BT in talks to purchase EE

The fight, we thought, was between O2 and EE for the pot of money being waved around by BT. There was also some discussion that Three were possibly going to make a surprise outside purchase of either one to consolidate their holdings. It seemed to make sense

Orange Wednesdays – It’s all over

A lot of people chose EE and, previously, Orange, because of the Orange Wednesdays offer. It gave you two seats in your local cinema for the price of one and, if you got enough codes, you could take the entire family for half the price. EE continued

EE to fill in the rural gaps with a micro network

Getting connectivity when you’re in a rural area is a challenge. My weekend of train journeys only served to highlight the fact that beautiful countryside usually means a complete lack of signal. EE are to tackle this with a new idea that doesn’t require cabling, planning permission

Browse and travel at high speed with EE

There are some of us who get to travel through the channel tunnel on a jaunt, whether it be a full-on holiday or just a day trip. Others have to pass through on a business trip, but whatever your reason for needing to be inside the tunnel,

EE releases new version of their in-car WiFi solution

In May EE announced a new in-car WiFi solution called Buzzard. Plop it into your cigarette lighter and it’ll beam out a WiFi hotspot for the kids to connect their tablets / phones / iPods to in the back of the car on a long journey. Now

Real-world testing – EE LTE-Advanced in London

EE recently announced the launch of their upgraded LTE-Advanced network here in London. This runs at a maximum of 300Mbps with real-world max speeds of 150Mbps promised and a realistic 90Mbps during the day. Vodafone also launched their service in London with the same speed expected. But

New 999 mobile location system could help save lives

Have you ever been unfortunate enough to have to dial 999 from your mobile? 60,000 people per day or 22 million a year call the emergency services from a mobile telephone (is it me or is that number absolutely vast?) and it is pretty much nailed on

EE launch EETV in stores now

Gone are the days when your mobile network only delivered calls and texts. The introduction of 3G and 4G and technology added more ways to interact and now EE have pushed things further with a TV gadget to deliver your favourite shows. Their recently-announced TV service is

EE crank up the speed even further. 4G+ live in London now

Remember that “4G on steroids” that Vodafone announced a couple of weeks back? Well now it’s the turn of EE, who are deploying the 4G+, aka LTE-A in London (Vodafone are calling it 4.5G). It’s now live at 150 sites across the capital and, if you’ve got

EE Osprey – Review

EE recently announced a range of new mobile connected devices including a new tablet called Eagle, an in-car WiFi option called Buzzard and this new MiFi – the Osprey. Whilst in London for a few days I was given the opportunity to try out one of these and see

Free data on EE every month

OK now, don’t get too excited, it’s not a great deal of data but still, this is worth investigating if you’re thinking of getting a tablet as a gift. It’s only 100MB, but if you have a tablet or phone that mostly lives near a WiFi hotspot

EE confirm that they’ll be carrying the new iPads

Shortly after the all-new iPads. Both the super-slim new iPad Air 2 (which is just 6.1mm) and the new iPad Mini 3 will be arriving on EE. Both devices will be the WiFi and cellular versions and will be arriving on the superfast 4G network. No prices

EE now also do a cheap 4G tablet as well

Yesterday we heard that Vodafone were offering a cheap 4G tablet for pay as you go customers, today not to be outdone EE have announced that they’ll be selling the slightly cheaper and slightly smaller Alcatel One Touch Pop S. Which can be yours for £99.99 and

Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 available Friday

This one got slipped under the doormat by our friends at Samsung. A new version of their Ace will be hitting the streets on Friday and you’ll be able to get it from Samsung direct or EE and O2. Let’s cut to the chase shall we? It’s

HTC RE priced up – To be available at EE too

If you’ve seen our coverage of the new digital camera from HTC you’ll probably want to know just how much it’ll cost. We were hoping for it to be around the £99.99 mark, but it looks to be a tad more expensive than that. The orange model

EE Launch their own TV system

A set-top box still isn’t unusual, even with the large amount of clever TVs on the market. Sky, YouView, Virgin and others already have their own solutions already, but now it’s the turn of EE, who have just announced their own. This particular one is pretty clever

Need more data on EE SIM only? Good luck!

EE recently updated their SIM only contracts giving more data for a limited time, the highest being 10GB a month which is still way short of the 20GB and 50GB options with a 2 year contract. Whilst adding more data is good for everyone, we have just

More 4G! MORE!

Yes, it’s the regular 4G update from who else, but EE. Today is October 1st, so with the dark nights hitting us, it’s time to get some speedy t’internet on our phones so that we have something to do on the cold bus ride home. Coverage now

58 Phones 4u stores to be taken over by EE

Following news that Vodafone are to take on 140 Phones 4u stores and save around 900 jobs, EE has confirmed to us that they will have a further 58 of the stores. This move should save another 359 jobs, and with our rough calculations (800 jobs saved

Phones 4u – Could it rise from the flames?

Could Phones 4u still be saved? A last minute plan is being put into motion to swap some of the money owed to creditors for equity. If EE and Vodafone agree to the plan and start supplying contracts again, it could mean that all jobs are saved.
