Reviewer Location Reviewing Date Ratings
Until recently I've been satisfied with my Orange/EE broadband service. 3 weeks ago I was averaging 17.5Mbps as I am quite close to the exchange. Then my connection started dropping randomly and reconnecting. The fault was at the exchange plus a new cable and main socket installed at home. The connection is now stable but I am getting 11Mbps. I know this more than some but less than I am paying for. EE tech said I should be getting between 14 & 18, but they failed to restore this or explain why, they just keep fobbing me off. All-in-all I've called 17 times and spent over 200 minutes on the phone trying to sort this. Their non-UK based tech support customer service is terrible, they don't listen and clearly read from a script, I also had to repeat my issue every time I called. I would recommend you stay away from EE, appalling service!

Southport EE  
Been with EE Since their broadband started off with orange. Standard broadband was fine for first year and a half then issues arrose from what was only diagnosed as "a shine on the line from outside environment " after putting up with no use of Wi-Fi, broadband dropping in and out every couple minutes we had enough of paying for something we can't use and using all our mobile data up, we called EE again and released from contract with no charges No hassle, no issues with leaving, apologised and very helpful.
I find that now the EE customer service is back in UK & IRE problems get sorted where as before with the overseas call centres, calls were put on hold for over 30 minutes (in hope u would hang up) promises of call backs that never happened and resoloution to your complaint didn't even exist. Now it gets sorted. That I'm pleased with that we get stuff sorted.

dundee EE  
The speed is good and the box is pretty decent. I prefer that to BT's fibre offering.
That's the end of the good bits. The customer service is shambolically bad. I've been with them for a week now and I've spent over an hour on hold to the customer service line, waiting for an answer, because they've overcharged me by £62.50 on my first bill and because my caller ID has not worked since they took over my line. I am still no closer to having these, I would have thought relatively easily rectified problems fixed despite being promised that it would be. The distinct impression I get is that they really don't care about customer service.

Glasgow EE  
Appalling customer service. I would not use EE again. I took advice well in advance of moving house about the options of transferring the service to my new address, transferring my current service back to my landlady and setting up fibre in my new house. Every piece of information I was given by phone was incorrect. This included how to transfer an account into a new name, the notice period required (I was told none several times but have now been charged both for 14 days and a disconnection fee). New contract was mis-sold both by price and coercion (customer service agent lied about price plan changes that were due the following day). When I finally cancelled everything and made a complaint the customer service team could be heard heckling and whooping in the background. Completely unethical business with no interest in customer satisfaction. Also takes 20 minutes to get through by phone and several of their advertised numbers are routinely cut off once you've got through if they are busy.

Worcester EE  
Great speeds so far. Customer service is an absolute joke. They overcharged me by £7.50 per month and then I had to prove that they had done so. I could not email any evidence to them as they cannot accept emails. I had to post this to them. Still waiting to hear back from them. I wish I had read the reviews first.

Essex EE  
I moved from Talk Talk which was a dreadful service to EE having been an Orange mobile customer for years. The Irish service team are friendly and helpful up to their limitations but despite having been assured they didn't have an Indian service support centre, guess what? They do and it's bloody useless. My main issue is that their landline 1571 does not allow me to personalise an outgoing answerphone message. I deal with clients who expect confidentiality so if they have to leave a message, they want to know that it's me they are leaving it with, not some generic woman's voice used by anyone. I would normally set up an outgoing message saying "Hi, it's *****, please leave a message or call my mobile the number of which is******". Impossible! Furious! I have e mailed them and told them I intend to break my contract if they cannot provide this basic facility. I also told them to call my mobile - at least they will know it's me because it has a personalised outgoing message on voicemail.

rainham EE  
Well I look at it from two angles: I have EE broadband myself - I signed up to a year's contract including home phone. My year is now up and as I am hoping to move home this year, I am on a rolling 30 day contract so that I can cancel with only 30 days notice. I hardly ever use my landline. All the calls I make are done on my mobile (with another network). The broadband for me has been fine, only once has it gone off and I cannot complain about anything. However, my mum has an iPad which she has been using first on a sim only plan with EE, then a MIFI plan with EE for the last month: right from the start this was doomed - it did not work, kept cutting out. I tried, we both did, going into the local store where the plan had been set up, they said they couldn't do anything, were not interested only that it (the MIFI device supplied by them) could go in for repair but it would take 2 weeks. I said surely if that is the case my mum won't have to pay for the "service". Oh yes they said! I was horrified. Not long after my mum took out a landline and broadband contract with EE. This was due to start and the MIFI plan end simultaneously so as not to interrupt anything. She was given a live date of 12 May 2016 (yesterday). On Tuesday 10 May 2016 her Internet connection went off, EE had disconnected the MIFI in advance without telling her. Yesterday her landline was cut off early morning by her previous supplier and I received a text an hour later from EE to say that her landline/broadband plan was up and running. Still her phone did not work and despite my phoning EE on my lunchtime break and spending time on the call when I had better things to do, when I arrived to set up her router in the evening it still wasn't working. I rang EE again, explained the whole situation, got nowhere, they transferred me to another department where they re-activated the MIFI so she could have "temporary" Internet - at their expense but it had to be on a contract!!! It worked for 5 minutes and then went off again so now my mum is stuck once more with no Internet coverage and no landline. She is in her 80s and lives alone. I am sick of telling the people at EE, they are useless. I will change my provider as soon as I can. Their customer service is appalling.

