EE UK Launch New 145Mbps and 300Mbps Fibre Max Broadband Plans

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018 (9:34 am) - Score 6,846

Mobile operator and ISP EE has today followed parent BT by launching their own range of G.fast based 145Mbps (28Mbps upload) and 300Mbps (47Mbps upload) download speed capable “Fibre Max” ultrafast broadband and phone packages for residential consumers, which start from £42 inc. VAT per month.

As you’d expect the services are currently only available to a limited number of areas because Openreach’s new hybrid-fibre G.fast network has so far only reached over 1 million premises, although it’s aiming to cover 10 million by the end of 2020 and 59 new roll-out locations were just announced yesterday (details). The installation will also be conducted by an engineer.

Max Taylor, EE’s MD of Marketing, said:

“Our new fibre broadband plans are designed to support the demands of customers with increasingly connected homes and families. With the growth of 4K TV, smart home technology becoming more popular than ever, and more members of the family using the latest smartphones and tablets, we’re giving our customers the widest range of converged mobile and home broadband products in the UK, along with the best customer service, so they can enjoy the fastest speeds both in and out of the home.”

Otherwise new subscribers will typically receive unlimited usage, an included wireless router (all ‘fibre’ plans include their Smart Hub router), phone line rental (standard call rates), UK and Ireland based customer support, a 20GB mobile data boost for EE pay monthly mobile customers (it’s 5GB on their slower packages), free setup (usually £50 on Fibre Max) and if you need a new line installed then this may attract a one-off £30 charge.

Standard Broadband (10Mbps Average)
PRICE: £19 a month for the first 18 months (£31 thereafter)

Fibre Broadband (36Mbps Average)
PRICE: £25 a month for the first 18 months (£36 thereafter)

Fibre Plus Broadband (67Mbps Average)
PRICE: £30 a month for the first 18 months (£41 thereafter)

Fibre Max 1 Broadband (145Mbps Average)
PRICE: £42 a month for the first 18 months (£48 thereafter)

Fibre Max 2 Broadband (300Mbps Average)
PRICE: £47 a month for the first 18 months (£53 thereafter)

* Includes Call Plus + Anytime UK and International calls add-ons.

Customers can optionally add a Pay TV service (additional £8 per month) or various free UK call allowances on top for a few extra pounds per month. As a special offer existing customers who upgrade by the 25th July 2018 will also receive a free BT Whole Home Wi-Fi (worth £199) kit, which claims to deliver “seamless high-speed Wi-Fi all around the home using a supercharged ‘mesh’ network” (hard luck if you can’t get G.fast yet).

The eagle eyed among you will notice that some of EE’s post-contract prices above have also quietly increased by +£1 extra per month from what they were before. On the other hand it’s interesting to note that EE’s pricing seems to undercut BT’s charges for the same class of package.

    Can someone explain this to me?

    On the dslchecker on BT’s (Address Checking) website it says I have access to VDSL 80Mb/s Down and 20Mb/s Up.

    Right below that, it says FTTC on Demand AVAILABLE to 300Mb/s Down 30 Mb/s Up

    Yet, when I check these websites no one is offering the 300Mb/s packages like article explains. Am I missing something?

    Also, if this a different technology to G.Fast, how would I ‘get’ FTTC on Demand’s speeds to my house? It says it’s available, why not make use of it, right?

    Thanks for anyone who replies in advance!

      FTTCoD is not same as G.Fast

      The availability checker will show G.Fast has an option, if available to you.

    2. Martin Pitt - Aquiss says:

      *FTTPoD (not FTTCoD) – Caught myself out there 🙂

    3. Ryan says:

      Ahhh, okay. Where would I buy FTTPoD? As it’s available.

    4. Martin Pitt - Aquiss says:

      A few providers supply it (we don’t), however, you will need deep pockets as most desktop quotes come back in excess of £15000, with others hitting the 30k mark.

      I’ve heard that vouchers to bring install cost down are floating around for SoHo’s if you meet requirements.

  2. TheMatt says:

    The quote i had for FTTPoD (home business, with a voucher) came to £8k for install and £300 a month plus mandatory hire of a juniper router at £800 one off cost. I found two companies willing to install it. Virgin media offered a better deal with completely free installation of FTTP under an 18 month contract but 50/50mbit at £150 a month which is slower than my current links.

    1. TheMatt says:

      yeah that was a reply for the thread above. i can’t internet today
