Hi there everyone,
In a few months i am off to Australia, followed by the USA for a working holiday. I'm in the process of upgrading my phone and the contract has the free roaming in Aus and the USA, but i cant for the life of me find anything that will give me an idea on the coverage in those countries or the roaming partners.
Can anyone put my mind at ease? and tell me the coverage is fine and not to panic haha
Thanks in advance

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community today.
In regards to roaming in the U.S., EE's roaming partner is T-Mobile and you can use 2G, 3G and 4G while connected to T-Mobile, you can also roam onto AT&T and use 3G and 4G (there will be no 2G coverage on AT&T because AT&T have decommissioned their 2G network).
Unfortunately, I haven't been to Australia (I have the U.S.), but I believe EE's roaming partner is Telstra (from memory) and you should be able to use 2G, 3G and 4G; you should also be able to roam onto Vodafone AU and Optus and use 2G and 3G, but I am unsure on 4G as I can no longer find EE's 4G partner list.

Hi and welcome to the community @farmerboy3
You will have connectivity to Optus or Telstra whilst roaming in Australia depending on local coverage.
You will be able to receive 4G on both networks (local infrastructure dependant)
