New EE Max SIM Only Plans and speed and ping

0
Found 26th Feb
I see that EE have done away with their Max SIM Only Plans.

There is now a £2/month add-on to get the fastest 4G speeds and £10/month to use in the additional four countries (outside the EU).

My questions:

1. Do EE really cap speeds on different plans or is it somewhat a marketing ploy? Are they hard capping the speeds or just prioritising devices on the network?

2. I've found that when using my data SIM in Australia and the USA, the network speeds are fine, but the ping is bad eg around 600ms. Is this because they are routing traffic back through the UK? When I do a speedtest.net test it will show my closest server in the UK. So ultimately roaming outside the EU can be a little slow anyway.
