The results are in again for another year, and they have never looked better for our partners EE. That’s because on the 29th of July, they were named the UK’s no.1 5G network, AND the UK’s best network for seven years running. According to the latest independent testing by RootMetrics, EE’s 5G offers fastest speeds and best coverage, with the highest 5G availability in all 16 major UK cities tested. That’s Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds and Bradford, Leicester, London, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, and Sheffield.
Independent analysis of 5G reliability, speed and coverage found EE’s 5G network to be the no. 1 in the UK, offering 5G in more places than any other UK network. Tests reveal that EE’s highest 5G availability is more than double that of the next placed operator. In London, EE’s 5G availability is over five times greater than all other operators. RootMetrics’ ‘availability’ measure shows how often devices connected to 5G during data testing across each city.
EE continues to dominate in UK wide overall mobile network testing, winning six RootScore Awards outright – overall performance, reliability, accessibility, speed, data and call – and taking joint first for text. EE’s network achieved the fastest aggregate median speed of all operators at 42.6 Mbps, and its aggregate median speeds in England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland were faster than all the other networks tested.
And that’s why we’re 5GEE!
