EE’s new broadband service is designed to help you in the home, for playing games, for working, and for learning online. You’ll also unlock unlimited data SIM cards from £10pm.

In the UK, EE has relaunched their home broadband service, as a result of BT combining their operations into EE.

With the new EE home broadband service, you can get download speeds of up to 1.6Gbps with a full fibre (FTTP) connection direct into your home. There’s a focus on four key areas with the brand new service: making your home run more efficiently, helping you to game better online, to work from home more effectively, and to learn online. You’ll also unlock unlimited data SIM cards from just £10 per month as an EE broadband customer.

In this article, we’ll look at EE’s new home broadband service, including the latest deals and features available. We’ll also look at how you can switch to EE to take advantage of their new fibre broadband plans.

Regardless of the plan you choose, you’ll get EE’s latest Smart Hub Plus router. This has support for the latest WiFi 6 technology. In addition, there are built-in WiFi Controls that allow you to pause or schedule your home WiFi network using the EE app. A range of add-ons are available on top such as the Smart WiFi Guarantee, Hybrid Connect and WiFi Enhancer.

As an EE broadband customer, you’ll unlock unlimited data SIM cards from only £10 per month (for download speeds of up to 10Mbps). This can save you a significant amount of money when you get an EE SIM card for your phone. Not only that, you’ll unlock unlimited data on any existing EE SIM cards that you already have, costing £10 per month or more.

EE Home

One of the key focuses of EE’s new home broadband service is helping your home to run more efficiently.

EE’s latest Smart Hub router has built-in WiFi Controls, allowing you to manage your home WiFi network using the EE app. For instance, you’ll be able to configure parental controls on a device-by-device basis, or on a group basis (e.g. for all of your children’s devices). You can also pause or schedule your home WiFi, allowing for undisturbed mealtimes and bedtimes.

Another benefit of the latest Smart Hub router is the built-in support for next-generation WiFi 6 technology. This delivers better home WiFi performance with faster speeds and greater reliability. This makes it perfect for connecting lots of smart home devices, so everything can run smoothly without disruption. There’s also a built-in firewall on the router, along with advanced web protection from malicious threats online.

If you’re looking to extend the range of your home WiFi network, you can add EE’s Smart WiFi Guarantee. This uses mesh technology to seamlessly extend the range of your WiFi network, and there’s a £100 money back guarantee in case you’re not able to get WiFi in every room. You can also get Home Security and Cyber Security services from EE.

EE Game

As part of EE’s focus on gaming, they’ve launched a Game Mode feature for their home broadband service. This is available as part of the WiFi Enhancer add-on.

With EE’s Game Mode feature, your broadband service is optimised for gaming. As well as your gaming traffic getting higher priority on the network, you can optimise the ping for a more responsive experience when playing games online. There’s also a Geo-filter feature that helps you to find the best quality gaming servers.

If you want access to hundreds of high-quality games on your console, PC and in the cloud, EE also includes the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on some of their full fibre plans (worth £12.99 per month). You’ll get 6 months of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on Full Fibre 500, or 12 months included when you choose the Full Fibre Gigabit plan. Alternatively, if you choose an EE mobile plan with an Inclusive Extra, there’s the option to choose the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

EE has also launched an online games store where you can buy the latest consoles, games and accessories directly from them. This is available to all players, regardless of their network, and there’s the option to spread the cost over multiple payments if you like.

EE Work

If you’re working from home, you can activate the Work Mode feature on your EE broadband connection. This will give your working-from-home applications priority on the WiFi network, giving you a smoother and uninterrupted experience on Zoom and Teams.

In addition, if you’re looking for an ‘unbreakable’ broadband connection, you can add EE’s Smart Hybrid Connect add-on. Should there be a fault with your fibre broadband connection, the Smart Hybrid Connect device will kick in automatically and will switch your broadband service to EE’s 4G network to keep you connected. This is all seamless so there’s no need to tether and no need to switch WiFi networks, and it works automatically for all of your connected devices. That allows you to work from home, without the need to worry about your broadband service going down.

EE Learn

As part of EE’s focus on learning, they’ve launched a range of new tools for your children to learn online.

One of the key additions is EE’s new LearnSmart website. This offers ‘snackable’ educational content on a range of topics for children who are aged 11-17. There are online lessons available from a range of mentors including England footballers Marcus Rashford, Kieran Trippier, and Kyle Walker.

Alongside this, you can use the WiFi Controls on EE’s home broadband service to keep your children safe when they’re online. They also offer the EE PhoneSmart license. This is designed to help your kids get started with their first phone, with lots of useful information on how to stay safe and to be kind online.

Switching to EE

If you’re switching from another home broadband provider, it’s easy to move your service to EE.

Start by signing up for your new EE broadband plan online. During the sign-up process, EE will give you the expected go-live date for your service. Typically, this will be in around two weeks time. Until then, your current service will continue so there’ll be minimal disruption.

On the go-live date for your new EE broadband service, you’ll need to plug in your new EE Smart Hub to complete the switchover process. In addition, if you’re upgrading to full fibre (FTTP) broadband for the very first time, you may need an engineer visit to connect you to the full fibre network.

Typically, your old broadband service will be cancelled automatically so there’s no need to separately contact your old broadband provider. However, if you’re a customer of Virgin Media or another provider that doesn’t use the Openreach network, you’ll need to contact them separately to cancel.
