EE has been named the RootScore Award Winner in Belfast by RootMetrics

EE has been named the RootScore Award Winner in Belfast by RootMetrics, an independent consumer advocate.

More than 26,000 mobile performance tests were completed, comparing the performance of EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three. EE had the strongest overall performance for Belfast and came top for Mobile Internet Performance and joint-first for Call Performance and Text Performance.  

The report findings showed average download speeds of 25Mbps and average upload speeds of 13.6Mbps for EE customers in the Belfast region. EE’s average download speed was three times faster for downloads than any other mobile operator and is the fastest RootMetrics has recorded by any operator in the UK to date.

EE first rolled out 4G services in Belfast in December 2012 and launched double-speed 4G services in July 2013.

Recent research[1] showed that 4G is changing the way customers use their mobiles, with streaming and sharing more important than ever. One in four ultra-social Britons check social apps more than ten times a day on their 4G smartphone or tablet, with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram the favourite social media apps over 4G.

EE's 4G services enable local residents and businesses to access the web on the go in an instant; download large email attachments quicker than ever; hold video calls; watch live TV on the move without buffering; and play live multiplayer games on the go.
