Does EE provide any frequency based coverage maps?

Does anyone know anywhere that I can find a breakdown of UK data coverage by frequency/band? Taking 4g as an example, I know that 800MHz/band 20 is widely used in rural areas as it carries better over distance. I know that 2600MHz/band 7 is widely used in urban areas and penetrates buildings better than band 20. I'd like to be able to see the scope of UK coverage in the various frequency bands. I think the coverage maps on the provider's websites are the aggregate coverage of all bands. In a nutshell:

- what's the UK 4G coverage as a map by EE at 800MHz/band 20?

what's the UK 4G coverage as a map by EE at 1800MHz/band 3?

what's the UK 4G coverage as a map by EE at 2600MHz/band 7?

 

I'd also like to see similar maps for the 2G/3G bands if possible. Guess this might be business confidential information though.

 

Why? 1) I'm curious. 2) I have a phone that doesn't support band 20 and wonder how extensive the rural coverage will be when I go camping.

 

(Why have I got a phone that doesn't support band 20 - that's another question Smiley Wink)

 

Thanks in advance

Hello @KeepTriin no they do not but if you enter a compatible devices details in the Coverage Checker it will include EE 800mhz 4G coverage:

@tm90 I've never got the map to show 800 coverage. It currently incorrectly puts the 800 'score' in though even if you haven't selected a 4G Calling device.

Is it not properly working now? Hardly surprising with EE. Smiley LOL
