London's best network

six years running

Six years at the top

We’ve been awarded London's best network by RootMetrics® for the sixth year running. They tested the four UK networks and we’re faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. What’s more, we’re working hard to keep it that way.

How we’ve got here

Our network has come a long way since we launched in 2012. Back then we had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today we cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. We’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And we’re already experiencing even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.

Our network helping you to do more

Call wherever there’s WiFi

We’ll keep you connected in even more places. Wherever there’s WiFi, you can call and text on EE.

Keep on multitasking

On EE, you’ll get 4G Calling, which means you can take a call from mum while checking in on Facebook. Win.

Do everything faster

With EE you’ll get superfast 4G, and have access to 4G+ (three times faster than 4G). Download an HD film in the time it takes to step out of your front door? Who says you can’t?

Best network doesn't happen by chance

Here’s how we gave our customers London’s best network

Behind the scenes

Since 2012, our engineers have installed and upgraded over 1,400 masts across the capital to give you better 4G coverage than anyone else.

Double time

We’ve more than doubled our speeds since 2014, up to a whopping 400Mbps. That means you can download a HD movie in less than a minute.

Heavy lifting

In the last year, we’ve powered London with over 100 million gigabytes of data. Our busiest mast, in Barking, handles an incredible 1,200GB per day.
