EEEE broadband boost for over 500,000 customers

EE has rolled out its 4G Home Broadband product across the whole country after (what it says was) a successful trial in rural Cumbria, promising maximum speeds of (up to**) 76Mbps for everyone - and you can even have an external antenna fitted now if your internal 4G signal isn't quite strong enough.
It is intended for areas receiving poor broadband connectivity.
EE is offering to install a 4G antenna at those premises where, due to their remote location, they can not get fast broadband speeds via a traditional fixed-line connection.
Created to connect rural areas where it's too expensive to roll out fixed broadband, the offering combines EE's existing 4GEE Home Router connected to an antenna fitted to the outside of a property. For the record, Ofcom (a telecom watchdog) defines superfast broadband as download speeds greater than 30 Mbps and a decent broadband as speeds above 10 Mbps.
The service was launched alongside an online coverage checker, which allows customer to assess both fixed and mobile availability in their postcode and choose the best option accordingly.
EE has trialled its 4G antenna solution across the Northern Fells in Cumbria, and said that it has (for the first time) given those homes stuck in rural not-spots, superfast broadband.
EE's antenna delivered speeds of more than 10oMbps to the Cumbrian properties, the company claimed. EE reported that its new 4G+ service could help more than 580,000 remote homes to gain access to high-speed internet. "With access to fast broadband, people's lives really will be transformed".
EEEE says it will use its 4G network to supply better speeds to rural areas
"What EE is doing is transformative", said Rory Stewart, MP for Penrith and The Border.
EE marketing managing director Max Taylor said: "As our network continues to expand into some of the most remote parts of the United Kingdom, we've seen the incredible impact that 4G connectivity can have on rural communities".
"One of the real challenges is getting fixed fibre into people's houses because they are so sparsely populated in rural areas".
Available nationwide, the antenna will set you back £100, including installation, but also requires you to sign up to one of EE's home broadband pay monthly plans that start at £35 per month.
The customer will of course then have to pay a monthly fee going forward.
EE's most expensive package of £60 per month will allow for a 200GB monthly data allowance.
Customers desperate for speedy internet can use a checking service to decide whether to opt for a standard fixed line or EE's wireless alternative.
