EE home broadband edging towards 1 million customers
Wednesday 21 October 2015 09:02:41 by Andrew Ferguson

All millionaires say the first million is the hardest to make and EE has been feeling that problem for some years and while its latest quarters results show a fairly small growth of 8,000 fixed line broadband customers, the total of around 924,000 at the end of September 2015 is an impressive 17% growth on a year ago.

The mobile side of the business is much larger and the growth of the 4G customer base is where the success story is with 52% of 4G customers on a post pay plan. EE has some 12.6 million 4G customers an increase of 7 million in the last year and is the largest 4G operator in Europe.

Coverage is stated as 93% of the population has access to 4G and the double speed 4G service is available to 75% of the population and some sites in central London offer LTE-A which puts EE speeds at the forefront across the globe apparently for mobile broadband.

Surprised at their charges if off EE network & no mobile from EE, can't get many customers from that scenario!
i.e. £24.95 monthly BB,£16.40 monthly LR and with only 20GB monthly usage!

Does anybody know what will happen to EE BB customers should the BT-EE merger go ahead? I assume that, at the very least, the EE will have to retain a separate retail entity. It's not a massive proportion of the BB market (maybe 4-5%), but still significant.

Other than speed they haven't got anything on Three yet.

Why do you allow such a vulgar (if cleverly worded) username?

Anyhoo..

Signed up with EE and yes I was due to get an extra 10GB and a £50 contract buy out on my current ISP

BUT

EE wanted £50 to migrate me from Zen to them and £44 a month for phone and BB. I am sure that's wrong as it's not a new connection but they say ALL customers MUST pay this charge

Despite the board outside saying free connection and £1 a month for 12 months.

I walked out half way through.

Robbing turds.

The only real innovators on mobile are EE and three. O2. Is up for sale as there parent company is skint and vodaphone after years of investing outside the uk has finally decided to start investing in the uk after selling out in the USA. Compaining they can not getting a good return of network spend. But there are starting from the back of the queue with the worst network. The uk is not profitable as the market is dominated by the iphone. There is only one company that makes a profit from iphones and that company is apple.
