    wow - can't believe what an incompetent company this is. No-one has any idea what they are doing!! 1 month paying and still no connection!! Sending out engineers without letting us know so we're unable to meet with them. Wasting my time every day. Never knowing whats going on...i'm done.

    Reported buffering problem Customer service very helpful & arranged for Openreach to visit as they said I had a problem near my home. They came & checked the whole of my house & said they would come back. Customer service called to ask how they had done & they booked a call out for following day - stayed in whole day & NO ONE came from OPENREACH - no phone call to apologise for not turning up & no call back from EE. I think they just want you to go away !!!!

    Compared to BT, I am so glad I switched. When my BT renewal came up, BT was so unhelpful, would not move on price and would only offer 18 months rather than a 1 year contract I was on. I asked the BT adviser what the early termination would be and she said it was another department and could not say, and would only know how much if and when I ended the contract. This was just stupid, she could not tell me the T&Cs she is asking me to sign... terrible. Most ask for about 40-50% of the full contract, so no wonder they are all pushing people to longer term contracts.
    Decided I needed to change even though it is a monopoly all back by BT OpenReach's infrastructure , and BT own several of the other providers anyhow.
    Called EE and they have been nothing but helpful and honest. Said they have been improving their call centres to keep & win customers, since you need to differentiate when the product is the same, and it shows. The speed is a bit lower (55Mb) than my BT connection (70Mb) but had a long chat with them and believe it will be resolved once line settles down (been just 2 days). The other provided will need to up their game and focus on customer service, EE's is very good so far and not dodge my many questions.

    Worst broadband i have ever experienced. Being I loyal EE mobile user, I decided to try their broadband.Apart from getting 5Gb data boost, theres nothing positive to it.It keeps disconnecting and the speed is terrible at night time.If you are thinking of getting their broadband, please don't. you will regret the decision.

    Speed is terrible atm, very hit and miss and constant dragging, freezing and crashing from eight o' clock at night onwards, after a smooth period of no problems for over a year. It costs a small fortune as well. I'd leave but have read so many horror stories about how complicated switching is and how mafia-esque phone companies can get about it. I haven't used EE customer services so cannot comment on that (I just put 3/5 because it's midway/neutral) but the service overall is unreliable and frustrating.

    Overall EE is a company that usually lets you down when you need customer service whether it is about intermittent broadband service or equipment (e.g. cable) that they are meant to deliver but doesn't arrive or even looking into a bill query.

    cut me of for no reason at all joined sky and they keep sending letters asking for £11 21 saying they have disconnect my services and close my account and giving me 30 days to pay this amount before they take further action to recover the outstanding debt wich may include referring my account to a dept collector I wrote a letter back to them saying they had already disconnected my internet and landline saying when I rang them that someone with a different phone number had canceled my contract with and ask me to set another contract up with them and said it would take 14 days but they would reconnect me within 7 days I canceled the contract the next day and joined sky in theory they ee still owe me money because I was paid up every month sky router is far better than ee and the only time I had any thing to do with ee was by phone or email sky sent me all the contract papers and in my eyes a far better the ee who are a bunch of crooks

    Constant issues with speed and quality through contract. Trying to get through to customer service is like pulling teeth. The speed never came near what was advertised and we had very few weekends where we weren't throttled, again - not what was advertised. Avoid.

    Switched over from very reliable Sky ISDN, because of the 10GB mobile data offer. Took over 2 weeks to settle down - constant dropouts/speed issues etc. Infuriating, compared to top providers. But a month on, the speed is constantly 20 mbps (advertised as 13),and the router/modem seems to have a better range than the cheapo Sky box. Seems a good bargain for £21 (so far). Haven't had to talk to customer support, as yet.

    Initially my contact was for a complaint relating to one of their authorised online sellers called Metrophone. When I tried contacting them their telephone number was not in use, so I tried cancelling the purchase. Eventually I was in contact with a guy called Daniel in the exec team at EE, and credit where it is due, he was brilliant. I was so impressed I decided to take out my broadband with them, but I told him I had read some bad reviews about waiting time for equipment and connection. He sent me a mobile Internet device with data FREE of charge for the interim peroid. Four months later, Daniel had left the business and EE have used the direct debit set up for my mobile phone and taken £45 for the FREE device (my mobile phone contract was £14 per month)! I struggled to get my money back and I am now in deadlock. The exec team have passed me from pillar to post! One of the team actually made threats towards me, suggesting that if I don't agree to their resolution suggestions, they will revoke the resolution deal from the original complaint back in December! Absolutely appalled at the handling of THEIR mistake! Be warned .... they cannot be trusted with access to your bank account! The bank did get the £45 back, but I would not pay anything by direct debit to this company ever again!

