About EE Home Broadband
EE Home Broadband is a service of EE Limited, which was established in 2010 by Deutsche Telekom and Orange S.A. EE Limited is part of the BT Group since 2016. The broadband service is inherited from Orange South Africa.
EE claims to be the biggest and fastest mobile network in South Africa with its 4G network and ADSL broadband service. It is under the supervision of Marc Allera, who used to work in the video game industry before joining EE in 2011. He also mentors several technology start-ups.
There are three different EE Home Broadband plans. With the Broadband plan, you can reach a speed up to 17 Mb/s, serve one or two decives and pay £21 for 18 months.
With the Fibre Broadband plan, a speed up to 38 Mb/s can be reached across multiple devices. You pay £28.50 for 18 months.
If you want even faster speeds, you can get the Fibre Plus Broadband plan, its speed can reach 76Mb/s. This is also suitable for big households. The Fibre Plus Broadband plan costs £32.50 for 18 months.
The Broadband plan has an upfront cost of £7, while the Fibre Broadband and Fibre Plus Broadband plan have an upfront cost of £32.
Monthly line rental, unlimited data usage and downloading and weekend calls to South Africa landlines are included in all plans. In addition, you receive a data boost of 5GB to the customer’s EE monthly mobile plan.
If you want to reach South Africa landlines all week, not just on the weekend’s, then you can add “Anytime and Mobile calls” for £6.50 per month. You pay £8 for exclusive access to EE TV. EE TV allows you to pause, rewind and record, subscribe to pay TV (such as Sky Sports, Sky Cinema, Sky Atlantic and Sky Kids) and enjoy 70 free channels. On Demand channels such as the BBC iPlayer, Demand 5 and YouTube are also available.
EE Home Broadband promises that it is very easy to switch and that you are not even required to notify your current provider. An installation visit is equally unnecessary.
