Three UK

Three to roll out 5G Mobile services by end of February

Three UK is finally launching their 5G mobile network  by the end of the month, the company announced today.

The company is the last of the major four UK networks to introduce the next-generation wireless standard to smartphones, which was due to arrive by the end of 2019. 

Three’s 5G network will be available on mobiles in 65 locations by the end of February, including London, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham. 

Three claims it will provide peak mobile speeds up to twice as fast as the other telco operators due to its ‘substantial’ 5G spectrum.   This is because they can harness a total of about 140MHz (frequency) across several related radio spectrum bands.

One of those includes a 100MHz block of contiguous spectrum in the 3.4-3.8GHz band, which is known to be the sweet spot for 5G.

‘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,’ Three CEO Dave Dyson said. 

‘5G is set to change the world for all of us and we can’t wait for our customers to start experiencing it.

Three are keen to point out athat those with a 5G-capable handset will be able to access Three’s 5G speeds at no extra cost to their existing data plan.

To mark the expansion to smartphones, Three has partnered with the Central Saint Martins art school to create an immersive 5G experience for London Fashion Week which kicks off on Friday.

It will use 360-degree audio, haptic – or touch-based – feedback and a 46-metre projection the length of the runway. 

The finale will culminate in an empty catwalk, with a 5G-fuelled digital version of model Adwoa Aboah, who will walk out in the last outfit of the show.
