EE plans to launch Full Fibre 1.6Gbps broadband service soon accompanied by upgraded hubs and routers.

The super-fast service has been developed at BT’s research centre at Adastral Park and is built on a gigabit+ capable full fibre network which will be be EE’s fastest service available supporting multiple online devices with average speeds up to 44 times faster than Superfast Fibre.

An advanced router called Smart Hub Plus pairs with Smart Wi-Fi Plus. EE will also roll out Smart Hybrid Connect to automatically connect to EE’s mobile network for back up if required.

Other new features include Wi-Fi controls to prioritise their bandwidth when working from home or gaming or set new advanced parental controls. The Smart Hub Plus, Smart Wi-Fi Plus and Hybrid Connect will be joined by the Smart Hub and Smart Wi-Fi will replace EE’s existing line-up in the coming months.

Product outer casings will also be made from up to 95 per cent recycled plastic, with box packaging being both recycled and recyclable. Marc Allera, CEO at EE said: “We continually look to bring innovative products and services to market. EE home broadband backed-up by EE’s mobile network will set the standard for broadband for years to come.”
