What speed will the mobile wifi box let me get? Does it depend on the postcode as well? Because my area gets up to 11mbps. Will I be able to get higher than that? And if so, how much higher?

Welcome to the community.
The coverage checker will let you know if you're within a 4G area. Speeds can vary though depending on numerous factors.
If you have an EE phone, or know someone who has, check the mobile internet speed through a speed checker site/app.

Are you asking whether a mobile signal in your area will be any faster then the 11 Meg standard fixed BB that you are getting currently? It'll certainly be more variable.
Be aware that there could be issues using game consoles over the mobile network, particularly if you are hosting games for outsiders to join. It's questionable whether you can get the right "NAT Type" that these game consoles demand.

No, I mean that whatever the speed it could change significantly from 1 time to another. Whereas with fixed BB it will stay at the same speed for days, weeks & even months at a time and even when it re-syncs it will be at much the same speed as before.
I've no idea where you are & the building you're in. So I can't say what you'll get there. The only way for you to find out is to do a few speedtests on the mobile network. Get yourself a PAYG SIM & test it.
These other peeps who play PS4 online, were they on EE? I was only talking about the EE network specifically.
You don't need to commit to a 2 or even 1 (as they come) year contract. You could have a rolling 30-day contract by paying £100 for the MBB router up front.
