Reviewer Location Reviewing Date Ratings
I have finally managed to change my home phone and broadband provider from AOL-Talk Talk to EE after a frustrating, protracted period of a couple of months trying to port my original phone number to EE.

I have literally spent hours on the phone to both Talk Talk and EE's customer services, eventually discovering that the source of the problem lay with Openreach who incorrect address details for our land line.

However, through all the frustration of the last couple of months one thing has been clear, EE's customer services have been excellent and streets ahead of Talk Talk or any other customer services that I gave ever dealt with! They all worked really hard and devoted a lot of time to understand the problem and then did everything they could to resolve it, providing a very personal service from a named customer services rep. with additional phone calls and emails to ensure that things were going as they should or to explain why there had been a delay.
Unfortunately, at the final hurdle, our service changed to EE but with a new phone number - totally against our wishes. After complaining very strongly to customer services and being told that it may not be possible to retrieve the old number and if it was possible it may have taken 8 days to do so, Sharon at customer services pulled out all the stops and phoned me back the following day on our original number, having liaised with Openreach to resolve the problem much more quickly than would normally have been possible.
All of the customer services staff that I dealt with were very understanding, empathetic and genuinely interested in resolving the problems I was having - in complete contrast to Talk Talk.

Ayrshire EE  
Moved houses. Called them up. They said 10 days. However, I kept waiting around and being passed around for 2 months among people who had absolutely no clue what they were doing. Multiple times I was told I would get a call back - didn't happen. When I finally had enough - at the time of writing this review - they said I couldn't cancel because [insert badly explained nonsense]. I have never in my life seen a company treat a customer like this.

PORTADOWN EE  
I was promised many benefits if i were to switch over too EE. I mainly changed for their apparently 'amazing internet' EE quoted their fibre broadband would give me a download speed of up to 38mb/s but after i joined, made the payments and got the box, set it up by this time the 14 day cancellation was up. So the first thing i done was check my download speed. I only get a mere 4.2mb/s and the internet cuts out a lot I can barely use the wifi on my phone anymore.

JUST AVOID EE AT ALL COST, VIRGIN and even SKY do better deals.. wish i went with virgin

Irvine EE  
I once heard an expression about someone who was so trying he had "hit rock bottom but just kept digging". It is my feeling that if EE hired that guy he could be the smartest guy there. Unfortunately zero stars are the least I can give here but if it was an option I'd be about a minus 4 average. Do not ever contact or consider contacting this company. If I was to relate here our experience, though technically we never used them, you would think I was exaggerating. Not so. Even attempting to use EE has proven to be an hilariously disastrous experience. If you have an abundance of time, patience and a curious sense of humour (plus you don't actually want broadband) please disrefard my advice. In summary, a bunch of lesser known clowns who will reduce you to tears.
West Yorkshire EE  
Shame there is no 0 star option. This company is the worste out there. Our 12 month sentence is almost up, can't wait to change to Plus Net for a realiable and consistanct connection.

I would strongly recommend staying away from this company, just like everyone else seems to.

Wish i had checked around befor buying.

DO NOT EVEN IN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS

consider a switch to or use EE Fibre Broadband.

We had so many problems - customer services incredibly hard to reach.

Little or no cistomer service. Out BB was out from home office for around 10 days.

It was incredibly time consuming and stressful and no consideration or compensation from the company.

BT is the best way if you want reliability.

Torquay EE  
From day one the speed was much slower than my previous provider Sky, and also they blocked certain websites that I used to be able to go on with a message that said something like "we are blocking this content because the website operates unlawfully"- like they are doing me a favour! That's my choice to make not theirs. I had to disconnect the wifi when I was making a phone call at home because it would automatically connect to wifi call and make the signal infinitely worse and / or drop connection. When I phoned and complained about this, the guy on the phone looked at my info and said "ahhh I see what your problem is, you've got our standard package". It's insulting that the service they sell you is the same one that they use to tell you that your internet isn't good enough. I will recommend all my friends and family to stay away from EE.

Further to my recent review of my exit from EE and transfer to Plusnet, I feel it is only fair to add that I have received a final bill showing an overpayment. This amount is to be credited to my bank account.
I therefore upgraded my overall satisfaction score.

crediton EE  
I recently changed service provider (from EE to Plusnet) - not entirely hassle free as I expected it should be.
The changeover date was set to be the 25th of October 2016 and this duly happened with my phone, but not broadband, which was re-instated on the 27th. Nothing too stressful so far, but then I received an email stating that my phone services were to cease on the 18th of November even though the changeover had already taken place. I phoned and was told that EE placed a 14 day extension on my account after being notified of actual transfer having taken place.
I phoned them and the matter was resolved to some satisfaction after being told that a new bill for the month in question was not being raised. No mention of part month which I feel I am owed.
However, I do feel this 14 day add-on is ridiculous and my main reason for writing this is to warn others and for them to check if this has been applied to them.

