 EE (Mobile Broadband)
Posted: 28th Sep, 2009    By: Dave Canter
I have been using this product for 1 year now. Firstly, unlimited means after you hit 3Gb you would get a letter (now replaced with text message and a webpage when you start browsing) month 3 and they send me another letter saying that unless you stay under 3Gb you will be restricted to a connection speed of 56k between the hours of 4pm and 12 am. but between the hours of 10am and 10pm i cant usually get a connection over 56k any way.

i got this broadband with a free (£20 more a month) laptop. meaning that i have to pay £35 a month not £15, what i effectly get for my money is an internet connection that rivals the one i had in 2000 for speeds, that ran slow all the time but the net wasnt so bandwidth hungry, and you always got your page eventually, now i have to keep refreshing as my computer doesnt realise that im still connected.

T-Mobile use image compression meaning you have to refresh every image you want to see clearly (shift-r/ctrl f5). also this doesnt work at all on facebook

i live in a good signal area, my friend lives in a very good. i get a reasonable connection at my friends, sometimes, others i just cant connect. at home, remember that this is a good according to the website i get 49%... on a good day, the rest of the time its ticking between 0% and 19%, nothing between, back and forth, back and forth (it does nothing while its flicking either)

as a round up, unless you live in a caravan or some other place that doesnt stay still, dont bother with this, get plugged into the wall and get a good speed and unlimited that really is unlimited. if this was acting at best, max speed, no limit, ideal situation type of thing... you would still have a dongle hanging out of your laptop that now and again you will knock and it will disconnect, i have a cable extender on mine (i dont dare put it right into the side of the lappy in case i accidently snap it or something)

get a demo instore to see what the image compression looks like, and then get their new prepay one for a trial (it will allow you to see what you are going to get for the next year and a half, and save you the stress that i have had)

i'd say,
Unlimited = Lie, its 3Gb limit
7.2 connection = never 100-150 connection at best wich in download speeds is around 56k per second
