uSwith broadband expert Dani Warner said: "Three's 5G plans will have significant repercussions across both the mobile and broadband industry, particularly with the announcement that 5G home broadband is part of the roll-out".

Three has become the latest British mobile operator to signal the arrival of a 5G network in the United Kingdom, with the launch slated for August this year.

The locations to be switched-on in the first batch are Birmingham, Bolton, Bradford, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Coventry, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Reading, Rotherham, Sheffield, Slough, Sunderland and Wolverhampton.

Forget 4G - Three has now revealed that its 5G network will be landing in August, with peak speeds that are at least 2x faster than other mobile networks.

The move ollows EE which launched its 5G network last month.

3 United Kingdom expects the 5G network to expand to cover 80 percent of its network traffic within three years.

Over the next three years, Three's 5G rollout will continue to ramp up to cover 80 per cent of its network traffic.

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

"It's clear that consumers and businesses want more and more data", said Dave Dyson, CEO at Three. The press release also says that Three's the only network "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".

Three will be announcing more details and pricing in July. Furthermore, Three isn't ignoring its 4G network (which has always been a bit spottier than the others), promising a 400% improvement in both speed and capacity by deploying more 4G spectrum and converting old 3G spectrum.

"By the time full fibre does reach many people - with 2033 still the government's target for full coverage - they may very well be perfectly happy with 5G mobile broadband connections". This includes a new 5G-ready cloud core network provided by Nokia. Meanwhile, Vodafone's 5G network will arrive on July 3rd.
