Default UK's first 5G EE's service launches in six cities including Belfast

But without Huawei larger Infrastructure
it's not going to grow al over the UK.

London, Cardiff, Belfast, Edinburgh,
Birmingham and Manchester are the
first areas to benefit from the next-generation technology.

Last week, EE chief executive Marc Allera said the company had decided to "pause" the sale
of 5G smartphones manufactured by Huawei as the Chinese company battles security concerns.
Samsung, LG and HTC are among the other brands who make compatible handsets.

[Three has said its 5G rollout could be delayed by 18 months if the government bans Huawei's equipment]

[EE's coverage map of Manchester shows that only
some areas - marked dark green - will get a 5G signal ]

[BT's EE subsidiary is the first to launch a service - and if you're feeling wealthy enough
and live in the right place, you can sign up.
The lowest-priced deal is £54 a month plus a one-off £170 fee for a compatible handset.
But bear in mind that buys you only 10GB of data a month, which you will be likely
to chew through fairly quickly if you take advantage of the
next-generation technology to download lots of media.
For many people, it may make sense to wait - and not just to take advantage
of rival offers from Vodafone, which starts its own 5G service in about five weeks.
The two operators are launching in select cities only.
And even there, the connectivity will be patchy, sometimes offering only outdoor connectivity,
sometimes none at all - so customers will probably default
to a slower 4G signal much of the time.]

Sign Of The Times.
