Kidsgrove is in EE's Network Area.

What are you router stats?

Run the iPlayer Speed Test at various times of the day.

I agree with that Andrew, but it does mean the standard Market based pricing does not apply.

XRaySpeX did a lot of research on this when it happened. On EE it appears to be exchanges that were Orange LLU that are well treated, and non-LLU badly.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 55.8/14.5Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Thanks all,

So would that mean that where I am with my exchange that I "should" get a good service with EE/Orange? Is my exchange an old Orange LLU one?

Is going from Sky Unlimited with a 19Mbps connection to EE worth it?
Saving £10/month but not if it's going to cause a real hassle.

No 100% answer, but the market 3 pricing reduction applies no matter which provider...on top of this is the option for negotiated discounts

FYI: EE's Service Availability Area (BB Network Area) = all exchanges where Orange had LLU (1867) + those Market 2 exchanges where Orange didn't have LLU (326).

Market 3 price reduction is NOT applied by EE in all their 12 Market 3 Non-LLU Exchanges incl. EMTOWCE, THLG.

Surprising! Are you on fibre? Didn't think you were.

Have a look at: Getting Line Stats from your Modem/Router

Just because its not applied to the retail customer does not mean that EE do not get the discount

Never claimed it was! We were discussing EE's network area and as customers / potential customers we are only interested in the price to us.
