    Have been without broadband for 3 weeks and service still not restored. Spent MANY hours on phone already and 4 visits from Openreach engineer which have taken up 5 hour sliots for each. Warning that £50.00 penalty would be imposed if equipment at home is found to be the problem.
    Long delays each time I call with assurances that they pride their excellent service. One return call promised faithfully but not fulfilled and one promise to supply replacement route by return not honoured. Personnel appear to be helpful but no progress has been made. The Management need to know these problems and take positive action to provide acceptable level of service.
    We have two mobile phones from EE and receive low level of internet access or occasionally no service. All this living within 4 miles of a major city centre and less than 1 kilometre from the control unit. Decisive action required or replacement of senior staff who CAN DO and justify their positions.

    I have made 。EE aware despite I have the fast broadband firbre it is slow and very often my computer crashes

    I entered into a contract for fast delivery of broadband this is the worst broadband I have had and according to EE because the required speed in the area he stated in my contract I am now stuck with the broadband that doesn’t work whilst EE are happy to take my money and now suggested I go to the ombudsman

    I entered into a contract to get a fast Broadband I did not enter into a contract for EE specify I have the speed according to contract but not the broadband delivery I noticed the attitude has changed since becoming part of the BT group when your business – finally fail You will not be able to contest the bad causes you have made

    Members of the public be where this is a terrible company to do with throughout my complaints not able to receive the broadband I’m paying for iPad managers on the phone copy rude Speaking down to customers who contribute to watch that wages

    This is terrible broadband and EE is a terrible company to deal with. The service department literally do nothing except give false promises. The download speed for this provider averages as low as 1.2Mbps!!! This is basically Unuseble. Best advice?....KEEP AWAY FROM EE BROADBAND!!!!!

    if i could give no stars i would. not fit for purpose. think dial up and then imagine something worse. terrible customer support which ive had to call at least 5 times every year. takes them an hour on the phone to sort it out and then give it a month or so and back to dial speeds again. just get a couple of bean cans and a bit of string. it'll be more reliable. anyway ive cancelled . it was quicker to just switch rather than spend another hour on the phone to their pony customer support team .and its cheaper and faster. good riddance

    I have never known broadband as bad as this. All these reviews are right it is too slow to work and thus unfit for the purpose. EE has structured itself to not give a toss for its customers. They must know how bad it is. I have complained enough times but no improvement happens, no compensation, no attempt to help....just no interest. I cant wait to sign up to another provider. Nothing can be as bad as EE.

    EE broadband is so bad it cannot be used. It cannot serve one device let alone multiples so the router is trash as well. My firestick freezes all the time (it did not with SKY) so my 3 year old gets really frustrated with her cartoons. This ISP it totally UNFIT FOR THE PURPOSE. Customer Service department takes the p**s out of us. What a disgusting company this is. DO NOT GO NEAR EE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!!!!!!!

    I am speechless that, living near to the centre of the Capital City of the U.K, I cannot receive a quality download speed from this British Internet EE Company! It is disgraceful.....as indeed is its misnomer of a customer services department. I have speeds so slow that streaming is impossible, emails with attachments will not download or upload, graphic heavy sites take an age to download and it is all but impossible to run more than one device off of the router. Utterly Disgraceful.

    It has come as a real shock that broadband can be as slow as this with no customer care support and no interest from EE at all once you have been duped into signing the contract. I would give no points or even minus points if I could it is that bad!

    Having switched broadband between Sky, BT and Talktalk I had mistakenly formed the opinion that it didn't really matter who your provider was. They were all much of a muchness, just get the cheapest deal. Then I switched to EE on an 18 month contract. Big mistake! It's like a trip back in time to the good old bad old days of dial up. Was dial up this bad? Never again, all the one and no star reviews are accurate. It's truly shocking.

    If you are thinking of getting ee I would highly recommend against it. I have never had such a bad broadband in my life it's the slowest nothing will download for me. All my movies end up buffering for most of the time which pisses me off. They will cancel the contract for 180 pounds but we want to cancel on the grounds that our contract states we are to get 78mbps and we don't even get 1.2mbps. Please never use ee they are as close to scammers as PPI. Worst service. Disgusting service. There licence should be taking off them.

    Worst internet ever. I pay £30 a month for 72 mps so that online games are completely unplayable, I live in the city centre and my ping on eu servers no matter what game I play is in the 90's and 100's most of the time. Downloading anything takes way longer than they should (took me 8 hours to download league of legends). Watching any movies or videos is pointless as it always ends up stopping and buffering even on low quality. I've asked for help from ee many times and all they've done is basically shrug me off every time. No. 1 internet service provider my bumhole.

    I just cannot use this EE broadband because it is too slow to work. It takes ages to log on, it takes ages to download an email. That's a s far as it goes. Try to download a busy site of a video and there is no chance. What kind of garbage broadband is this!!! I am so sick to death of complaining to there technical department. After 4 months of complaining nothing is better...NOTHING!!!! I got this as a fixed term and fixed price contract for 18 months and they have put the price up!!!! EE is a SCAM!!!!! KEEP AWAY FROM EE!!!!!!!

