EE Launch New 4G WiFi and WiFi-Mini Mobile Broadband Routers

Mobile operator EE has today launched two new portable “next-generationMobile Broadband devices – the 4GEE WiFi and 4GEE WiFi Mini – that connect WiFi enabled kit (e.g. Smartphones, Tablets, PCs) to their superfast 4G cell network.

The most advanced device of the two is the 4GEE WiFi, which supports 802.11ac WiFi, the latest Category 6 LTE-Advanced 4G speeds (up to around 200-300Mbps on EE), a 5,000 mAh battery bank for charging separate devices or providing over 24 hours of usage, Qualcomm Fast Charge 2.0 and it can also deal with up to 10 devices simultaneously.

The 4GEE WiFi will apparently attract a one-off upfront cost of £49.99 (or £79.99 on pay-as-you-go) and the monthly Mobile Broadband tariffs then start at £11 (2GB of data) and go up to £28 per month for a 32GB usage allowance.

By comparison the 4GEE WiFi Mini is a smaller device that does away with the battery pack and only supports up to 802.11n WiFi, which means that it attracts an upfront cost of just £19.99 (or £39.99 on pay-as-you-go) and otherwise the same monthly plans apply as above.

Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices, said:

“As leaders in the UK 4G WiFi market, we’re continually looking to launch the latest mobile broadband devices. Our new 4GEE WiFi hotspots are designed for those who want a compact device that makes the very most from our award winning network when on the move.”

We should add that those who suffer from slow fixed line broadband, but which can get a decent 4G signal from EEs network, may prefer the 4G Home Broadband product that gives you a more advanced router and also offers a top data package of 50GB for £34 per month on a 12 month contract (the cheapest plan is £18 per month, but that only gets you 5GB).

    It’s a real pity the Home Broadband cap is only 50gb, in my house that’d last about a week with all the streaming we do as Netflix, iPlayer, Prime and Tidal react to the increased bandwidth. If it were 500gb I’d be all over it.

      I agree. Just dumped Satellite for 4G and am getting a consistent 12Mbps down with an external Omni aerial and a TPLink 4G modem. Pings down to 40ms and amazing reliability compared to Satellite.

      50Gb/month is not sustainable now I have access to e.g. the iPlayer so I have had to buy extra 6Gb data cards from Ebay.

      If 4G represents a ‘solution’ in rural areas, we really need a revision of the data limits.

      I am paying about £40/mth for 4G v’s £75/mth for Satellite with the same data limits.

      I am guessing £40/mth would get unlimited data if it was Fibre.

      Probably would Phil, but the cost structure to the ISP is very very different.
