    Worst company I've every dealt with. I signed a 1-year broadband contract in September but didn't get internet until November. I kept calling and they would say "within the next 2 weeks." Then reliability was spotty all year: several times a week we would have hours of unexplained 90-100% packet loss to most addresses. And now that 1 year is up I have to pay a £40 "early termination fee" because it took so long to activate the year before. Despite multiple complaints, the customer service reps do nothing to remedy this. Do not go with EE!

    I have been with EE for two years. At first it took them 3 month to install my line and actually got the broadband. When I moved Home I asked them to move my broadband, they told me it would take three weeks. On the day I was supposed to have an active line nothing came up. Ring them, after two days on the phone they told me they moved it to the wrong address (and some poor people lost their connection in the process). They offered me a month free and told me it would be up in two more weeks... I made the mistake of accepting. A week later they come back at me telling me they needed to restart the process and that the line would me operation in an addition 4 four weeks... In the mean time they offered a 3G dongle as a "solution", turn out to be a pay as you go one for which I actually have to pay. I finally resign my contract with them.

    a carrier pigeon could get the information quicker.

    Over-priced, incredibly slow and EE teams that are very difficult to pin down what is happening / why it's terrible. When I asked to leave they all said that they understand why and they are surprised at how long I have stayed given how terrible it is. Even leaving - they have made it so difficult - my new provider will do it / i should have done it - here is a bill for last month even though you thought you'd left etc. Good news when you're really messed around they offer you a £15 voucher towards a bill that you don't think you should be paying anyway!

    Overall a poor expereance. The low light was when something went wrong with my pings/latency and it was near impossible to get in touch with their technical helpdesk and even when I did they were utterly unable to help. In the end moving provider was easier than taking to another offshore call centre.

    A completely useless customer service set up. Liars and cheats.
    Supposed to buyout previous bb contract but wriggle and duck and dive. Passed from pillar to post. They churn YOUR cash and are basically money launderers. Fraudsters.

    Terrible, when first installed the connection was poor, I called customer services and they said I should buy a booster. I live in a town so not exactly in the sticks. Ive been having problems again lately and they said they needed to send an engineer out. Failed to show twice, had to wait in half a day both times. Now on hold and have been for 40 mins trying to get through. To put salt in the wound they issued my bill today.

    I was offered the home broadband and tv package switching from Sky to EE. Well the activation date was supposed to be 1 week ago. All they managed to do was switch off my previous broadband and phone line and tell me my order had been cancelled with no explanation. I then get a new activation date for 2 weeks later and they then contact me one week later telling me that the order was unsuccesful. Have spoken to at least 10 people trying to sort it out but its not worth the hassle I have given up, cancelled the order and will now be getting BT.

    My issue with EE is the very poor service when dealing with a telephone landline fault. The relationship between EE and BT appears to be very unreliable as it took over 2 weeks to resolve a straightforward defect. All evidence of the fault pointed to the exchange but this was not tackled until 2 home visits and persistent pleading from me to the 150 help desk.

    Do not get involved with EE or Orange, not only is their customer service dreadful, the whole company ethos seems to be about trickery and broken promises rather than providing a service worth paying for, save yourself a lot of trouble and go somewhere else.

    Slow speeds even on fibre. Cut out frequently for no reason. Once cut out for days and getting customer services to help was more painful than pulling my one teeth. Rude customer service who can never help. Hidden charges upon leaving despite being out of contract. Just awful.

    If you have the misfortune of getting the Indian call centre (ICC) EE customer service are painful. A call will take twice the normal amount of time it would otherwise.
    Connection was awful - broadband kept buffering on all devices
    After calling to complain the ICC cut the connection for our BB completely.
    EE ARE TRULY BT LEVEL APPALLING FOR BROADBAND. FOUND SKY FAR FAR BETTER

    Switched across to EE a year ago as I had my mobile with them.
    Positives:
    + Price was good at the time
    Negatives:
    - Customer service is poor. I had to call twice for a mac code today. Second time took 25 mins mostly on hold and the cust retention team effectively told me I was lying about having called earlier in the year about broadband speed!
    - Struggled to get 2mb speeds when TalkTalk were usually 5-6mb.
    - The router was poor as well, couldn't get reception one room across unless the door was open.

    Everyone makes mistakes, but don't call your customers a liar!

    I am frustrated and felt cheated with the kind of service EE provides.

