Three 5G

Three launches 5G in Glasgow, Manchester and Reading

Three UK continues the rollout of its 5G network with the launch of its first Ericsson 5G sites which are now live for customers in Manchester, Glasgow and Reading.

Three 5G is now available to customers in 154 towns and cities being serviced by over 800 sites across the UK. The new sites mark the beginning of the next stage of Three’s 5G rollout which will see the connectivity extended to many more areas across the country.

Susan Buttsworth, Chief Operating Officer at Three UK said:

“We’re pleased to have our first Ericsson sites live on our network. Ericsson are a key partner in the transformation of our network. Our customers use 3.5 times more data than the industry average so the investments that we are making are vital to enhancing current performance of our 4G network, futureproofing it and delivering on our promise of providing better connectivity, every day for every customer.”

The partnership with Ericsson to rollout our 5G network is part of a £2billion investment into the transformation of Three UKs Network and IT infrastructure, and also includes huge improvements to our 4G network.

As part of this investment, Three have also launched 20 new data centres, made significant improvements to their fibre backhaul capabilities and completed the rollout of VoLTE across the entire 4G network.
