Just had a call from EE as I signed up to a new mobile contract with them yesterday, they were trying to upsell their 4G broadband. I told her not to bother as I am on Virgin so nothing can touch them on speed and she told me that I could currently get a guaranteed 330Mbps on their home broadband (mobile broadband rather than fibre) and if that speed wasn't met an engineer would be sent to install a booster that will boost my mobile coverage as well as broadband speed. She said it is 4G at the moment then when 5G rolls out I can upgrade, 100GB of data for £35/month which is a lot cheaper than my Virgin bills and there is no need for a landline.
I think she has got her wires crossed, when I asked her about the guaranteed 330Mbps and said I don't think that's achieveable on 4G she said they have been testing and managed 1Gbps but surely she must be talking about 5G. The EE site says it hits an average of 31Mbps and I read this on the 4G info site:
Might be something that can benefit anyone who is in a decent mobile reception area but has been left out of FTTC/FTTP plans. I'll be looking into the latency and reliability compared to cable and if 5G launches here may make the move.Image result for 4g maximum speeds
4G offers maximum real-world download speeds up 60Mbps, making it over 20 times faster than 3G. Theoretical maximum 4G speeds are significantly higher at 300Mbps, although such speeds are only achievable in controlled laboratory environments.
