5G launches in 21 new towns and cities

The guys at EE have flicked the switch so that 21 more 5G destinations are now available. It brings the total EE 5G locations to 71, which is more than any other operator.

Areas benefitting include Rugeley, which is just up the road from where I’m sat, plus Swadlincote, which again isn’t far from me either. I smell some 5G testing ahead.

Other areas with super-speedy data include Birkenhead, Rotherham, Bath, Bransholme, Bury, Chelmsford, Chesnut in Hertfordshire, Clevedon, Dartford, Dinnington, Loughborough, Loughton, North Shields, South Shields, Rochester, Staines, Waltham Cross plus Clydebank and Motherwell in Scotland.

It’s been around ten months since EE launched 5G in the UK and the amount of masts getting upgraded and built expands daily.

Mark Winnington from Staffordshire County Council told us..

Not only will 5G allow people to stream music and videos more quickly, but it will also help local businesses to grow and increase their productivity.

RootMetrics has labelled the EE 5G network as having the highest average download speed.
