An excellent choice for occasional use / replacement for home broadband
Having cancelled my BT landline (and the broadband associated with it), this has become the perfect solution for me as a low data user in a simple household. 6GB spread over 90 days gives me 2GB per month which is plenty for me, so for weekly web surfing, online banking, general browsing, email use, online shopping, kids homework etc, this is perfect.
Following the merger of Orange and T-mobile to make EE, EE have really improved their network and data speeds. For me, EE running on 3G through a mi-fi hub at home, data speeds are very good and were on-par with my BT broadband speed. EE shows little slow down are rarely drop outs, even at peak times, which is great! Upload speeds are many times faster than my BT broadband.
Remember this is MOBILE BROADBAND, so results will vary locally and is totally dependent on the strength of the EE signal where your device is being used, but for me, at my home where it gets used most of the time, this was the best performing network out of all of the UK networks by far.
While the network can physically do it, I don't recommend streaming TV, watching YouTube videos, downloading films or watching catchup TV with this, as the 6GB data will be consumed very quickly.
This is also perfect for putting in a Mi-Fi hub and taking away with you on holiday, or for the kids use in the car on the way there. It will work abroad too, so it will mean no roaming charges when abroad because its prepaid.
When I first started buying these in early 2016, I paid less than £12.00 on eBay. The prices now are around £18.00 for exactly the same, so demand has clearly risen.
