EE extends 4G roaming to 14 new countries


EE has announced that it will be extending 4G roaming connectivity to 14 additional countries, following the rollout of the service to cover Spain and France earlier this year.

The UK carrier's roaming agreement will allow EE customers to enjoy 4G connectivity while travelling to Canada, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, UAE, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Switzerland. Customers visiting South Korea will also be able to enjoy 4G roaming thanks to a new deal that is set to go into effect tomorrow.

Customers wanting to avail 4G roaming have to buy a data roaming bundle, and while the 1 GB bundle is no longer available, EE is offering 500 MB data for £25 to users roaming within the EU.

EE has stated that all consumer and small business cutovers will be eligible to enjoy 4G roaming in these territories starting today, and has mentioned that corporate customers will be able to follow suit soon.

EE users, are you excited about the carrier's move to bringing 4G roaming to additional territories? Which country do you want to see covered by the carrier?

EE extends 4G roaming to 14 new countries


The thing with EE (in my experience & others I know) is that it's a really poor network with rubbish customer service. 3 Network on the other hand, I can't fault them.

I am utterly the other way. I have one phone on Three (work) and one on EE ([personal) and Three is just abysmal. Zero coverage where I work. I am expected to get 4G inside, I can barely get 3G (one bar) where I live and text messages take upwards of four hours to arrive from others.

I am moving away from Three as soon as I am able. They have awful customer service too; they just don't seem to care.

I guess the moral of the story is there's no perfect network that's suits everyone.

Ps I accidently reported your comment & can't unreport it haha.

It's OK, the mods will no doubt look at the report and dismiss it if they consider my post doesn't violate any of the site rules (which I don't think it does.) :)

You're right though, there's no 'one network to rule them all' and I honestly hope there never will be as competition helps keep costs down and quality up.

The difference in price and value between Three and every other UK provider is comical at this point. Three have free unlimited data roaming in a big pile of countries now, and much more useful ones (with some obvious exceptions) in general. I pay £12 a month on Three for unlimited 4G data. No other provider comes close to that.

That said, Three's network coverage is pretty hopeless outside of cities, and even in large towns I often have zero signal on Three. In the countryside, there's no chance of a signal.

From my experience O2 have the best network in terms of reach, but their 4G stuff barely exists at present, and their pricing and data caps are a joke.

Yes I have to agree with you on this. Vodafone came bottom of the pile and 02 just got pipped to the post by EE on call quality and coverage, apparently. Three's coverage outside of cities (and even then) is just a joke, from my experience.

I pay £12 for unlimited data too but to be honest, if I can't connect 50% of the time due to there being zero coverage then unlimited data is largely irrelevant. I would prefer to pay more for guaranteed coverage in the areas I need it and EE provide that at just over double the cost (£26) for 4gig of 4G.

It's not ideal but reliability and ease of contacting me are far more important than unlimited data.

Of course, this is purely my opinion and as we are all different, with different phones and living and working in different parts of the UK, we will all have different experiences.
