To use EE's 800mhz you have to be using VoLTE, and currently only EE contract accounts (including SIM only contracts) can use VoLTE.

BT mobile and Plusnet mobile whom are both virtual networks (MVNO) on EE are both NOT supplying VoLTE services.

(Not many phones support VoLTE, iPhones from 6, and SOME androids with EE's firmware).

Only started deploying late 2016, and not much visible unless you are VERY rural.

If you have an Android phone using the app cellmapper - and website (www.cellmapper.net) may show what is in your area. In my town there is one mast with 800mhz (LTE Band 20) and its on low power.

then grab an android phone, install the cellmapper app and a PAYG EE SIM and drive past. Get home, connect to WiFi and upload the data - and the map updates. Its crowd sourced.
