EE named UK’s No.1 network – five years running

December 2018

All the hard work has paid off. We’ve been named as the UK’s No.1 network at the RootMetrics Awards. That’s the fifth year in a row. So we’ve officially been delivering the UK’s best data – faster, more reliably, and to more places than any other UK network – for the last five years.

By an independent source you can trust

RootMetrics are a completely independent mobile analytics firm. They offer scientific insights into how users experience networks under real-world conditions. And like us, they believe in the importance of mobile performance in today’s data-hungry world. After founding the company in 2008, they quickly established themselves as a trusted source of customer-focused mobile network information.

And it wasn’t an easy test to pass

When it came to the 2018 Number 1 Network Awards, RootMetrics did their research. They performed 646,230 tests and covered 21,562 miles, testing 628 indoor locations and covering 100% of the population. This is no lab test award. This is about actual consumer experience, using off-the-shelf smartphones from high street stores. And it was conducted while driving around the UK. Day and night.

There’s so much more to come

The market may be changing. The way we all work may be changing. But one thing has remained constant over the past five years – we’re still on top. EE is the mobile network you can rely on.

And we’re not stopping there. In October, we switched on our first live 5G trial site at Canary Wharf in London’s docklands. Having pioneered 4G, we’re now forging ahead with the next generation of connectivity. So customers enjoy continuity with all the advantages of our innovation.

We have no plans to let go of the top spot. We plan to remain network leaders for years to come.
