EE Network: The Story

EE is the largest and most advanced digital communications company in the UK, responsible for pioneering the first superfast 4G mobile service back in October 2012. EE stands for Everything Everywhere and it is certainly making sure they live up to the name.

Although EE is a fairly new brand, the network has a heritage of innovation and was born from two major mobile companies, Orange and T-Mobile. Today EE is officially recognised as the UK's biggest, fastest and most reliable mobile network, with a reputation that is continually improving.

Did you know with EE you get 4G in more places than on any other UK network, including O2, Vodafone and Three? We're not just talking towns, either. It's often in remote places you need your data the most. So we're working to make sure that more and more places are covered: from remote Cornish beaches to the top of Ben Nevis.

The network is constantly looking to the future and searching for new ways to outshine industry rivals. The newest introduction from the network is the revolutionary 4G+. This ground-breaking technology will open up new opportunities for customers, businesses and device manufacturers by providing an even faster and more reliable 4G connection.

The biggest independent network testing in the UK has found that the EE network outperforms all competitors for voice, text and data, and is the most reliable no matter where you are Get Apple Music and BT Sport on the most reliable network, with the fastest data speeds in the most places

Key Selling Points


Until now, mobile calls in the UK have gone over the nation's 2G or 3G networks. If you have a phone with 4G Calling technology, you can make calls over our 4G network too. Because our 4G network will be bigger than any 3G network in the UK has ever been, you'll be able to make calls in places you never could before. The 4G network is also more advanced than 2G or 3G, making your calls clearer and better quality. You can also use data at 4G speeds while you're on a call. So if you need to quickly check Google Maps while you're walking and talking, now you can.


We're the first UK network to show you our geographic coverage, not just population coverage. After all, it's often the remotest places where you need a good 4G signal the most. 95% BY 2020 We're working towards covering 95% of the UK with 4G by 2020. In 2016 alone we added 4G coverage to an extra 25% of the UK, meaning 75% of the UK now has superfast 4G speeds on our network. Our 4G is now available in more places than any 3G network, just four years after launch, making it the UK's fastest network expansion ever.
