The best overall network in the UK
RootMetrics conducted over 500,000 tests across the UK during the first half of 2020, including testing in 750 different places and 16 major metropolitan areas.
The results concluded that EE is the UK’s no.1 Network for the seventh year in a row and has the UK’s no.1 5G network over any other major UK network.
The most time spent on the 5G network
More time was spent on EE's 5G network than on any other network according to RootMetrics testing conducted during the first half of 2020.
Time on 5G is defined as the percentage of data tests conducted entirely on a 5G network during RootMetrics testing of the UK. EE had the most time spent on 5G with 25% of all data tests being conducted over the 5G Network. Vodafone recorded the second highest time on 5G with 5%.
EE's significant lead in time on 5G is down to our significant 5G coverage advantage over competitors.
