The fastest overall network in the UK
We have the fastest overall median download speeds in the UK, according to RootMetrics' testing conducted during the second half of 2020.
We have the fastest average download speeds in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and recorded the fastest median UK-wide speeds of 43 Mbps.
That’s more than twice as fast as any other UK network, including Vodafone who recorded the second fastest median download speeds of 21.1 Mbps.
With the fastest overall speeds on EE, you’ll download content quicker and get the best quality video.

5G in more places than any other network
We have more 5G coverage in the UK than any other network, according to RootMetrics testing conducted during the second half of 2020.
When RootMetrics measured the percentage of tests conducted entirely on a 5G network in the UK, it found EE had the most, with 36.79% of all tests.
That’s over 2.7 times more connections on 5G on EE than any other network, including Three who recorded the second highest percentage of tests on 5G with 13.25%.
No other network gives you 5G in more places – so you can be confident you’ll get a great connection on the go.
