What is EE Full Fibre?

In the UK, EE now offers full fibre broadband with a fibre optic connection going all the way into your home. It’s different from normal fibre broadband where the “last mile” from the cabinet to your home uses an old copper connection.

There are three main benefits when upgrading to full fibre broadband:

  • You can connect up to 100 devices at the same time. According to EE, you can connect up to 100 devices at the same time to their full fibre broadband. This includes streaming, gaming and video calling on more devices at the same time.
  • You’ll get speeds up to 18 times faster than the UK’s average broadband. You can get average download speeds of up to 900Mbps. This is 18 times faster than the UK’s average broadband connection (which has an average download speed of 50Mbps). It means downloads will happen a lot faster, with a HD-quality film downloading in as little as 40 seconds.
  • You’ll get a more reliable connection with less lag. You’ll benefit from a more reliable service when using full fibre broadband. This is because it isn’t affected by noise and interference in the same way as old copper phone lines. You’ll also get less lag on your connection which will make things more responsive, especially for online gaming.

At present, EE’s full fibre broadband service is available in around 18.3% of UK homes. You can check the availability where you live by entering your postcode on this page.

If you’re currently unable to get full fibre broadband from EE, you can get their regular fibre broadband service from £26 per month.

EE offers a choice of three full fibre broadband plans: Fibre Max 100, Fibre Max 500 and Fibre Max 900. The plans differ in terms of the speeds available (with download speeds ranging from 145Mbps to 900Mbps).

All of EE’s full fibre broadband plans come with unlimited usage included. In addition, if you’re an EE pay monthly mobile customer, you can get up to 20GB of extra data added to your phone plan each month.

The Fibre and Fibre Plus plans are normally offered using fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) technology. This is where a fibre optic connection runs to a cabinet near your home, with the ‘final mile’ between the cabinet and your home using a copper connection.

EE Full Fibre Features

Improved Speeds & Reliability

When you sign up to EE’s full fibre broadband, you’ll benefit from download speeds that are up to 18 times faster than the UK’s average broadband connection. This allows you to use more devices at the same time and also to download files much faster.

Alongside this, you’ll benefit from a more reliable broadband service as the full fibre connection won’t rely on an old copper phone line. There’s also less lag which makes things more responsive, especially if you’re playing games online.

Mobile Data Boost

When you sign up to EE’s full fibre broadband, you can get up to 20GB of extra data added to your EE pay monthly mobile plan.

The amount of extra data you receive will depend on the type of EE mobile plan you have:

  • You’ll get 20GB of extra data every month if you have an EE phone plan (including both 4G and 5G phone plans).
  • You’ll get 5GB of extra data every month if you have an EE 12-month SIM or 5G Smart SIM.

There’s more information about the mobile data boost on EE’s website.

Smart Hub Router

You’ll get EE’s latest Smart Hub Router included when you sign up for their full fibre broadband service.

The Smart Hub Router will connect to EE’s full fibre network, producing a Wi-Fi network from it that other devices can connect to. It has 7 built-in Wi-Fi antenna to optimise the performance of your network and supports dual-band Wi-Fi 5 technology.

Alongside the Wi-Fi connectivity, you’ll get 4 Gigabit Ethernet sockets on the back of your router. This allows you to connect wired devices to your home network.

Smart WiFi Add-On

For an extra £10 per month, you can add EE’s Smart WiFi add-on. This includes a Wi-Fi boosting Smart Disc which uses mesh wi-fi technology to improve the Wi-Fi signal in your home.

The EE Smart WiFi Disc works together with your EE Smart Router to give you a single Wi-Fi network covering your whole home. By giving you a stronger Wi-Fi signal, it should reduce Wi-Fi blackspots as well as giving you better speeds across your home.

The Smart WiFi add-on also includes a 4GEE WiFi Mini hotspot. This comes with 2GB data per month so you can use it to get online with a mobile broadband connection on-the-go. If there’s ever a fault with your fibre broadband service, the hotspot will be boosted with an extra 250GB of data to keep you connected.

Switching To EE Full Fibre

If you’re switching from another broadband provider to EE’s full fibre service, it’s easy to do this.

Start by ordering your new full fibre plan on EE’s website. When you place your order, you’ll be able to choose an installation date for your service (typically for around two weeks time).

Once you’ve placed your order online, EE will normally contact your old provider to cancel your old service. This is unless you’re a Virgin Media customer, in which case you’ll need to call them separately to cancel. If you’re charged by your old provider for cancelling your service early, you can apply for a £50 bill credit from EE.

  • I find it strange that upload is limited to 110Mbps on FTTP, that is because fibre connection are usually symmetric and there is no benefit of offering asymmetric speeds.
    It made sense on old broadband connections as it was technological limitation, hence “bands” were allocated to download which is more important to most consumers. But this makes no sense on fibre as it is inherently symmetric – especially the last leg of non-fibre ethernet most consumers get at home.
    So my guess is that this has nothing to do with technical limitation, but rather few business related decisions – first of all EE does not have their network, they purchase network capacity from likes of Openreach or Plusnet, so it is cheaper to buy 1100Mbps, than it is 2000Mbps (the only reason most of fibres are symmetric is that cost difference is quite small here unlike on broadband or FTTC).
    But more important reason is that they don’t want to jeopardise their their enterprise business. If enterprise customer can get 1Gbps uploads on consumer line without data restrictions, then what is the point to get £1000/month enterprise line?
    On other hand Hyperoptic offers symmetric speeds, because 1 – they own their own lines, so the cost of extra bandwidth is not relevant… and 2 – they don’t have massive enterprise business, so they don’t care about hurting it.
    I was interested to see if EE offers this in my area, but sadly they don’t and most importantly it would me no sense for me to switch, however it would be nice to have this option when it comes to negotiation with Hyperoptic.
    In last few year Hyperoptic was getting cheeky with their speeds, but they can do it because they know that I have no alternative.
    For example on my Hyperoptic 1Gbps connections I have no issue pushing 950Mbps uploads all day long since I got it 5 years ago, but downloads were steadily going down as more and more people subscribed in the estate – on day one I was able to do ~920Mbps downloads, but a year later it was already 850Mbps and by now I am happy if I get even 750Mbps during peak hours. In other hand I am only paying £35/Month on 24 Month plan. Whereas inferior 900/110Mbps connection would cost me £50/Month with EE.
    My only hope is that Community Fibre will roll out their 3Gbps fibre near me soon.

  • Hi Ken,

    Do you know if it’s possible to use a 3rd party router with EE Fibre Max plans like it’s possible with BT?

    • Hi there,
      My understanding is that EE doesn’t currently offer a landline option on their FTTP plans. I believe you’ll need to go to BT if you want a landline option.
      Ken