    I moved house and broadband connection in the new house is couple of weeks away. So I went to EE to get a monthly broadband and told them I need it for a 2 weeks only. The minimum plan they had was for 1 month which I opted for and told them I don;'t need this to be active beyond 1 month.

    The sales representative told me that I can call customer care to cancel my connection post my first payment is deducted, which would be after 14 days of my connection activation. I did the same thing but now the customer care is saying I have to pay for another month as they would need atleast 30 days notice as per T&Cs. Also they have a cancellation fees of 8.99.

    All these were not mentioned to me by their sales representation when I went to discuss the option in the store. I mean who reads 4 pager T&Cs in the store before signing the document. It should be the sales representative's responsibilty to make customer aware of cancellation process and fees, which clearly wasn't done in this case.

    Please avoid them as they are bunch of cheaters sitting their and making fool of customers.

    I recently joined EE broadband and that was my biggest mistake i ever made. My line didn't go live when it was meant to. I had to keep ringing them. Every time i have rang them customer service has been very poor and it has taken average of 40 mins to get through a customer service. I thought Talktalk was bad but EE are even worse then Talktalk. Wouldn't advise anyone to join them. I am very disappointed with the service

    Absolutely rubbish. Struggle to watch BBC I player, stopping every 10 - 20 seconds buffering.
    Internet connection keeps dropping out.
    11 more months of this rubbish.!
    Can't contact customer service any way except on the phone were you are on hold for 20 mins. Then you get a foreign call centre! They can never help. Help me please.

    Worst customer service ever, never been so frustrated about EE. Starting on 22/3/2015, frequent disconnect on network and called customer service. After all the rubbish standard of procedure of checking and testing line, which cost 40 minutes EVERYTIME, and you require an engineer to visit, but customer service you called are not able to direct them because they are outsourced. Ok, they will call us back tomorrow.

    One day later, they called, test connection again, they said ok to schedule a engineer but need to call us back to confirm. I was at work and wont be able to spend 45minutes on hold. I missed one call, and I call them again, they need to start everything from 0, from tier 1 customer service test connection and said give me a call later.

    Missing 1 call and you bounce back to zero? I have wasted 3 hours talking to robots from sunday, till now I still have not yet been able to schedule an engineer to look at it. I have changed a 50 pound router, new filter, new cables just to ensure it is beyond our control.

    Worst customer service ever. How can this company still exist in this generation...

    PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM EE OTHERWISE YOU'LL PROBABLY FACE THE SAME...Very poor speed and drops in connection. When you phone up they are useless giving you diffrent stories and making you go round in circles. They took a month to fix my brodband after it just stopped working. Un-believeable how they get away with such rubbish service and jeep your money. I'm changing as I write this review.

    Really bad, barely had it few day now and hardly had any signal from my broadband at all. I was promised of a good and reliable router with the signal speed of 19 to 23mbps, all I could get is 100 to 30kbps (old dialup strength) to put it bluntly it is dreadful considering I work in the video games industry which requires me use the internet to move and upload lots of data around. If anyone is looking wireless broadband I highly recommend you avoid EE's bright box simple horrible I only wished I stayed with BT I never had this problem with them.

    We bought an 18 month deal up front at the same speed as our previous broadband deal (~20MB), which is perfect for us as 2 people living in a small flat, only using the internet for streaming SD videos. The speed is abysmal since we switched, and regularly drops to below 1MB. EE have tried to fix this my playing around with our router settings remotely, but we really haven't been happy with the service at all! It just keeps happening, and we cant even load the speed test website sometimes, let alone watch videos! On top of this, they raised the charge by £2 a month a few months after we joined, when we thought we were getting a fixed price deal by paying for 18 months up front. Really disappointed!

    Have been without broadband for 3 weeks and service still not restored. Spent MANY hours on phone already and 4 visits from Openreach engineer which have taken up 5 hour sliots for each. Warning that £50.00 penalty would be imposed if equipment at home is found to be the problem.
    Long delays each time I call with assurances that they pride their excellent service. One return call promised faithfully but not fulfilled and one promise to supply replacement route by return not honoured. Personnel appear to be helpful but no progress has been made. The Management need to know these problems and take positive action to provide acceptable level of service.
    We have two mobile phones from EE and receive low level of internet access or occasionally no service. All this living within 4 miles of a major city centre and less than 1 kilometre from the control unit. Decisive action required or replacement of senior staff who CAN DO and justify their positions.

    I switched to EE as I was having problem with TALK TALK. The presentation was great: good salesman, UK based call center: so we signed.

