EE’s Ultrafast 5G Mobile Network Goes Live in 6 New UK Cities

Wednesday, December 18th, 2019 (9:32 am) - Score 3,515

Mobile operator EE (BT) has today announced that their new 5G ultrafast mobile broadband network, which began its rollout across the United Kingdom in May 2019 (here), has today switched-on a further six cities including Hull, Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield and Sunderland.

As well as covering extra cities, the mobile giant has also extended 5G to more high footfall places, including London Euston Station, Cardiff Central station, Glasgow’s Bath Street and Belfast’s Kingspan Stadium. Overall today’s announcement means that EE’s 5G network is now live in 50 cities and towns, which surpasses their original ambition of reaching 16 UK cities in 2019.

Going forward the operator has said that their next aim is to have 5G live in more than 70 cities and large towns by March 2020.

Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer Division, said:

“We switched on the UK’s first 5G network in May, and this is another milestone towards keeping our customers connected 100% of the time. We’re leading the way in the UK, with 4G and 5G coverage in more places than any other operator. Adding 5G to more cities and towns – and expanding our 5G coverage in each place – is helping us to always deliver the best mobile experience to our customers.”

    East Anglia left in the dark ages as always.

    Reliable 4g would be nice first

      True. My commute, a train journey along a large stretch of Liverpool, is 20% no signal, 30% reliable 4G, 20% poor signal 4G, 30% 3G/other standards. That could be partially due to being on a train though.

      5G is going to be poorer at penetrating areas – and if there’s already a struggle to provide consistent 4G coverage then I don’t think that is going to bode well for getting 5G beyond initial pockets in major cities.

    I genuinely predicted what the comments would be before I even looked at them.
