Is EE a good mobile network?
EE is the most used network in the UK and took home the Best Consumer Network prize at the 2018 Mobile Industry Awards and continued to win awards in 2019 – so pretty good pedigree, we’d say!
The reason EE stands out most however, is its 4G speeds. It’s the fastest network by some distance, and around 50% faster than any of the other three major networks (Vodafone, O2 and Three).
What SIM card size do I need?
There are three sizes of SIM card that you can get for your phone, and different phones use different sizes. No modern smartphones take the classic standard SIM (15x25mm) anymore. Your phone will almost definitely take either a micro (12x15mm) or nano (8.8×12.3mm) SIM, the latter of which has been used by Apple since the iPhone 5 and Samsung since the Galaxy S6.
But there’s no need to get your knickers in a twist about this one. The networks and third party sellers will let you choose which SIM you need or will simply send out a triple SIM, so you’ll get one of each size. Alternatively, they’ll send you an adapter so you can use the incorrect SIM size in your phone.