    We left as EE turnt out to be worse than Talk Talk.

    BROADBAND: it kept dropping out and the speed kept dropping. After 6 o clock and on weekends, we were not even able to stream movies. We had to call Tech Support each time and after going through their painful troubleshot procedure (which include checking the same things every time despite having checked already 20 times) the speed was back to normal only for a few days - then again painfully slow.

    CUSTOMER SERVICE - although their customer service is UK based, when you go to TECH support the support is based in India or Pakistan. There is nothing wrong with that, as long as it is but the line was bad and there is a 2 second delay which makes talking really hard. We had to scream on the phone and sometimes was really hard to understand each other.

    So...not a good experience for us :)

    I have been with EE for the past four years! And how do they re-pay you for loyalty? - By constant price increase and decrease in their service!

    When I first ordered EE - I had 17MB broadband speed with no issues, no disconnections, no problems. I was really happy with it!

    After the contract ended the price increased and broadband speed dropped to 15mb. Year later price increased again and broadband speed dropped to 12mb. This year price increased again, and the speed dropped to 6MB.

    They do not watch their lines for faults at all. If your connections drops you will have to prove them its their fault, as they will never admit it. If you contact them by mail, answer will arrive just about a week later.

    If you are with EE and your contract ended, change the provider, as your service will drop and they just don't care about you no more.

    I had enough, switched the provider last week.

    The internet connection goes from 6.69 to 18.52 Mb without warning, that is when I do not loose connection. I have notified EE several time with this problem without getting a resolution to it. FYI they advertise up to 76Mb per second in my area!!! But the monthly charge remains the same... Of course

    I was supposed to have a 4GB max sum plan that I could use abroad, however, they never set me up for abroad roaming so now my phone is set to the wrong time and I can't text, call or use data abroad. It's annoying as I don't even get the he message to confirm i'm in another country. The workers also don't know what the he here talking about. I asked about my plan and they said it wasn't for abroad, yet when I checked it was. I called again and they said it was. They have no idea what they are telling thwir customers and are not fully educated in what they inform. It's devestating.

    Avoid EE broadband. Worst WiFi I’ve ever had. Constantly drops connection even to devices in the next room from the router. Parents also have EE broadband in a different area and they’ve had exactly the same experience.

    We changed from BT as they offered the same speed for a much lower price. We are supposed to be getting 35 Mb/s however from speed tests done at various times I struggle to get 5 ... most getting 2-3. EE themselves have tested it and got 6 ... at 11am on a weekday. They have sent two engineers, neither of whom know how to fix the problem and have said it's probably because the cable has broken a few times so they have made new connections and each connection reduces the speed. So why weren't we told this before hand?? Why are we paying for 30+ and not even getting 5! I can't play any xbox games online as it is sooo lagging. I can't watch a 30s video without it buffering 10 times. EE have royally f****d us over.

    So very disappointed with EE broadband. They have made it clear they are not big players as a supplier. We regularly get new routers - the light box that doesn't last long. Very awful. Cannot wait til the contract ends - we will be leaving EE broadband. Please, if you have not yet bought EE broadband then DON'T!!! Waste of time, money and effort.

    If you want to sit for hours staring at things loading then this is ideal for you, however if you actually want to recieve a service your actually paying for like reliable broadband speeds then dont bother with EE and thats saying alot as ive been with talk talk previous and let me tell you they were 100x better at providing a good relatively fast speed. EE is so pittifully slow that ut would actually be faster to go down to the local library and use books to find the answet to anything you may need. 0/5!!!!!!

    I was sold this package, told that I would receive 3 months free and free installation. Neither of which have materialized, setting me back £75. I have been in store 3 times to try and get this sorted and have called the broadband customer services team a number of times. Every time there is a 'new' procedure that can be tried, or I have to contact the other option (so the store send me to the phone broadband team or vice versa). Plainly put it's a nightmare. The speed is OK (not great) and the reliability is poor, over the WiFi even though the router is on my desk the connection keeps dropping. Have to use a wire for my devises that have that option. I would stay away at all costs! Still chasing, will edit if I get any joy.

    Unbelievable, i wan't to upgrade to fibre optic, spend 10min on phone going through all the particulars, then right at the end he says "you have to have a mobile phone with us to get fibre optic" what the hell has a mobile phone got anything to do with fibre optic broadband. The mind boggles, my contract runs out in August so will sign up with someone else...
