5G Coming to 16 UK Cities

EE to roll out 5G in 16 cities next year in 'demand-led' strategy EE Name First 16 UK Cities for its 2019 Commercial 5G Mobile Rollout

EE, the largest mobile carrier in the United Kingdom, is planning to launch its 5G network in 16 cities across the country in 2019.

The network would first be rolled out in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester and later in ten more cities, upgrading some 1,500 sites to 5G to start with, EE said. It will then be rolled out to Bristol, Coventry, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield.

The first 1,500 sites that EE is upgrading to 5G amount to around seven percent of its total sites, and cover 15 percent of the United Kingdom population.

The 5G rollout strategy is determined by the number of business and consumer customers the EE network connects in busy places, and the amount of data those customers use.

All That Social Media May Boost Loneliness
Participants were required to submit screenshots of their iPhone battery usage at specified increments to verify usage. This is said to be the first study that has found a casual link between social media use and depression/loneliness.

The firm will then introduce its 5G network - which is now being tested in two live trials in Canary Wharf and East London's tech hub - to a further 10 cities throughout 2019; Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol, reaching a total of 1,500 sites during the year. 4G downloads can reach 50 megabits per second while 5G is able to operate at speeds than are 100 times faster, which means it could be used to meet rising demand for mobile video. "5G is an additional layer on top of a very strong 4G foundation", Mr Allera said. The carrier is now testing 5G in Canary Wharf and other parts of east London.

EE is also upgrading its 4G service by converting 3G signal into 4G and is expanding 4G coverage into rural parts of the UK.

As well as increasing capacity, EE is expanding 4G coverage into rural parts of the United Kingdom to give rural communities the coverage and capacity that they need.

Of course, none of that will matter if your phone doesn't support the newer 5G standards, so EE is partnering with multiple (currently unspecified) smartphone manufacturers for the initial rollout. The carrier will also be working with introducing a 5G home router that will show off the wireless network as an alternative to wired broadband internet services. The company has been testing all United Kingdom mobile operators every six months since 2012.
