While most of the big phone networks in the UK launched their 5G networks in 2019, we've had to wait until early 2020 for Three to do the same, and now we know when the company is set to press that big red button & # 39; 5G & # 39 ;.
Three is committed to connecting its network at the end of February in 65 locations, including London, Manchester, Cardiff, Reading and Bristol.
There are many launch cities, and much more than other networks: EE launched its 5G in eight cities and O2 in six. Then, 5G fans in places like Barrow-in-Furness, Clayton-Le-Woods, Shelly Green, Hedge Green, Inchinnan and Hemel Hempstead will soon also have access to the next generation network.
It is worth noting that since then other networks have extended their coverage to many more cities than they launched, but we are not very sure that other networks prioritize coverage for the Scottish people of Inchinnan (pop: 1,574 according to Wikipedia)
Part of the attraction of the Three 5G network over others is its expanded bandwidth, which should make the 5G experience a bit faster, although we will have to try a Three 5G phone in your network to see if this is really the case.
Three does not refer to any particular 5G phone in its launch announcement, but already includes some on its website, including the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus and the Galaxy S20 Ultra .
The last two are only available for pre-order at this time, since the Samsung Galaxy S20 phone series will be available from March 13 in the United Kingdom, which will be after the launch of the Three 5G network assuming it is scheduled
We still don't know the exact date from which you can use the Three 5G network in the UK, but we will let you know as soon as we find out.
