EE take top spot as UK’s Number One UK network

EE_shop_frontThrough independent testing by RootMetrics, EE have been ranked number one for mobile internet, call, text and reliability covering most of the UK. The exception was Wales where it came in joint first place.

RootMetrics assessed all four major operators, collecting over 840,000 test samples and driving more than 23,000 miles – the equivalent of driving from Land’s End to John O’Groats 27 times.

EE was ranked number one in network performance in all major categories in the UK:

  • Number one for overall network performance
  • Number one for network reliability
  • Number one for speed
  • Number one for mobile internet performance
  • Number one for call performance
  • Number one for text performance

Olaf Swantee, CEO at EE, said:

“Today’s results show that the EE network gives customers everywhere in the UK the best mobile experience. This is down to our ongoing investment in introducing 4G, increasing 3G capacity and upgrading 2G, while also spending hundreds of millions on phone call quality. We encourage the most rigorous independent testing of mobile networks in the UK, and strive to set new standards in performance and reliability.”

4G from EE currently covers more than 70% of the UK population and, as of today, 175 towns and cities with coverage now switched on in City of Londonderry/Derry, Northern Ireland.
