Mobile Choice Consumer Awards: EE wins Best Network

EE is the UK’s favourite mobile network, according to our readers who have voted in the annual Mobile Choice Consumer Awards.

The network took home the bacon for the second year running, having earned more votes than rivals Three, O2 and Vodafone.

4G is still EE’s greatest asset, and with 70% market penetration it is no surprise that it came out on top. A £275 million investment has further sealed its place as the market leader and a network which offers data packages loved by our readers.

The deal was sealed by consistently high praise from networking testing company Rootmetrics, and the recent announcement of delivering 400Mbps download speeds at Wembley Stadium shows it isn’t complacent, and has its eyes set firmly on the future.

Three gained a lot of love from customers this year by providing 4G at no extra cost, while the network now accounts for 45% of all mobile data usage in the UK.

O2 has spent the past year ‘being more dog’ and will continue to expand on its 2G, 3G and 4G services into the new year. By 2017, O2 will have invested £3 billion into upgrading its network to deliver indoor 4G coverage to 98% of the population.

Finally, Vodafone launched its 4G network in 2013 and has since gained 500,000 customers to the new, faster service in just six months.
