    I wish I read those reviews 4 months ago! Got EE broadband in February and here were are not even at the end of June, I’ve called to cancel and I’m not even mad about that cancellation fee. For me to no longer have this broadband, I’ll gladly pay! Working from Home had been hell with this quality broadband and I owe SKY an apology for moving! I never had any issues with SKY but since my phone was with EE, they totally bamboozled me with their deal offers whilst they had me on the phone! Lord, never again! If you ever call a company about one thing and they try to sell you another whilst they got you on, DROP THE CALL

    Contracted EE after rubbish time with Virgin Media - out of the frying pan into the fire!! Garbage service - garbage support, garbage product - and no real desire to fix. I’ll be ditching their mobile ASAP as I don’t wish to be associated with such rubbish! STAY AWAY FROM EE!

    Avoid EE broadband. Worst WiFi I’ve ever had. Constantly drops connection even to devices in the next room from the router. Parents also have EE broadband in a different area and they’ve had exactly the same experience.

    Be aware when signing up all inclusive calls do not include mobile calls, you have to choose another option to include mobiles. Found this out at my cost on first bill. Customer service is good and changed but in this day and age why aren't mobiles included I guess a good way to squeeze even more out of customers. Broadband is reliable and quick.

    EE is a joke with no integrity and no customer service and support.
    I have been with the EE since 2018 and I renewed my contract paying £30/mnth in February as I was told I will be getting 47-71 Mb/s estimated download speed range. And that is what I got exactly for 2 weeks and then it dropped down to 28-30 Mb/s.
    I gave them a call and the guy who spoke to me told me they will send an engineer to look for any outside connection faults. And if the problem didn't get fixed and if the service did not work as expected then I can terminate my agreement without any charge. When I asked him if I have to be at home, I was told I don't really have to be there as it was an outside job. After a couple of days, I got a message saying there wasn't any fault.
    I thought the service will get better so, I waited. But there were no changes and I decided to cancel my agreement and move to a different provider.
    I got this letter saying I will have to pay the termination charge of £158.07. Now as I had the right to cancel the agreement as discussed, I gave them a call to clear things. Sounds crazy, I had to talk with 5 different staffs and I had to be on the phone for more than 2 hrs just to talk on this matter and get things clear.
    The lady I spoke to in first place told me THE ENGINEER WAS NOT ABLE TO BE THERE BECAUSE OF CURRENT COVID SITUATION and was trying to help me out. The line was kept on hold but after a while, the line cut off. I waited for 5-10 mins hoping I will get a callback. Nothing came.
    I gave them a call again and spoke to this guy and mentioned him the same thing again. Guess what, the line got cut off.
    I had to call them again and this guy, the third person I spoke to told me I have to pay the charge because THE ENGINEER WAS THERE AND THERE WAS NO FAULT WITH THE CONNECTION.
    Now, WHO SHOULD I BELIEVE TO???????????????????????????????????? the lady I spoke to in first place or this guy.And guess what, I told him they are saying me different things. As soon as I mentioned to him that, he transferred the call to another staff from the technical section.
    Now, this lady told me because of this current situation they need at least 90 days to fix the problem and I am not allowing them to do that and that is why I have to pay the charge. I tried to explain to her but then she transferred the call to her manager. Now, the manager told me the engineer did come to my property and I DIDNOT GIVE HIM AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO INSIDE MY HOUSE TO RECTIFY THE FAULTS. Also, they expect a call from me if the service is not working properly.
    My question is how many times do I have to ring them and tell them about the same thing again and again. Also, EE usually put you on hold for long and they transfer your call from one staff to another having you explaining the same thing again.
    As you can see people are saying different things just to make me pay that charge. There is no big issue with paying the charge but since they are lying and making things up, that is clearly a lie. Can say, that is a fraud. This manager told me this is how they do the job. But I say that is how they rob the customers. I am ready to go forward with legal terms as I cannot stand it. After this, I am never going back with EE even though they give me free service and I would not recommend anyone if you are a person with the principal and you don't want to get robbed.

    Constantly cuts out and should not take 30 minutes to watch a 10 minute video. When we have tried to call and resolve the issue, we just get told that there is nothing wrong. Disgraceful.