    I was an EE mobile customer and the service has always been excellent, I received an email from EE offering a deal on their fibre broadband and, as a mobile customer I would get 10mb of free data on my mobile. It also came at the same time sky put up its prices.

    Having switched to EE fibre (easiest and best part) I have now had to visits from bt openreach to try and resolve the poor speed issues the last one on Tuesday the engineer was here for almost 2hrs, rewired the house, the connection in the cabinet but, still the speed is no better used to get 34mbps from sky now I can only get 18mbps down the same phone line! BT say it’s an issue with EE, EE says its BT.

    Worst service ever.

    The mobile network I found to be very good
    so because of this we got EE broadband hoping for the same quality
    No it is so un-reliable and i usually find it cut out at least twice a night and even when it does work it is slow compared to other broadbands
    it is a scam
    I was applauded by the low quality and after reporting the issue many times and still no improvement or any action on there part at all I am disgusted
    I hope anyone considering EE will learn from my mistake and go to BT

    I decided to go with EE broadband after reading external reviews online. I was kept up to date throughout and everything came in time for the switchover.
    I have been pleasantly surprised by both speed and reliability, I did have an initial problem of devices not connecting but once I spoke to their technical support via a video call, it was found that I had placed the router in a poor location. Once I had moved this, everything worked perfectly and all devices connect well
    The speed is good and close to advertised (Fibre - I am still within the 10 day adjustment period) and have had no problems with connections since then. Customer support was quick and I got through to someone within 2 minutes both times and found them very helpful

    Is the worst seevice ever. I had problems all the time! The connection was dropping at every 5 minutes. I used to call them at every 3 weeks and they were sending me engineer. And i asked them to cancel my contract and they took me again money for another month of no service. Awful!

And when I have called I’ve been told that the WiFi needs to have a problem at the time I call so that they can see the issue. They also refuse to help you unless all your bills are up to date even if you have a payment plan. I wouldn’t even recommend this company to my dog

    I’ve been with EE three years now, had some issues with sky before and it was a pain to speak to their Indian support.
    Had an issue once with EE when switching from sky, had to call them a few times, they’ve fixed it and gave me one month free. I’ve had fibre, then fibre plus, now I’ve signed up for fibre plus again.
    It’s easy to contact them, at 8:30am I had to wait for consultant about 7 min but then around 12:30pm they’ve picked up straight away.
    Sky would be £3 cheaper monthly but I’m staying with EE as it was always fine for the last three years.

    I have been a customer for many many years and now decided to change provider. Customer service difficult to reach, I had twice my broadband speed reviewed and "rectified" however it'still very slow, certainly always much slower than contracted, a smooth streaming or quick downloading is nearly impossible. I live in the centre of London when having a good broadband should not be an issue

    I received a cold call to join EE broadband a year ago on a 18 month contract. I was told that it would be "cheaper & faster" than my sky broadband I had at the time which was giving me download speeds of around 10Mbps.

    I agreed to join - paying a severance fee to Sky.

    Unfortunately, since I switched over the internet speeds were very slow <1Mbps and sometimes the internet completely dropped. I raised the issue multiple times with EE and did all that they said to remedy this. It was always slow and the drops in connections kept happening.

    Ultimately, after a while EE sent an engineer who was able to get me speeds of up to 6Mbps (albeit for a short time) but the drops in connection got worse. I was fed up and kept raising the issue.

    Finally, at end of December I asked to leave the contract without paying the severance. They said that is not possible and I need to give a formal notice of leave and then they have 30 days to try and fix the issue. I did that.

    They sent someone round and tried a few things but the issue wasn't solved. I gave my notice at end of Jan and EE informed me I need to pay the severance fee. Their explanation was that the issue that I raised was "fixed" when they put in a solution and any future issues I have are treated as a new issue and hence for their part they have fixed my issue. I have raised more than 15 issues in the time I was contracted to EE - all of which are apparently closed. And because of this I am to pay a severance fee when I leave EE.

    To top it off they have the nerve to call me yesterday to incentivise me to stay with them. You can guess what my reply was!

    Wel’ EE broadband is one of the worst service provider in uk so far everyone knows.
    I been with them nearly 3 years as I had no choice but at the end I did terminate the contract without pay as I stopped direct debit .
    i don’t care what action they will take as EE didn’t care about my service.
    Usually EE customer service are very poor.
    Finally ,I do request everyone not to take EE.
