British mobile operator turned internet provider EE has announced the expansion of its fixed broadband range with the introduction of two new plans based on G.fast technology. The operator’s ‘Fibre Max 1’ and ‘Fibre Max 2’ tariffs offer average downlink speeds of 145Mbps and 300Mbps, with the former costing GBP42 (USD56) per month and the latter GBP47; both plans offer unlimited usage allowances. In addition, the operator has revealed a further bonus for its mobile subscribers; those of its post-paid customers that sign up to one of its new G.fast-based services will have their monthly mobile data usage allowance boosted by 20GB. EE says the new broadband plans are ‘built to support the demands of customers with increasingly connected homes and families’, and ‘form part of [its] strategy to provide customers across the UK with the best mobile and broadband converged offers and services’.
Notably the launch of the new tariffs comes hot on the heels of Openreach – the network unit of EE’s parent company BT – naming 59 new locations where G.fast technology is to be rolled out.
