Sony Xperia Z3. Hazel Grove. Using my postcode I get:-Which is a bit irrelevant of course given my FTTC.
The Z3 is an LTE Category 4 device, max theoretical speed of 150megabit, which is the same as the iPhone 6 / 6+.
I've read elsewhere that DoubleSpeed is two things, on the network coverage maps (in yellow) it means you are in an area where 2x20mhz (ie 20mz downlink, 20mhz uplink) is provisioned for LTE services, whereas in the green areas its 2x10mhz. This means more capacity for more simultaneous higher speed users and in lightly loaded times for higher speeds. Some have seen over 100mbps on Cat 4 devices on 2x20 areas but where there are very few users. On the price plan "double speed" means no speed cap at 30mbps.
The "EE Extra" price plan when you buy a phone means you get double speed, and you get access to the new LTE-Advanced network which EE call "4G+" and is only currently in central London. This needs a device with a Cat 6 chip, and that is really the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, or the Samsung Galaxy S6 due for release in April - or one LG model.
On the EE coverage checker once you've entered a town or postcode, you can click on each section on the left side, 2G, 3G, 4G and the map colours change. Once you click on 4G you will see the two colours green and yellow.
