I use EE 4G for my internet connection as we don't get a lot of choice where I live.
Speed has always been eratic but it's been pretty awful lately e.g. 5mb or less, certainly not worth the > £100 per month I pay for the service.
I was going to chat with support but I notice that option is now gone.
So anyway I downloaded Oomi and ran a few checks, and it says that HTTP requests are being manipulated over the connection.
I don't get this with an O2 sim, or if I use by backup BT broadband.
Do EE install middleboxes? Could this be causing the speed problems?

You mean, switch it off and on again?
Yes, believe it or not, I thought of that.
How does this address the Middlebox issue I asked about?

Thanks for trying that, @dsadSa.
I'm not sure what Oomi is and why it's telling you that HTTP checks are being manipulated.
We'd always ask to restart a device with speed issues. A lot of the time, this refreshes the connection to the network.
It could simply be an issue with the network or equipment that is contributing to your problem.
Are there any maintenance works in your area? It could explain why your speeds have dropped.
