5G is continuing to roll out
In spite of current restrictions, the major UK networks are continuing to rollout 5G and it looks to be gaining traction with more and more handsets utilising the technology.
What is 5G?
5G is the fifth generation of the technology used to deliver the mobile internet.
Its premise is to be up to 100 times faster than 4G and 2,000 times faster than 3G. It won’t replace these, but instead will be another ‘layer’ on top which runs at much higher and faster frequencies.
When will most get access to 5G?
5G is a gradual roll-out, with most of the UK expected to have 5G in 2022.
5G officially arrived in the UK at the end of May 2019, though only two networks – EE and Vodafone – initially offered 5G plans. But since then, all four major networks now offer 5G in selected areas, although coverage is not nationwide yet. Most networks still have a target of 2022 for full rollout.
