BT has officially rolled out 5G access to 50 UK cities and large towns, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Belfast, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool, Hull, Sunderland, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry, Bristol and Wakefield and Wolverhampton. BT customers with 5G-enabled handsets can sign up to different price plans, which start from £45/month, to enjoy superfast 5G internet speeds.
Pete Oliver, managing director of marketing, BT consumer, said: “Our BT Halo customers have been some of the first to enjoy 5G in the UK, and we’re now giving all of our customers the chance to get superfast, reliable mobile connections even in the busiest places.
“Whether you’re watching HD TV or sport on the go, or FaceTiming your family on the way home, 5G makes a huge difference to everyday experiences and opens up even more exciting new experiences like seamless augmented reality and HD mobile gaming.”
Ernest Doku, a mobiles expert, said: “This move makes 5G a possibility for you if you live in 50 towns and cities including London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Manchester and Edinburgh.
“If you’re considering making the leap to 5G, first check what coverage you can expect – both at your home and place of work – by going to the provider’s website.
“Also bear in mind that 5G is a hungry beast when it comes to gobbling data, so it’s worth looking for the unlimited data tariffs offered by some providers.”
