EE introduces 4GEE WiFi and 4GEE WiFi Mini mobile broadband devices

EE has announced its new 4GEE WiFi and 4GEE WiFi Mini mobile broadband devices, just a day after BT introduced three new pay monthly plans with attractive discounts.

The larger 4GEE WiFi device comes with a battery pack and can serve as a hotspot for up to ten devices while the smaller one is more suitable for outdoor usage.

Thee two new portable Wi-Fi devices running EE's 4G+ data speeds will give you a great new low cost option to access high-speed internet on all of your devices. They will at the same time let you use hotspot through different devices rather than draining your smartphone's battery.

“As leaders in the UK 4G WiFi market, we’re continually looking to launch the latest mobile broadband devices. Our new 4GEE WiFi hotspots are designed for those who want a compact device that makes the very most from our award winning network when on the move,” said Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices at EE.

The larger 4GEE WiFi device is not only CAT 6 LTE enabled, but can provide higher capacity connections to up to ten devices at the same time. The device can also double up as a power bank and thanks to its 5,000 mAh battery, can charge devices while beaming out Wi-Fi at the same time. Thanks to Qualcomm Fast Charge 2.0 technology, it can charge devices quicker than other power banks in the market.

You can buy the 4GEE WiFi device by paying either £79.99 upfront or by entering into a pay monthly plan with EE which requires an upfront payment of £49.99 and monthly payments starting from £11.

You can also go for a smaller 4GEE WiFi Mini which is highly portable and can be easily carried when you are travelling. However, it doesn't work as a power bank but supports WIFI 802.11b/g/n and will let you access the internet easily while you're out and about. 4GEE WiFi Mini costs £39.99 on Pay As You Go and is also available through pay monthly plans starting from £11 per month. You can order either of these devices from EE stores, EE telesales and the EE online shop now.

The fact that EE has decided to make its 4GEE WiFi device a power bank as well might have resulted from the fact that its infamous Power Bars are now history. Last month, EE confirmed that it will not bring back EE Power Bars after a it came to light that the bars posed fire safety risks due to overheating.

“Our EE Power Bar promotion had a hugely positive response from our customers, however after careful consideration we've decided not to bring it back," said an EE spokesperson to Mobile Today. "We still sell a wide range of chargers and power packs to keep our customer connected. We’ll share news shortly about ways to stay connected at Glastonbury and the summer festival season, as well as some exciting new loyalty offers throughout the summer,” the spokesperson added," he added.