Yorkshire EE  
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.

Wooler EE  
Careful if placing an order online...
Previously on BT standard broadband - switched to EE fibre service. The website states 'no need to contact your existing supplier to cancel your existing service - we do this for you...'
When placing the order on their website, it was made clear that our existing BT line could not be maintained, and it wasn't possible to proceed with the order unless a new line was ordered - costing an extra £30 for installation. As the property is old (with old wiring) we took EE's instruction as genuine and didn't question the validity of this. The installation went smoothly, and the service seems up to scratch, however it soon became clear that the existing BT line had not been cancelled, and was still live. On contacting BT, they couldn't understand why the existing line had not simply been transferred to the new provider. It would seem that EE knowingly mis-sold a new landline to us unnecessarily, and their promise that they would take care of any switch-over from existing supplier was not truthful in this case. I don't know how such a high profile company can get away with this deliberate mis-selling.

London EE  
Initially my contact was for a complaint relating to one of their authorised online sellers called Metrophone. When I tried contacting them their telephone number was not in use, so I tried cancelling the purchase. Eventually I was in contact with a guy called Daniel in the exec team at EE, and credit where it is due, he was brilliant. I was so impressed I decided to take out my broadband with them, but I told him I had read some bad reviews about waiting time for equipment and connection. He sent me a mobile Internet device with data FREE of charge for the interim peroid. Four months later, Daniel had left the business and EE have used the direct debit set up for my mobile phone and taken £45 for the FREE device (my mobile phone contract was £14 per month)! I struggled to get my money back and I am now in deadlock. The exec team have passed me from pillar to post! One of the team actually made threats towards me, suggesting that if I don't agree to their resolution suggestions, they will revoke the resolution deal from the original complaint back in December! Absolutely appalled at the handling of THEIR mistake! Be warned .... they cannot be trusted with access to your bank account! The bank did get the £45 back, but I would not pay anything by direct debit to this company ever again!

cumbria EE  
AWFUL!!!!! Had broadband installed into a holiday home that was to be let out. We live three hours away from property so couldn't pop back easy. Took three months to receive router as they had wrong address yet everytime I called they would say they had the right address till the 5th call they told me oh we haven't got the right address here. Then it wouldn't work. Calling them is a nightmare! Customer service useless, have had the phone out down on me multiple times after waiting half an hour to get through!!! Then after we finally get our router... Get it working... We get a letter saying you want to cancel please send router back. Call ee, first time got through lady asked what my name was and said your not the account holder (I'm the joint account holder) and she just put the phone down on me!! Got through again after 15 mins and they said there was no evidence to why we was sent the letter. And whilst he was looking up our details I could hear other people in office saying stuff like "you should hear this dick head... Wants money back ha ha ha" I'm pretty appalled by their attitude! Now we are just waiting for the Internet to get cut and dreading having to call them again. Worst company I've ever come across. Ever.

London EE  
Sooo wish I didn't go to EE. Is it fast ? yes however 2 massive issues. You cannot download any torrents whatsoever as they have taken it on themselves to block them !! Another massive issue is I occasionally work form home and have a personal email address @mycompnay name - thing is I cannot send emails as you have to enter different outgoing mail server settings which is a opsin in the a!$ as I have to change when I get home, then change again back in the office. If I could get out of the contract they so clever tie you in with I would have stayed with SKY as they do not determine what websites you can or cannot download form and I didn't have to change my mail server settings. When I called them and asked why I cannot download torrents he said they follow some "guideline". Funny how Google do not do this and allow you to use the internet how you wish ! Pointless having 38 mb broadband as I cannot use it !!

EE Broadband is fine until there is problem. The overseas call centre are the rudest, most inept bunch of people I have ever come across. I was given different stories each time as to why my landline and broadband were down, spoken to rudely, dropped calls when questions I asked weren't on the script and people who say they'll call back and then don't.
You get what you pay for and even though BT was a lot more expensive, if you had a problem it was sorted out promptly and politely.
If you can't provide adequate service then you shouldn't be selling broadband.

