Telecoms company Three has announced on Monday that they are to launch their 5G network in London this August.

The telecoms company are to then launch the 5G service in 25 other UK towns and cities by the end of 2019, kicking off with a home broadband service across London along with mobile services.

EE launched their 5G in May and Vodafone are to introduce 5G in seven cities on the 3 July and will be the first ever network to launch 5G roaming overseas.

Dave Dyson, chief executive of Three said, “It’s clear that consumers and businesses want more and more data.

“We have worked hard over a long period of time to be able to offer the best end-to-end 5G experience.”

Three are claiming that they will provide the fastest UK 5G network as they have twice as much of the 5G spectrum compared to their rivals.

Vodafone holds 50MHz, EE holds 40MHz and Three claim that they hold 140MHz of the 5G spectrum.

Three said in a press release, “Three is the only operator who can offer a ‘true’ 5G experience which requires 100MHz of 5G spectrum, as set out by the ITU, the global standards body on 5G technology.

“At launch, peak mobile speeds will be at least 2x faster than other mobile network operators and will provide a more reliable connection and experience for customers.”
