EE has rolled 5G out to 21 new towns and cities across the UK, taking the total number up to 71.

After initially launching 5G coverage in London, Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester, the operator has branched out even further.

Bath, Birkenhead, Clydebank, Motherwell and Rotherham have become some of the more recent locations added by EE, who was the first UK operator to launch 5G in May last year.

The operator has also brought 5G to more high footfall locations in recent times including Bath’s Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge plus London Bridge and London’s Thornton Heath railway station.

BT consumer division CEO Marc Allera said: “We have 5G coverage in more places than any other operator, and remain focused on connecting even more towns and cities in 2020 and beyond to keep our customers in the busiest places.”

EE has also switched on its first 5G sites in a number of locations including; Bransholme, Bury, Chelmsford, Cheshunt, Clevedon, Dartford, Dinnington, Loughborough, Loughton, North Shields, Rochester, Rugeley, Swadlincote, South Shields, Staines and Waltham Cross.