Southampton EE  
I wish I had checked all reviews before choosing EE. The worst broadband ever!! We have been without internet for 4 weeks. 2 new routers were send but never worked. EE always blames something else. They blamed BT line. Two guys from BT came in in two weeks.. but is nothing to do with the BT line. EE can't solve the problem. They started to ignore my calls. Always promises to call me back but never does. Or they just leave you a voicemail that they couldnt contact you due to my bad reception!!! We're is the good attitude to customers???? Terrible service.

Edinburgh EE  
I see a lot of bad reviews about EE. So I'm guessing aside from my own personal experience, their services can be hit an miss. Though nevertheless I'll give an account of my experience with EE.

18mth Contract 76mb Fibre Broadband and Homephone.

I'm 19 months into using EEs fibre broadband and couldn't be happier. My download speeds sometimes exceed the 76mb advertised speeds by a mb or 2. I never seem to be slowed down at peak times and even though I use up an astounding amount of data. I've still not been slowed down or received correspondence to stop.

In 19 months, I have not once had any outages. Always a stable connection.

Aside from the actual product, which from my experience, has been amazing. Their customer service I have to admit is shockingly awful.

The customer service representatives don't really seem to care. Any complaints are dealt with in a, 'not our problem', kind of fashion. Usually only being resolved after escalating the matter.

I can understand why those who have had issues, don't rate EE highly. As I can imagine getting an issue sorted if something goes wrong can be very frustrating with EEs poor customer service.

For me, no longer being tied down by a contract as I'm now into a rolling contract. An never having issues with my broadband and getting the speeds I'm paying for. Is what keeps me with EE. If any of that changed, I'd be gone in a heartbeat.

Skipton, England EE  
Very poor service. First joined EE in March 2016, broadband was slow but we stuck with them. Moved house on 8th October 2016 and put in for the house move. EE stated this wasn't a problem and an engineer would be out on the 1st November to set up a new line. Waited in all day on the 1st nobody turned up. Rang EE and they stated a problem with BT and an engineer no longer needed to come to our property, but the line would be up and running by midnight the following Tuesday and we would also be given the 2 months free that we missed. Tuesday midnight came, no broadband. Called EE again and was given another date for the broadband to go live and that never happened. Finally we was given today's date tuesday 15th November for a BT engineer to come to our property to fit the line (baring in mind, this apparently was no longer necessary) anyway he arrived, expecting to be fixing a faulty line which should have been a 10 minute job when in fact a new line needed fitting due to a home move. So the 10 minute job he expected turned into a 2 hour job. (The BT engineer shown me the job he had been given for our property on his mobile and it was in fact 'a faulty line') he did the job anyway and after a brilliant job managed to get our phone line working, but no broadband. We made a call to EE to request they now make our broadband live since we have a fully working phone line. And they decide to tell us now after 6 weeks that we can't in fact get fibre broadband in our property due to there being no spaces in the green cabinet! Also the 2 month free that we was supposedly getting was infact a lie, as during a home move you dont get billed for the time you are without broadband. Safe to say we terminated our EE contract and are now looking elsewhere for broadband. Massive thank you to Neil from BT open reach though who did a fantastic job and got the line up and running.

Halifax EE  
I initially bought the non fibre broadband simply because it was the cheapest option. It was a bit stupid to be honest because before switching over to EE I was with Virgin on fibre optic so it was like switching from a coloured TV to a black and white one!
I ended up upgrading to the EE fibre package and haven't looked back since, its even faster than Virgin! The customer service was spot on and they even wavered the fee you pay for an engineer to visit!
A bit of advice for those of you that are debating on what package to get, if you use the internet for the bare minimum like online shopping, facebook and web browsing the non fibre one will be fine for you but if you have people in your house that watch a lot of youtube videos or Netflix then whatever internet provider you choose always choose the fibre package. Check if your area is compatible before you do though :)

Very poor service. Internet is very slow and quite often cuts out altogether. Customer service can only do a connection test to test if you're connected. Can't move provider as they wont cancel the contract even though half the time we are paying for no service. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. WORST BROADBAND EVER!!!!