Choose One... EE  
I moved houses and my new address came with a broadband provided in my rent. As a result I called to cancel my EE broadband contract. I was told I need to give 2 weeks notice so I will be charged for a week of August as I called them too late. Instead I got charged for a whole month of August. I called and was told I will get a refund. First day of September I called to check whether the refund is going to be in my account soon. I was told it will be once, the new bill is produced. Instead, I was also billed for another month , I called again, I was advised to cancel my direct debit to avoid being charged. We are in October and I just received a bill for October and being told I need to pay a late payment fee as well due to cancelling my direct debit and failing to pay for September. I called them the fifth time today and was told my refund won't be happening until December. It's a joke if you ask me. Wouldn't recommend.

We switched from sky to EE, our biggest mistake in our life. They said we will have better speed, we have slowest speed so far and broadband stops working all the time. when we complained , they said if there is problem in your home , you will have to pay for cost towards fault!!! Still broadband connection dropping off continuously!!!
Would not recommend EE ever.

Southampton EE  
Appalling: rang them to move house and was told that all was fine. Rang again after the day broadband was due to be set up and was told that I had no account with EE (despite having used them for some time previously), eventually found out that they had messed up the transfer and that they would have to start again (broadband would now be set up on jan 2, we moved on Dec 16, I initially rang on Dec 7). Then rang today and they have no record of my last conversation and the broadband order has not been set up. So we are starting again, and apparently will now be expedited... broadband now set to arrive on Jan 6. If not I will leave as they will have to waive the cancellation fee (only possible if they have taken more than 30 days to process the order - a length of time that speaks volumes for their own confidence in their abilities to work to a deadline).

Annoying since prior to this we had no issues (hence the speed and reliability scores).

I would not recommend EE. It took us almost 2 months to go live after being told it would only take 14 days. Kept being told different things after filing complaints in the end we got credited for the first 2 months after that we kept getting told our bill was outstanding when we was told we didn't have to pay for them because of the problems we were having. Then they just cut us off and closes out account without any formal notice! I couldn't even check my bills online their site it very confusing and customer service isn't all that great. I have moved to Virgin today.

Good as long as their is only one user, any more and it completely flops and is very frustrating. They also block P2P connections most of the time.

My friend has virign and it seems flawless where as EE seems more like minor broadband upgrade.

Would strongly recommend against getting EE even if it is a little cheaper, not worth any savings.

This is the worst broadband I have used or in the UK. The speed is so slow and most times no connection. Customer service cannot do anything to help all they do is to keep on the phone for very long time and be transferring you from one department to another. I have used sky in the past before switching to ee. It was a mistake I've been regretting since I joined ee. I can't wait to finish this rubbish contract and run back to sky.
However, I have written a formal letter to ee that I will stop paying the bills if I don't get the value of what am paying for.... May we end up in the court.
EE broadband the worst you will ever ask for.

EE customer service is just awful. In 2014, without notice, they shut down my broadband and phone account. It was Christmas Eve, which was nice of them! They claimed I had submitted documentation for a move to another ISP - documentation which they could never produce. It took six weeks and goodness knows how many mobile phone calls to get reconnected and, this also initiated a new contract so stuck with them for a while longer. In 2017 they shut down my Freeserve email account of over 20 years. Still feeling the effects of that seven months later: it's like moving house and you need to notify everyone who has ever written to you of your new address!! Anyway, the contract is up and I'm changing to a new ISP. Farewell EE and good riddance!

Left sky broadband and thought would be great to have ee home broadband for a saving of about £7 a month and the thing that really was amazing is the 10gb mobile data added for free to my mobile phone account every month. I went for it this is what happened
1- ee didn't put a request to keep my landline number which I lost I HAD THAT LANDLINE NUMBER FOR 20 YEARS
2-broadband connects great up and running in no time.
3-wife and the family start to complain to me that the new broadband is showing full signal and not getting the Internet.
4-I tell them it can't be, it's there phones.
5-I phone ee and they are very helpfull changing the settings ect but nothing changes.
6-The internet is now rubbish on everything that connects to it i can't watch Netflix without it stopping every 2 seconds.
7-I am using my mobile as a hotspot for everyone to connect to in the house
8-I am so unhappy with the ee homebroadband i only hope that they are listening to the public and sort it out.

Nice connection when it works, customer service was nice, but I am getting a bubbling feeling of hate in my chest because of the sheer choppiness and unreliability of the connection. I'm trying to play online competitive games, and my ping goes from a decent 30-50ms to 3000ms at the drop of a hat. I can have a 3mb download speed the one second (rare, though - averages at around 1mb), and 50kb the next. Customer service did the best they could, but said that they can't help with ping because they don't look at or care about that.

So frustrated. As soon as my contract expires I'm choosing a new ISP. The annoyance of playing a close game and then being booted out because of your service provider is driving me through the roof.
