Re: EE false advertising

Because they know they can get away with it.
The worst that will happen is they'll get told they can't use, or have to amend it by the ASA, usually months after its stopped airing.

Re: EE false advertising

You presumably have the statistics to support your potentially libelous comment?
EE obviously feel that this independent report means it's OK to make such claims.  I'm sure that the ASA will be interested in any large scale research you've undertaken to counter their claim.

Re: EE false advertising

Look at what plusnet claim in their ad's.
I would say they're all at it because the ASA is a bit on the toothless side.

I'm not with EE but the survey seems to back up their claim.

Re: EE false advertising

4G is far from country wide. So is it a case people signing up before checking coverage?

Re: EE false advertising

As mentioned in another thread.....  Missus shows EE on her phone ( was T-mobile when bought at the same time as mine from Tesco ).. and my phone is showing T-mobile... we have had no problems with the connection quality or time outs... except in some very rural areas of Wales.... when it meant driving up a mountain to get a signal !  (well not quite "up" a "mountain"  ... but at worst just get out of a deep valley ! )...

This:
http://s16.postimg.org/9of2h1sqd/screenshot_232.png
is simply a generic map showing in which country of the UK (&NI) which provider "won" in various categories.
It is not showing 4G coverage nor is it even claiming to!

Not according to the map below from their site

I have a 4G contract with EE with no 4G coverage in my area. They offered me a very good deal to stay with them but when I asked about the same phone also with unlimited texts and calls and same data allowance but on a 3G contract it was £2 per month more Roll eyes
