EE: Loose connections.

by Syd Briscoe


EE: “The Engineers” - 40s

Forget 2G, 3G, and even Honey G: 4G is where it's at. Or so Kevin Bacon informs us in another instalment of his oddly tolerable shtick for EE. The network are providing coverage in ever-more remote places, illustrated by Kevin and a cheery engineer going on a quest to the furthest reaches of the UK.

There's an interesting element of collaboration here, as the brand manage to pack a lot of extras into the 40" running time. They include a cameo from Just Eat, a reference to Facebook Live, and an appearance from I'm A Celebrity-winning Goggleboxer Scarlett Moffatt re-enacting the more unpleasant parts of her time in the jungle.

Caravan holiday, far-flung festival, or tucker trial - EE aim to provide enough 4G to keep even the most bored traveller satisfied. They even have drones these days, just in case you're up a mountain when your cat videos fail.
