EE UK Grows to 714K Home Broadband Customers as 4G Users Hit 1.2M

Tuesday, Oct 22nd, 2013 (7:53 am) - Score 502

Mobile operator and ISP EE (Orange UK and T-Mobile) has published its latest Q3-2013 financial results and revealed that their fixed line Home Broadband subscriber base has continued its slow but steady growth to total 714,000 users (up +10,000 during Q3, the same level as Q2). Meanwhile 4G mobile customers have jumped from 687,000 in Q2 to 1.18 million now.

The news follows hot on the heels of last week’s major announcement (here), which among many other things revealed plans for another 4G double speed boost to 300Mbps (Megabits per second), the launch of a new Fixed Wireless 4G based home broadband solution for rural areas, new 4G mobile plans and a free 10 GigaByte 4G data boost for those who adopt their Fixed Line Unlimited Home Broadband service.

Elsewhere EE’s 4G network currently covers 117 UK towns and cities (60% of the population – reaching 98% by the end of 2014) and they’re expecting to push that up to 140 by the end of the 2013 when around three quarters of the country will be within reach of their 4G service.

Neal Milsom, Chief Financial Officer of EE, said:

Consumers and businesses across the UK are recognising that EE has the best network for the smartphone era, with more superfast 4G coverage than all the other networks combined. We attracted half million 4G customers in the quarter and large companies including ASDA, BT, Canon, Expedia, Kimberly-Clark and Virgin Media selected EE’s network to help grow their businesses.”

We had hoped to see EE push above the +10,000 quarterly fixed line broadband additions level, especially after first jumping to that in Q2 from adding only +1,000 during Q1-2013, but at least the growth is steady. Otherwise EE reported Turnover of £1,631m (-2.4% from one year ago) and Service Revenue of £1,446m (-3.3%).
