Where have the 4GEE Routers gone?

I was just wondering whether it is still possible to get 4GEE routers? I still have some to connect, can i still connect them?

Doesn't help mid that Vodafone is now £30 unlimited i guess, even if it does have half the bandwidth?

Hi @Crunchieeagle

 

Did you find what you're looking for on the page that @Chris_B referred to?

Hi Yes, but they are out of stock and they are no longer available.

But can you still connect them if you have them?

Also when you mention 5G routers, in rural areas this isnt important for 2 to 3 years anyway as the 5GHz 700Mhz spectrum won't be out until then?

Id it is the NEC one that is fine but they do not have any SMA plaugs?

Are not doing a 5G antenna then , have EE dropped that project altogether?

Thanks

Yes, if you got one from us, you should still be able to connect it, @Crunchieeagle.

 

Do you have a SIM to register? Is it pay monthly or pay as you go?

 

You can find more information on 5GEE WiFi devices on our 5G hub.

Hi

Yes they are still on your system to buy.

I have about 10 of these to connect even though we don't use the EE Router we use Outdoor routers. (Cat 7 is perhaps the only good thing about) it as antennas with coaxial cable has a lot of restriction and lose the gain of the antenna too

We a 4G mobile broadband specialists in the SW England. So we just wanted to know if we could still connect larger data packages from EE

Up until now, we connect people on 4G on EE as it was band 3. EE is always the best on 4G always will be. It has the biggest bandwidth.

But since the expansion of Band 3 masts on Three "popping up" not everyone can get it through on Band 3 (but Bandwidth (15Mhz)) and with a company this week announcing  unlimited data (on Band 20) (10Mhz), the speeds will be slower by a 1/3 to a 1/2, but it is unlimited. 

Which is kind of an oxymoron? As the faster the speeds, (if you need it) the more data you will use, yet EE is the only one (apart from 02) which is hash anyway, so is Three most of the time unless as I say a Band 3 mast is present as Band 20 on EE and Three bandwidth only 5Mhz (VoLTE).

As a big EE fan, it is becoming harder to sell the "value" of EE network if it is double the price for capped data. This would be impossible to sell any capped data on 5G (700Mhz) in rural areas in the future if it is capped so I guess that is the reason why they are doing it, even if the marketing is not truthful (who is? even EE Homebroadband says it is Fibre on FTTC)
