Have you ever tried unplugging your Home Broadband router for an hour? Give it a try sometime – and see how often you go to do something, play something, watch something or post something only to find you can’t without that trusty little box plugged in.
It’s pretty staggering, really! Without broadband powering our home lives, some of our most basic tasks are impossible. Yet it’s all too easy to forget just how essential that high-speed connection can be. Unless, that is, you’ve ever come up against a data cap or download limit. If this is the case, you know exactly how vital it is. One minute you’re watching Netflix while searching for that last-minute gift; the next, you’re back to the Stone Age.
Luckily, with EE Home Broadband you get totally unlimited data usage! That’s right, no data caps, no download limits and, unlike other providers, we’ll NEVER reduce your WiFi speed – so you’re always covered, no matter how many hours you spend binge-watching your favourite series. And with our Fibre Plus, you’ll get average speeds of 67Mb/s. That’s seven times faster than standard broadband!
And all this got us thinking: what if we didn’t have high speed internet and unlimited data in our homes? What would life be like if our beloved Home Broadband suddenly disappeared overnight? Well, we imagined the unthinkable so you don’t have to. Here are the things we’d hugely struggle to cope with if Home Broadband suddenly didn’t exist…
Life without… on-demand TV and films
Whether it’s Netflix, Amazon Prime, EE TV or another service you rely on for those box-set binges – having a fast, reliable WiFi connection is handy for streaming. Without Home Broadband, we’d have to go back to renting physical copies of our favourite shows and movies. So if your friend texts you about a new series they’re “insanely obsessed with!”, you’d actually have to leave your house to find it! Not ideal when you’re already full of Chinese takeaway and in full-on daytime-pyjama-mode!