    This is digusting broadband, too slow for any useful purpose. I am sick of complaining to their idea of customer services. Reall bad broadband. cannot watch a video and basic internet functions are slowed down to a level that means they virtually do not work. Too slow to even use one device properly. Literally!!
    DO NOT CONSIDER EE AS A BROADBAND PROVIDER!!! It is truely terrible!

    I'll make things real simple. If you want to log on quick, if you want fast downloads, if you want reliable download speeds, if you want to get to your inbox fast, if you want to download and upload fast, if you want to watch TV reruns, if you want to watch/stream videos, if you use a Amazon firestick, in fact if you want any kind of decent Broadband.....then DO NOT GO TO EE BROADBAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This broadband sucks!
    Slow doesn't cover it!!!!!. It just is not fit for the purpose. How can EE call broadband that is this slow a Broadband Connection. Oh, and don't forget the comedy show that passes for customer services that is able to do Nothing!!! Oh! And don't forget the price hike mid contract on a "fixed price for 18 months" contract. Wow...There are so many Cowboys working for EE they should be in a Western.

    The Broadband download speeds for this ISP have diminished month on month, until now I barely exceed 1.2Mps. This is outrageous! Countless times I have complained, the router has been changed, EE says it has done this and that and yet the download speed is still appalling.
    There are two points to be noted here:
    Firstly that the speed used to be much higher.
    The second point is that with my previous ISP the download speeds....for the same line and set up....were around 24Mps.
    So, either there has been a cataclysmic disaster with EE.....which means they should have repaired it OR there is a policy of constricting download speeds to existing customers. The moment this contract expires I am leaving for good.

    Never have I had such a slow download speed since the days of narrowband in the nineties. I have repeatedly complained to the EE service dept but nothing has been done. I am 6 months into an 18 month contract and I am really unhappy with this Company. My mate is an IT analyst and he tells me that he believes that EE deliberately squeezes the download speeds to allow more people to use the same pipe and that is illegal but no one can prove it. My download is around 1.4Mb/s. That makes watching videos impossible, and not more than one device can be used off a router. I never had this problem with Talk Talk and I thought they were bad.

    EE broadband really is disgraceful. All the time it is crawling pace downloads, my Amazon Firestick worked great with SKY but now I cannot watch a video without stuttering or freezing completely. The line is the same, all thet has changed is the provider! It is impossible to upload an email with an attachment and generally, all of the time the download speed hovers around 1.2Mbps, that is disgraceful. No matter how many times I complain to EE's idea of a customer services department, nothing improves. They want me to go to fibre....but when they sold me this package, EE assured me that my downloads would be at least as fast as my previous provider (SKY). That is a blatant lie! EE broadband cannot support more than one device at a time and in fact CANNOT EVEN SUPPORT ONE DEVICE! Oh, and to add to the tissue of deceipt, they have increased my contract fees mid way through a "Fixed Price Contract".
    AVOID EE COMPLETELY!!

    If you have a problem with EE broadband speed, particularly upload, replace the terrible bright box 1 router. I started using the technicolor I got from SSE 3 years ago and the problem with unusable slow upload has disappeared. I feel sorry for the people working on the customer service line. They can't say that the supplied router is rubbish and you need to use something else to get reasonable service.

    EE is a company that is incapable of delivering the ISP service that it says it provides. Incredibly slow download speeds of little more than 1Mb/s make this broadband barely useable. I was mis-sold this contract! It's customer services department is also utterly incapable of doing anything about it. I would not have believed there could be an ISP in the UK, that could be allowed to trade and be this awful!!!!.
    My simple advice to you, if you are looking for acceptable reviews, with a mind to choosing a broadband provider, is DO NOT USE EE!!!!......Ever!!!

    EE broadband is sensationally lousy! Fantastically slow.....beyond belief. Not fit for the purpose. As good as unusable. Disgraceful customer services. Not interested in the customer only interested in money. Excuse on excuse but never an improvement. I absolutely cannot recommend this excuse for a broadband company to anyone at all!!!! The very moment the contract expires I am off to anyone but EE!!!!!!!!!

    Hi,
    I called EE customer service around 10 times and my issue has still not been solved. They owe me more than 200 pounds because I have been invoice wrongly. Each time I called, they apologized for the mistake BUT never send my money back.

    Dubious about switching to EE for fibre having read the reviews, but I couldn't be happier about my experience. We were kept updated every step of the way with texts, letters and emails. Full set-up instructions came with the router, plus a video link sent to my phone for additional help. Now it's set up we get the full 36GB speed that we were told we could get. I can't comment on customer service as we've had no reason to contact them. It's easy to leave negative reviews; if only everyone who had a good experience left a review it may be easier to get a true balanced review on all the broadband providers out there.

    This EE broadband is appalling. The download speeds are not what I was promised. They are not a bit slower they are completely slower. In fact the internet is almost unusable. The speed is in fact so slow that basic internet functions cannot be relied on. I am fatigued with the number of times, over the past 4 months, that I have complained to EE "Customer Services" about this. They promise to look into it but NOTHING IS DONE! EE is appalling. When the contract is finished I will go elsewhere, in fact anywhere to get away from this appalling Company.
