choose any other network?

4GEE IS FAST. 4G+ IS THREE TIMES FASTER
4GEE is currently at 30Mb/s, which is five times faster than 3G. Our Double Speed 4GEE is twice as fast again, giving you speeds of up to 60Mb/s, while our new 4G+ is three times faster than standard 4GEE at up to 90Mb/s – it’s like getting Fibre Broadband on your phone.
