At an event in London on Wednesday attended by INQ, Marc Allera, CEO of BT's consumer brands, announced that EE's super-fast network will launch next week in six of the UK's busiest cities: London, Cardiff, Belfast, Edinburgh, Birmingham Manchester.
A second stage rollout will see Aberdeen, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cambridge, Dundee, Exeter, Ipswich, Norwich, Plymouth and York get 5G in 2020 on EE.
"We're adding 5G to the UK's number one 4G network to increase reliability, increase speeds, and keep our customers connected where they need it most", Allera said. EE claims its working on adding 100 new 5G sites per month with plans to cover all major United Kingdom cities by 2020.
EE's 5G network will go live on the 30th of May, while Vodafone will begin offering its own 5G service from the 3rd of July.
The BT-owned telecoms giant said it will be the first operator in the United Kingdom to launch the new, high-speed mobile network.Читайте также: Emilia Clarke bids emotional farewell to Game Of Thrones on Instagram
Even though the 5G service is now being built on top of the existing 4G network, BT ensures it is secure and all Huawei technology will be removed from core systems by 2022. Meanwhile SIM-Only plans start from 20GB per month (£32 per month) and rise to 100GB (£52 per month).
5G will open up a whole new world of tech-powered experiences, including autonomous vehicles, smart cities and VR. In 2012, it become only the 53rd nation to launch 4G.
The current 5G launch is part of the carriers phase 1 plan which will rely on combining the new generation network with pre-existing 4G coverage for optimal broadband usage.
Phase 2, from 2022, will introduce the full next generation 5G core network, enhanced device chipset capabilities, and increased availability of 5G-ready spectrum.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
