EE began its 5G journey earlier this year with customers getting access to these blisteringly fast speeds in May. At launch, there were just six cities where this signal was available but that number has been slowly growing over the past few months with more areas getting access to this new technology.
Now EE has announced its latest rollout with customers in another six places now able to download files at infinitely quicker speeds.
EE says it just has added 5G to Hull, Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield and Sunderland, surpassing its target of introducing 5G to 16 UK cities in 2019.
As well as switching on the first 5G sites in new cities and large towns, EE is boasting it has also brought 5G to more high footfall places, including London Euston Station, Cardiff Central station, Glasgow’s Bath Street and St Enoch Square, Belfast’s Kingspan Stadium, and Coventry’s Council House and Cathedral ruins.
Speaking about the update 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 percent 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.”