Moved from Sky Broadband due to price increase. Speed dropped from 5+Mbps to under 1Mbps and connection kept dropping. Phoned customer service 4 times regarding this eventually they sent a BT Openreach engineer. Nothing wrong on BT side. It took over a week for EE to do anything. Speed increased to 5+Mbps for about 1 week connection still dropped then speed dropped again. Now 0.9Mbps or less on a good day. Customer service here I come. I was promised a credit on my bill

Prestwick EE  
PLEASE if you are thinking of switching to EE - don't. They are surely the absolutely WORST broadband "provider". My "service" started at 2mb download and stayed that way for 3 days. It then was ok each morning and slid from lunchtime hrough the day back to 2mb each evening. I googled to try and rectify what is a common complaint of their service, but ended up having to call them to investigate. Surprisingly given their size, everything about EE broadband is very, very amateur. You get through to a person in the UK very quickly, but in my experience, technically they are clueless. I spent 2.5hours in a working day, unable to work due to poor internet while I went through 'procedures' with them to check. Nothing changed and the girl (only in the job 1 week) disconnected me after 1.5 hours of fiddling, and didn't call back, and leaving me with no service at all. When I called back I was told they "were under no obiligation to return calls that got disconnected" and that my problem would be escalated to Team 2 (where Kafka is in the corner, taking notes for his novel). Team 2 said "people are not perfect" and that everyone makes mistakes, and then sent me a text saying the problem was under investigation. 7 days later, nothing. I then got sent a bill for £269.01 for leaving the service - which I am still in the cooling off period for. When I called about this, was told that it was "it's not from us it's computer generated, and the computer is not intelligent enough to know you are still in your cooling off period" !.
I switched back to BT - whose administration is awful, but whose broadband service was consistent. EE cling to this idea of a 10 day 'stablisation period' for the service. BT say this is nonsense, the service is established, and that's way you will get. In my case this is true.
The episode has been surreal - I cannot believe a modern company with a large infrastructure can get away with this level of poor service. I cannot imagine they will survive the market except by contractual entrapment.

I've been with EE mobile for years and just joined Home Broadband Fiber 38mbps/dl. The speed is the same as my previous provider, there are small problems I noticed:

- Ping is higher compared to Sky (lower the better)
- Speed is more stable with Sky
- Extra 5gb data is not automatically added to your mobile contract
- Hidden Charges! They didn't say there's a month in advance.
- be aware of shipping and a connection charge of £50 if you don't have BT fiber line. I do have this and still they charged me £25. Sky gave me this free for being a loyal customer.

I had EE broadband for 18 months before requesting them to do a home move. After moving into our new property we had problem after problem! There was a problem with the line, with our broadband box, technical faults, problems with the line again. Cut to 5 weeks after our move and internet STILL wasn't activated. Not only that but we were threatened with being charged for an engineer to come out and see what the problem was.

I can't emphasise this enough - do NOT go with EE Broadband. Awful service. By contrast we got so fed up and cancelled our account despite having 3 months worth of credit at this point. Virgin Media had the box with us and the line active in 48 hours AND gave us a couple of weeks free service as a thank you for switching.

Ellesmere Port EE  
I have been using EE/orange as my broadband provider for several years, most recently on a 38 Mb/s. My household runs everything through the internet and so we have an average usage of over 150GB/month. The service of EE has been very good, the speed remains at a pretty constant level and doesn't ever appear to be throttled back.

The 5 GHz signal on the router covers my entire house, if you gadget can us it and this will provide the full 38 MB/s. The 2.4 GHz signal will cover the house, garden and some of the road, but as there is a lot of other houses using the channel it can slow down, it usually provides around 20 MB/s but this is not really EE's fault and just the facts of the technology.

I have had a few problems with my service, the phone stopped working and my internet became direly slow <0.5 MB/s. I phone EE, after being on hold for 10 mins (7pm - weekday), was put through to customer services and quickly escalated to tier 2. The next morning at 8am BT Open Reach were at my house checking the fault. Turns out there was a fault with internal wiring as the main inlet worked fine. EE didn't charge me for this work even through BT said they would be charging EE. I have relayed my interal wires and everything is excellent again.

I have been really happy with the EE provided service so far.

If there was a 'zero' option, then I would give it. Absolutely awful Broadband. We are 5 months into our 1 year contract and cannot wait to leave EE. Constant buffering, cannot watch videos or Amazon Firestick. Everything takes forever to load. I have 2 children and they cannot do their homework at the same time. Contacted customer services (in India) several times and always go through same thing; try this, try that. But nothing ever changes. Was with Sky before and perfect. AVOID EE
Kent EE  
NEVER ever trust EE. The closed my account for no reason and I have had to open a new account. They did not inform me that my account was closed. The service was dreadful to say the least. I have had to buy a dongle which they tried to charge me for and a new router which I have to pay the delivery charges. DO NOT EVER USE EE. They are the worst. Believe me. They will lie and cheat anything to get the extra pound.

Wirral EE  
Into my 3rd month of an 18mth contract. One of the original emails from EE guaranteed a min 30mb download speed...70% of the time this is OK, but I have noticed that this frequently drops as low as 5MB download rate in the evening, despite multiple resets and calls to customer service, it still continues....I would suggest that this probably breaks their own terms and conditions and I will be seeking to break free of my contract as soon as I can....£27 per month for 38mbps ADSL to fibre cabinet with unlimited data......not good enough.
