10 miles outside of Cardiff, going to do a full test tomorrow in the centre. But pretty awesome so far!

I've done a few IPv6 tests as well for TBB if you want to view it - over 450mbps in Cardiff Yesterday.

This is part of the rollout of the new Gigabit base stations that started in Cardiff in April, there are also some in London, but Cardiff centre being fairly small (in comparison) make them easier to use. They only claim up to 360Mbps but can obviously get quite a lot faster.

Your download speed was impressive , apart from speed tests, what do you use it for?

I stream when I can, I also use it to get stuff I need for work on the move - although the tethering is slower than that test.

Although with 25GB it does not last long frown

I'm in Cardiff, I will do another speed test when I can and post the results.

For reference it will be on Queen Street

Was totally rubbish, I didn't get over 40mbps even stood outside the EE store

The area must be having problems, or is swamped!

My EE data gets used when I am not home, generally in waiting rooms etc. at hoospitals and the like, if I am out visiting family/friends, sometimes at home if DSL is down or in my new tasker config where I have the phone switch to mobile data with screen off (even when at home).

For me I feel 95% of the year or perhaps even 99% of the year, I dont need more than 1-2 gig of data per month, which means EE is fine for my usage, I consider it important that when I do need it, it performs snappy, which EE does, and the option for the 1-5% of the year to use more data is easy I just order extra data for that month.

No longer showing 4G+ just outside of Newport, but still getting 200mbps+ so I guess they have re jigged it.

I travel the country and I get it in other places.
