Who are EE?
EE is the newest kid on the mobile broadband block, sort of. This joint venture from T-Mobile and Orange originally began as Everything Everywhere when the two mobile giants decided to join forces, but in late 2012 it was re-branded as EE for the roll-out of 4G. Now, rather than just a name EE is a network all by itself, while T-Mobile and Orange have been retired.
This is an exciting proposition as 4G can provide speeds in excess of 20Mb so our little dongles can potentially give faster connectivity than a home broadband service. That's great news for anyone still stuck on an old 8Mb ADSL line.
The network provides both standard USB dongles and a portable Wi-Fi hotspot device. The latter is ideal as a replacement for fixed-line home broadband since you can share the 4G link with multiple devices.
You do need to make sure you're in a 4G area, however. The EE 4G network is expanding rapidly but they're currently focused on the UK's major towns and cities so huge swathes of the country are still without 4G. Even then the signal may not cover the entire city, and if 4G isn't available the dongle will drop back to 3G when possible.
