OK, so what is the difference between "Up to 60 mpbs" and "Fastest 4G"?

OK, so what is the difference between "Up to 60 mpbs UK data speeds" and "Fastest 4G"?  Because after gathering info from many sites, the top speed for EE is 60 mpbs.  Does the "Fastest 4G" mean a garantee speed of 60 mpbs or not?  I'm just wondering, because is it worth the extra money?

There are never any guarantees when it comes to 4G data speeds as it depends on the tech used and loads on each mast.

 

Plans that offer 'fastest' 4G don't come with a 4G speed cap and so will work at the fastest available speed based on network conditions.  The upto 60mpbs plans are capped at 60mbps max regardless of location.

 

I can get almost 100mbps here from an EE double speed mast in the middle of night, during the day, it's nearer 40mpbs from the same mast.

Hi @Justiain and welcome to the community.

 

Please pop over to our guide on what is 4G, in regards to your speed question there isn't a simple answer, unfortunately, as 4G performance depends on things like...

  • What device you're using
  • How near you are to a 4G mast
  • The number of people on the network

Hope this helps,
