EE switches on 5G in 35 more Towns and Cities

Top tourist landmarks and coastal locations including Brighton Pier, York Minster, Swansea Bay and Sandbanks

EE has switched on 5G in thirty five new UK locations, taking the number of towns and cities with access to the operator’s 5G network to 160.

The firm’s new data network is now available in Burton-upon-Trent, Cannock, Grimsby, Halifax, Ipswich, Leamington Spa, Middlesbrough, Neath, Portishead, St Albans, Stockport, Swinton and Tamworth.

EE has added outdoor 5G coverage to some of the UK’s most popular tourist landmarks, historical sites, and coastal locations as lockdown restrictions start to ease and non-essential retail stores, hospitality venues and attractions begin to reopen from next week.

According to VisitEngland’s Great Britain Tourism Survey, more than 122 million domestic overnight trips were taken in Great Britain in 2019, with more than 27 million of those to seaside locations.

Once open in the coming weeks, EE customers can use 5G technology at:

  • Brighton Pier
  • Exeter Cathedral
  • Norwich Cathedral
  • Paignton Sands
  • Sandbanks Beach, Poole
  • Swansea Maritime Quarter & Swansea Bay
  • V&A Museum, Dundee
  • York Minster & York Museum Gardens

Residents, businesses, and visitors in 160 UK towns and cities can now benefit from EE’s 5G network, with the technology today switched on in:

In addition, EE is set to achieve the milestone of reaching one million active 5G customers –those which have a 5G plan and a 5G-enabled device – this month. London, Birmingham and Manchester are the top three home cities of those using EE’s 5G network, followed by Glasgow, Bristol, Nottingham, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds and Leicester.

Marc Allera, chief executive of BT’s consumer division, said:

We’ve announced that we’ve switched on our award-winning 5G network in a further 35 towns and cities across the UK, fulfilling the commitment we set last year to double our 5G place count.

With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions expected in the coming weeks and months, the increased capacity and faster speeds of our 5G network will ensure our customers stay connected as footfall starts to increase in historically busy places.
