The EE 4GEE Action Cam is the first 4G connected sports camera capable of live streaming video footage in the UK over the EE mobile broadband network (mbb). With EE continuing to expand it’s range of mbb connected devices, others include the EE Buzzard, an in-car 4G WiFi device, it would seem there is more to a mobile network than just smartphone contracts.

EE 4GEE Action Cam – design / build quality
The EE action cam is built solid and definitely sturdy enough to take some knocks, as you would expect from a sports camera. Measuring 59mm x 43mm x 51mm and weighing just 120 grams it’s impressively compact considering it has the added feature of live streaming via the 4G network.
The EE 4GEE camera has a matt black plastic housing with yellow and turquoise coloured buttons to compliment EE’s branding
The actual design of the product is nothing new, those who are familiar with the Hewlett Packard HP AC-300W will instantly notice the resemblance. As is often the case with products of this type, big brands will use the same manufacturer and make subtle tweaks in the design to suit their particular requirements.
I happen to know the manufacture of this particular OEM model of action cam, it’s a company called Dome who specialise in making a large range of action cameras, rear-view and dash cams. As innovators in the field, I have no doubts about the quality of their products. The DV500 which is the model the EE 4GEE Action cam and the HP AC-300W have been developed from is a solid product, hence the reason why two UK brands are using it.
EE 4GEE Action Cam – features / performance
EE have said that a full hour of Full HD streamed video from the action cam will consume roughly 1GB of your data allowance, this seems pretty impressive considering the quality of the footage.
If you are top of a mountain or at the bottom of an ocean and don’t have any MBB connection, the EE 4GEE action cam will happily record directly on to an SD card. You can then transfer the footage to your PC or Laptop or simply upload it directly from the device to any social network site.

EE 4GEE Action Cam – Verdict
The EE Action Cam would be ideal live 4G streaming in urban locations but maybe not so useful if you are miles away from the nearest network tower.
