Birmingham on the list for EE’s 5G roll-out

EE has announced that it is switching on 5G sites in 16 UK cities in 2019, including Birmingham.

EE is building 5G in the busiest parts of the six launch cites – including Birmingham’s Bullring, Hyde Park in London, Manchester Arena, Belfast City Airport, the Welsh Assembly, and Edinburgh Waverly train station.

As well as the six launch cities, through 2019 EE will also be introducing 5G across the busiest parts of ten more UK cities – Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol.

Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division, said: “Adding 5G to the UK’s number one 4G network will increase reliability, increase speeds, and keep our customers connected where they need it most. This is another milestone for the UK and for our network journey – we’ll keep evolving as we move to one, smart network for our customers. We have an ambition to connect our customers to 4G, 5G or WiFi 100% of the time.”
