What are EE like?

not too bad, but connection seems slow when streaming HD movies...although it could be an isolated issue with my service I suppose.

I have never contacted customer service so cant comment on that.

I personally will be looking to change to virgin in a few months purely because of this... as I know theyre internet is superb, although obviously it is more exspensive.

for general browsing, I cant see any problem with EE, and their service is 100% better than talk talk in my experience.

Many thanks.

with the casback and for £30 for a year, you cant go wrong though...very good deal

i got half price line install £30 great deal and seems very fast out the box. a bit of problem getting router delivered but all good so far day 2

I have 9 months experience with them. This is my experience... When you first take it out it's very fast streaming movies is straight slow. After 1 month EVERYTHING SLOWS DOWN!!

Then once you complain which I'm sure every single customer has. They set you at a normal pace .

Remember you get what you pay for. Better than talk talk tho

I got this in May still waiting for cashback. broadband speed very slow. do not get fooled by cheap price like me. can't wait to cancel my contract as soon as i get cashback

Im still looking for another broadband provider... mine is SKY which was originally O2..
so slow... now sons home from uni... hes constantly calling them up to try and get them to up the speed... they do so..depending on who u speak to... then it goes back to normal after a day or two..

I moved from Sky to take advantage of this deal. Whilst it may be very cheap, in this instance you really do get what you pay for. I was estimated 14mb on the 16mb line I took out but at most am getting 7mb.
It is much slower than this in reality especially during peak hours and streaming is pretty poor.
If you use P2P then don;t bother. EE throttle these speeds to pretty much nothing so for a significant chunk of the week you will not be able to use it. This occurs during peak hours which is 4.30pm til 1am weekdays and 1.30pm til 1am weekends.

They don't "up your speed" when you call them temporarily!

You get the maximum speed your line can handle.


Go and check your laptop and pcs for spyware, spam ware, torrent servers etc..

HOT......signed up in July and quidco was paid out last week.......bargain

I've been with them since the beginning of the year and my broadband connection is absolutely fine, the speed hasn't changed since the day I was connected.

Also been with them 6+ months (got the same deal when it was slightly cheaper and free installation - though had to buy a £5 we simcard which is great for orange wednesdays) without any problems, with pretty okay speeds for streaming videos (and almost no complaints from my son for online gaming either).......effectively ~£1.50/month for broadband, phone and free off-peak calls!!

Just done a test 16.43 1.08 15ms. Ive not had any problems. I download about 30gb p2p a month, which is plenty to watch. Though if i was downloading hd it might be worse.Then loads of podcasts, youtube and im on my laptop browsing a lot of the time. I do live alone so maybe its noticeable with a family.

it was £136.5 cashback and £2 a month for internet. After the year it used to say £4 a month but now its £10 so probably wont stay.

Price wise, this is a good deal. However, from my personal experience with EE broadband, I'd steer well clear. Had 6 months of terrible service, constant dropouts, 3 routers, hours of phonecalls to tech support, BT engineers, muckups, which all resulted in a resounding "Hmm, we haven't got a clue why it's not working properly" at which point they let me out of my contract and gave me my money back. Switched back to Sky and it's been bang on ever since.

Quite happy with my EE FTTC broadband. Often have two x boxes, work lappy VPN, IP Camera, ipad all on the go in the house and copes fine. The Bright Box is great and I am using Powerlines as a network. Offered me a conversion deal from LLU to FTTC and stayed with them.

And initially when I took LLU 3 years ago they paid quidco twice so I got £240 back!

a friend of mine is waiting to migrate over to them with this from a few weeks back. so far hes saying that CS is terrible.
when speaking to Orange side of staff, they are really helpful, but the moment EE get involded, the CS is terrible.

If the friend is waiting to migrate over, surely they are getting what they are paying for (i.e. nothing, as they haven't switched to EE yet and surely aren't paying them anything).

That said, I have a friend in a similar boat (i.e. waiting for connection). I suspect EE have been snowed under in recent weeks as I've seen this offer touted around in a number of forums and as its of the "too good to be true" type, they would have had a lot of fish biting.

Wouldn't go back to EE if they offered broadband for free

you do realise EE and Orange staff are the same people? they deal with all 3 brands

Anyone joined using the Martins money tips deal where you get this for same price but get a £120 Amazon voucher?

Wondered if anyone knew if you need to spend the whole voucher in one go?

Don't bother with EE. You will regret it. Poor Customer Service, and Technical Support teams who do not know understand the significance of upstream rates and then tell you to play about with uPnP settings in hope that it will cure my connectivity issues! Avoid!

I signed up in June under a similar offer. All I can say is if you are considering EE then don't! Terrible speed and appalling customer service, nothing but problems from the start and and still not resolved almost 3 months down the line.

its a great deal. I am on it. TCP paid 136.50.

Its ok for normal surfing, smart tvs, but having cap on torrents, so you will only able to download torrent night time

I see that it's Quidco rather than Topcashback, but it's almost identical to the deal I posted a couple of weeks ago:

hotukdeals.com/dea…563

Anyone know if I join Quidco today will I be able to get the cashback?

Appreciate advice, thanks guys

Could someone help me, I am new to Quidco. Where do you find the number to call? The Quidco link just directs to an online payment.

Thanks in advance!

don't buy anyone its rubbish internet speed signal everything ...don,t buy .....

yeah you can start shopping with cashback deals straight away.

I joined EE in April, taking out their Fibre. The odd thing is their speed throughput is absolutely fine, but the connection speed (latency?) is slow, sometimes times out and I need to refresh. Chrome gets stuck showing 'Resolving Host'. They said my landline has problem and raised a fault with Openreach to sort it out. Not sure if they are relevant but remains to be seen ...

Yes, you can join and start earning cash back from same day - but need to go to ee website via the quidco webpage (and clear your previous cookies on your computer, etc - quidco has simple instructions on their website). If you PM me, i would be happy to 'introduce' you to quidco if you don't have a friend doing so already (they give me £10 for the intro:).....

I'm currently moving to EE - there is a few bad stories from a customer service perspective and they do throttle you at peak times. However, for £40 for the year what on earth do you expect? Based on what I am currently paying (£24 pcm) I will save loads so if it is a really crap service i'll just pay it off and move to a different provider. Nothing lost.

Also, through Money Saving Expert there is a similar deal but you get a £120 Amazon voucher instead of the cashback. Due to any potential issues with the cashback tracking etc. I went with this one.

I can live with that, I am in the process of moving to EE. What is classed as their 'night time'?

I'm trying to join Quidco and it asks if I want to join using Paypal. Should I do this or just join with a credit card?

If I join using Paypal, how do I get the cashback? Thanks for help guys.

I had also seen negative feedback (incl. re. throttling high users at peak time). but from my last 6 months' fairly positive experience (during peak times too), there must be variations based on location or something.....and its not as if others provide much better service, and certainly not at ~£2/mo (net cost after cash back!!) for broadband, line rental and free off-peak calls....

You may get a bit more cash back if you link your PayPal/quidco - but so far I haven't bothered (so you can join without any PayPal at all)
