60% of London now has 5G coverage too
Whilst still a relatively new technology in the UK, EE is continuing its rollout of 5G across the country with 14 new towns and cities being switched on today.
EE launched with 5G coverage in London, Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester, and has expanded 5G on a daily basis.
Today, EE has added 5G to Castlereagh, Guildford, Hamilton, Harlow, Hoddesdon, Kimberley, Lisburn, Maidstone, Sydenham, Watford and Wolverhampton, and has switched on its first 5G sites in Liverpool, Glasgow and Huddersfield.
As well as covering new cities and large towns, EE has also brought 5G to more high footfall places, including Bristol Parkway, Cardiff Castle, and London’s Carnaby Street and Camden Market.
Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer division which owns EE, said: “Switching on 5G in more places is helping us deliver the best mobile experience to our customers, keeping them connected to the things that matter most. RootMetrics’ early 5G testing shows that we are a long way ahead in terms of 5G performance, and our engineers are continuing to build new sites every day, on our journey to keeping our customers connected 100% of the time.”
The full list of towns and cities where 5G is available now is as follows:
- Potters Bar
- Sutton Coldfield
- West Bromwich
