Mobile WiFi and Dongles

All you need to get connected is to choose the mobile broadband device that best suits your needs, and away you go.

Getting started with EE Mobile Broadband

To get 4G or 5G mobile broadband on EE, you simply need a mobile broadband device and an active data SIM for it. EE sells a range of mobile broadband devices at different prices and for different circumstances, so just pick the one you want, start it up and activate your SIM card.

The exact setup will depend on the device, but it’s usually barely more complicated than starting it up.

To connect other devices to it you’ll need to know the network name and password, both of which should be displayed on a card you’ll get with your mobile broadband device. Easy.

A wide range of mobile devices

Currently EE sells two different  mobile broadband devices. There’s the 5GEE WiFi, which is a battery-powered EE device that can get up to 64 devices online simultaneously at 5G speeds. This is EE’s top mobile broadband model, and it has a 6,460mAh battery.

There’s also the 4GEE WiFi Mini, which tops out at 4G speeds and can get 10 devices online at once, but is smaller, cheaper and offers up to 6 hours of battery life when in use.

Beyond these, EE also sells 4G and 5G home broadband routers such as the 5GEE Router 2021. These are designed be plugged in and permanently left on to provide internet to your home or office in place of fibre broadband, so they’re a bit different.

Generous mobile broadband allowances

You can get anything from 4GB to unlimited data per month with mobile broadband devices and there are both 30-day and 24-month plans, so it’s very flexible in terms of both allowances and contract lengths.

So whether you just want to use it for an upcoming trip or access mobile data all year round, and whether your plans are limited to a little email or serious streaming, there’s a device and tariff to suit you.

Mobile Broadband is similar yet very different to home broadband

Mobile broadband can be used on basically any device which is capable of connecting to a Wi-Fi network. You don’t need a SIM card slot in the device, so in that sense it’s very similar to home broadband, but it differs in two key ways.

For one thing it’s mobile, so rather than having a plugged-in router which only provides internet to your house or office, you can take a mobile broadband device with you and bring data to everything in the vicinity.

The other main difference is that it relies on 5G or 4G (and when 5G or 4G aren’t available 3G), so in that sense it’s more like the mobile data you get on your phone, except you can use it with other devices too and connect more than one device to it at once.

EE Mobile Broadband helps you play away

There are any number of situations where you might want to use mobile broadband. You can turn your car into a Wi-Fi hotspot for example and keep your kids entertained on long journeys, or bring internet to the train or any hotel which doesn’t offer affordable Wi-Fi, so you can work or stream videos away from home.

Basically, any time you or anyone you’re with might want to get online on something other than a phone when there’s no Wi-Fi available, mobile broadband could be the answer.

It can be less hassle than public Wi-Fi too, as you don’t need to find an open connection or fill out login pages. As it’s password protected it can also be a lot more secure and you won’t get stung with hefty data costs, as you can only use what you’ve paid for.

As it gives you the full power of the internet you can use it for any number of things. Streaming and downloading music and videos, engaging with social media, checking your email, working, communicating, downloading and using apps, even online gaming. It empowers you to do more in more places.

Super high speed 4G data on EE

Mobile broadband is as fast or slow as EE’s mobile data is in any given area, but as EE has the fastest and most widespread 4G network in the UK and a rapidly growing 5G network, it tends to be very speedy. In fact, speeds average around 150Mbps in areas with 5G.

Even where 5G isn’t available, you can still experience speeds of up to around 90Mbps on EE’s 4G network.

Like tethering, but better

Most phones and networks already allow you to share your smartphone’s data connection with other devices through what’s typically called tethering.

EE mobile broadband differs from this in that you’re not using your phone’s data allowance, which is handy if you have restrictive data limits. You’re also not draining your handset’s battery, which you could through tethering, so if you’re a fan of tethering you’re sure to be a fan of mobile Wi-Fi.

Biggest, fastest and most reliable mobile network

EE is a great choice for mobile Wi-Fi. For one thing it has wider spread 4G than any other UK network, so you’ll be able to take advantage of speedy data in more places.

There’s more than 99% UK population coverage for 4G so you really can use it almost everywhere.

EE was also the first UK network to launch 5G, so it has a head start there too.

A potential home broadband replacement

Depending on your circumstances, 5G or 4G broadband could even replace your home broadband. If you have a 5G or 4G signal on EE but can’t get very good broadband in your area as is the case in some rural locations for example, then it could be a great fit.

As noted above, EE even offers a 5GEE Home Router (and a 4GEE Home Router) specifically for this, which work much like mobile broadband and use EE’s network, but are designed for homes and aren’t battery-powered.

4G or 5G broadband could also save you money as it doesn’t require a landline, and even if you stick with your standard broadband, it could still be worth considering as a home broadband backup.

Unlike home broadband there’s no installation hassle either, as it’s straightforward and you can set it up yourself, usually in a matter of minutes.

Why choose EE mobile broadband?

The most important thing with mobile broadband is arguably coverage – after all, if you don’t have a signal then you can’t use your mobile broadband device to get other devices online, and on that front EE is a real winner, as it has over 99% UK population coverage and over 85% UK geographic coverage with 4G. It’s even rapidly rolling out 5G, for even faster speeds (with a compatible device).

With strong 3G coverage too plus lots of 4G spectrum, EE is set up to offer a speedy, reliable experience, wherever you are and however many devices you’re connecting your mobile broadband to.

There’s also a wide range of EE mobile broadband plans available, with a range of data limits and durations of 1 or 24 months, so there should be something suitable for you.

A choice of devices

Not only does EE offer a wide range of mobile broadband plans, it also has multiple different mobile broadband devices, coming in at different sizes, prices and with different specs, giving you plenty to choose from.

But you can’t really choose wrong, as they all support at least 4G speeds and can get lots of devices online at once – so all your gadgets (and those of your friends and family) can get an internet connection even when you’re miles from Wi-Fi.

How do I get set up?

That depends on the mobile broadband device you choose, but it’s typically little more than a case of activating the supplied SIM card, putting it in the broadband device and turning the power on. So it should only take a matter of minutes.
