Of course, to use 5G you’ll need a compatible device and EE currently has a number options available including phones from Samsung, OnePlus, LG, and Oppo available from around £50 per month.
It’s currently hard to say just how good EE’s 5G is but Express.co.uk has had the chance to test this network in London with us recording speeds of over 300Mbps which is around 10 times faster than the average fixed-line broadband.
Along with that mobile signal, EE has also just launched its 5GEE WiFi service.
EE says it will offer the service with the HTC 5G Hub – the very first 5G mobile broadband device available in the UK. The HTC 5G Mobile Smart Hub will allow customers to benefit from smooth 4K video streaming, low-latency gaming, and 5G mobile hotspot connections for up to 20 users.
This means if you live in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester you should be able to find much faster speeds being beamed to your phone.
EE says it will then roll out 5G rapidly from with more than 100 new 5G sites per month being added, providing 5G in: Bristol, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Hull, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow
Ten more towns and cities announced as initial 5G locations for 2020 with more to follow: Aberdeen, Cambridge, Derby, Gloucester, Peterborough, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Southampton, Worcester and Wolverhampton
The race is truly on to make your smartphone faster with a number of the UK’s biggest networks making the switch to 5G.
EE launched is new signal in May and Vodafone called on the Lewis Hamilton to hit the button on 5G last week.
Three has also revealed its plans to bring customers much better speeds from August and O2 is expected to announce more details about 5G at the end of this month.