    Router doesn't stay connected for more than half an hour max, the majority of time it's down. I honestly don't know what I'm paying for since EE don't provide any actual service other than a stupid annoying yellow light. Customer service told us it's because the router is too close to other electronic devices, when it isn't. It's got its own corner of the room.

    So if you want to pay £35 a month plus line rental for a blinking yellow light then go ahead, but you won't get anything more out of it.

    I've been with EE for years, unfortunately they're my only option in this backwards, remote area. The routers never last more than a few months without ceasing to work, but at least they replace them for free.

    I just want to go online, to use the internet like everyone else, but as long as I'm stuck with EE I don't see that happening anytime soon :(

    I don’t know about other people but Iv always had good customer service, even when my internet had stopped working. EE gave me free data when I had no internet for three days. Iv had an EE engineer come out and very honestly said that, fibre internet isn’t in my area and not to get it if an EE sales person rings me to upgrade. I can’t fault EE, yes they are expensive but I would never go with virgin or sky or BT, as their customer service is terrible. Doesn’t make sense if BT took over EE, why does EE internet work fine in my area, but BT internet doesn’t. Very strange.

    EE broadband is absolutely terrible. You won’t even get half of the average speed they state on their websites. Even when you complain about this all they do is ask you to reset you modem which doesn’t do anything.

    EE treat their loyal customers, who have been with them for decades, unfairly. They charge them way more then new customers.
    Last time I upgraded my broadband into Fibre broadband after having lowest speed. I agreed to pay £27 monthly by direct debit.
    It has improved for a short time and got even worse after that.
    Moreover, I was charged £32 per months.
    This month I found out that I was charged £41 with no notifications or whatsoever. Very disgusted by this!!!
    Can’t wait to leave EE!!!!!!

    Don’t even bother using EE Broadband. Every time I try to use the internet, it will either just not work or it will work momentarily and suddenly crash. After speaking to customer service, they said that the problem would be solved. It worked fine for a few hours and then the problems only started to occur again. The broadband is also not worth the price as the speed of the packages they offer for the price they do is not a good deal; and I regret signing the contract. If I knew the broadband would offer so many issues, I wouldn’t have even considered EE as a potential option.

    Don't waste your time. The only good bit is customer service. At the start it was good but they don't seem to care about keeping you interested because the quality drops quick.

    4 stars because Toni at EE was genuinely trying to help. Unfortunately, her determination was not matched by the service. If the broadband connection lasts more than an hour, it must be while I'm asleep or not looking. Changing to another supplier and it really cannot happen soon enough. If you are thinking about moving to EE...don't

    Do not do it to yourself. Even when I am the ONLY person as home and I am RIGHT next to the router, it still does not work.

    Since we got this broadband I have at most had 5 mb/s. My parents are paying for a plan where we should at least have 20 mb/s. A few weeks ago before the lockdown in Edinburgh, a man came to try and fix it, he was nice but did nothing to improve our wifi. And just yesterday another man came (but couldn’t come into our house because of coronavirus) and did absolutely nothing to help. In fact my internet has slowed down even more, down to 0.4 mb/s. That is terrible!!! My parents for some reason don’t want to change broadband but this is the worst internet I’ve had in my life. As good as McDonalds wifi.

    Switching to EE broadband has been one of the worst decisions I have ever made. I have been a long-standing mobile customer so it seemed a 'no brainer' to switch, taking into account the advertised speeds and the addition of 5 Gb of data to my mobile account each month, which is great because you will chew through that in the first few days each month when you don't even bother trying to connect your mobile to the broadband when at home. The speeds are awful (getting well less than 1 Mbps consistently), it keeps dropping out and it doesn't each more than about 6-7 m from the router. Avoid like the plague. Just do not bother.

    Moved over last June to fibre due to poor internet speeds but staying with EE who were my provider. Initially received for a couple of months speeds of 28mb but this has slowly dwindled down to 23 to 25mb max and service can often be eratic. Not that happy but tied in for 18 months.

    This is an initial review as line has only gone live this morning.
    I had a chat I store with very helpful member of staff. Signed up, I've had emails and texts informing me of progress and when equipment would turn up. Everything happened when I was advised it would be.
    Switchover day the old router was flashing, just unplugged that and plugged EE one in. There is a handy plastic tab on the side you can remove with the password and other info on, such a good idea.
    Had no problems at all while experience has been seemless. Speed is 2mbps slower but likely to increase to 28 where it was when it's settled.
    I used Call Centre once to ask if I'd need to contact Vodafone, that call was answered quickly and I was told they'd handle everything and they have.
    So far very happy.

