One of the largest mobile operator EE revealed today that it will now launch the Britain first 5G service in the six major cities by the end of 30 May.
EE will also switch on its 5G services in the Belfast, Manchester, Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, later this month, according to the report which has been revealed.
The company also revealed that it will also roll out the 5G rapidly from the today itself with more than 1000 new 5G sites per month being added on a daily basis, which even provides 5G in more cities: Glasgow, Leeds, Hull, Liverpool, Nottingham, Leicester, Bristol, Sheffield, and Newcastle.
Some media also reports claimed that EE will also launch a 5G network “without the Huawei technology as originally planned”.
But a spokesperson from BT, the parent group of EE, said: “As we have previously stated, Huawei will continue to supply our 5G radio network infrastructure — they remain a valued and innovative supplier.”
Under this new 5G network, EE also revealed that some customers will also break the one gigabit per second milestone on their 5G smartphone. The fastest speed possible when EE launched 4G in the year 20012 was just 50 megabits per second.
“This is the start of the UK’s 5G journey and great news for our customers that want and need the best connections,” said Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer division.
