Three Mobile is no stranger to 5G. The carrier started to support the superfast mobile network technology last year but, at launch, it was only available to Three broadband customers in London.
But that’s all about to change with the UK mobile provider set to finally rival the likes of EE, Vodafone, O2, BT and Sky with the launch of 5G for your mobile phone. That means if you use Three Mobile and have a 5G-ready device, you’ll soon be able to download files, binge on Netflix, and watch 4K films with less buffering.
5G isn’t just about faster speeds. You’ll also be able to continue to browse in packed areas, like concert arenas and live sport matches, without seeing a drop in your speeds.
Three says the rollout begins today in areas including London, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Coventry and Nottingham all getting access to the upgrade.
Although there’s no confirmation of how fast Three’s 5G network will be, a recent test by Express.co.uk using the EE network revealed downloads of over 300Mbps are possible.
Speaking about the announcement, Three CEO Dave Dyson said: “Today we are celebrating what is possible through 5G with a showcase of our ultra-fast 5G capabilities marking the next step in our 5G journey.