    I am writing this as a balancing exercise, reviews are often biased towards negatives as those experiencing poor service feel the need to share their issues whereas those experiencing a quality service just take it for granted (the service is just as it should be) and make no comment.
    My own personal experience of EE has been good speeds and very reliable.
    Customer service though rarely used has been prompt and efficient.
    A recent fault resulted in crackling on the phone and seriously reduced broadband speed.
    This was correctly identified as a fault on the local loop and passed by EE to Openreach for a home visit.
    It was resolved in a few days, the fault being located as a bad joint on the outside of the house where the underground service cable had been extended to continue to the master socket.
    The only other issue I have had in my years with them was a loss of internet for 2 days, but that affected multiple ISPs across most of northern England and wasn't under their control.

    Absolutely disappointing and robbery, I did a transfer of my ee broadband since 03/01/2020 since then today is 20/02/2020 my hub keep rebooting and not working, it turns on for 1 and 2 hours and then stop working for 5 hours and more (no internet) I and my wife called several time to get somebody to fix the problem 3 times we didn’t got an engineer the 4th time we booked an engineer from 8 to 1 pm he came at 8am i was sleeping due after work I was so knackered i couldn’t hear the phone then I did it yesterday and was confirmed with text message yet nobody came it’s 12:50 pm, the think which making me crazy is that to get service it takes you ages and nothing is done but when is about payment we never delay them it easier for them to take money but not to do a good service, this February i was struggling with internet (ee broadband) it was sooooo bad suddenly I found a text message telling me that my bill is ready to pay it which is amount of £31.50 that so silly and not good for this brand at all and if you want to stop the contract they gonna 100% telling me you need to pay an amount bla bla ..... I’m just tired pffffffff

    I switched in January from BT to EE didn't want to as BT has always been reliable but having got EE at 1/2 price the decision was taken out of my hands but cannot say a bad word about EE as the service is as good and speed is slightly faster (2-3 mbps)so would highly recommend EE from my experience to date

    Very poor internet. There guaranteed speed checks are also a scam. They go off the speed going into the router NOT what speeds you get. Was promised 30 and I'm lucky to get 20. Router is shockingly bad. 3 bed house and I cant get signal upstairs. Internet drops out randomly, was told by EE that it was the fastest in the are, also not true as next door has double the speed.

    was a very good company until BT got their hands on it.
    BEWARE if you are considering a fixed price contact with them, their current contract give them the right to increase your by CPI. so much for a " fixed price contract"

    Big mistake switching to EE. Great talk from sales person on ease of switching, speed of service - even gave me a personal email address if I had any problems. Needless to say all rubbish. EE take over the line then all goes dead - no phone, no BB and very poor contradictory response from EE. AVOID THEM USELESS

    Poor service and NO parental controls in place to protect children instead wanting you to MICRO manage each device. DO NOT BUY I you want to protect your children’s online safety as they are not interested in helping and direct you to Norton who on doubt they have a nice relationship with for year 2 sales that you have to have to continue the service whilst in contract or your children can watch any online content they want online via WI Fi.

    No idea where to start, intermittent failures for almost 4 months. Closed incidents without agreement that problem was solved, no call backs when promised. No response to complaints. With so much shocking service they offered £30 compensation ( only when pushed). I’ve accepted yet still waiting an update. Will leave as soon as I can get the release current contract.

    Internet really bad. My wife by mistake continue after first 12 months. I need find way to cancel this broadband. First 3 months was really bad,no internet or was slow. Later they send new router, we had internet 50% time but was slow. Now after my wife renew , we have internet about 12 hours from 24 and 5 days from 7.really disappointed. Yes it's cheap but not worth. As I need use more my mobile internet so basically not saving money but loosi g.

    I regret the decision of switching to EE.They are the worst broadband provider you can ever find.Pathetic service.Broadband speed would always fluctuate,Signals used to drop frequently.I have been calling customer services again and again, but all they would do were the remote checks.Eventually i had to switch to Sky and life has been easy since.I wouldn't recommend EE to whoever is planning to join them.
