EE and BT made a big announcement this morning, with a new 'hybrid' router than links up regular fibre-topic broadband with EE's 4G network.
What that means is that this router can use both regular and mobile broadband options, to ensure that you're always getting the best and most stable connection.
The point is to ensure a reliable connection and the fastest possible speeds, so if you have any issues with the broadband side of things you're able to automatically fall back on the 4G connection to minimise your browsing woes.
While it's easy to sound sceptical of this given EE's fondness for strict data limits, it's been confirmed that the mobile connection is unlimited, so you shouldn't find yourself with a ridiculous bill at the end of the month if your broadband dies suddenly and you end up binge-watching the latest 4K Netflix series on a mobile connection.
“The UK’s first truly hybrid home broadband combines BT’s superfast broadband network with EE’s 4G network to give customers consistent and reliably fast broadband speeds, even in areas with traditionally slow broadband speeds or at peak times.
The hybrid technology ensures customers are always connected, as one technology will take over the other in the unlikely event of a fault.”
