The UK mobile network, which is part of BT, is set to go live with the megafast broadband offering this summer which blows away the competition. That's if you can afford it—no word yet on the cost but experts believe it's unlikely to be cheap.

To put it in perspective, a full HD film on the current average broadband speed takes over 10 minutes to download, whereas you could download the same film in under 20 seconds on this package.

It's unclear exactly how much the package will cost each month but given that other top broadband subscriptions cost over £50 per month, you can reasonably expect to cost upwards of at least £60.

Further details on the new broadband package still haven't been outlined, but EE has confirmed that customers will get a free upgrade to their WiFi router too.
