EE home broadband edging towards 1 million customers
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.
