British mobile network operator (MNO) has announced that it plans to switch on its 5G network in October this year. In a press release outlining its plans, it aims to have extended coverage to a total of 20 towns and cities by the end of 2019, with that figure rising to 50 by summer 2020.
Its intelligence-led rollout strategy has been driven by data and insight that identifies where customers will benefit from 5G the most, while suggesting its next-generation network will ‘radically improve capacity and reliability in key locations, allowing customers to access super-fast speeds even during peak periods’.
A technology specialist in the UK said: ‘As we switch on our network across the country, our intelligence-led roll-out prioritises the key areas in towns and cities first – the places where our customers need, and will use, 5G the most. We’re also giving our customers maximum flexibility with our industry-leading custom plans, letting people adopt 5G at a time that’s right for them.’
