The 5G network will make its debut in London in August in the form of a home broadband service, Three announced on Monday.

The launches are part of Three's £2 billion ($2.5 billion) 5G infrastructure investment commitment.

It holds spectrum in the 140MHz block, including access to a 100MHz contiguous black that can potential provide faster 5G speeds.

Three said its 5G mobile network will deliver peak mobile speeds twice as fast as other mobile network operators in the region.

Meanwhile, a built-in Twitch sidebar lets you watch streams and receive notifications while you browse. This includes its built-in ad blocker, support for detachable video popups, and a built-in VPN.

Dave Dyson, CEO at Three, said: "It's clear that consumers and businesses want more and more data".

Three CEO Dave Dyson said in a statement that it was "clear that consumers and businesses want more and more data", and that "5G is a game changer for Three, and of course I am excited that we will be the only operator in the United Kingdom who can offer true 5G". Nokia is providing Three with its cloud core network for the 5G buildout. But while that's later than EE or Vodafone, Three looks to have some advantages, as it claims to be the only United Kingdom network that will be offering a "true" 5G experience. Note that these networks have more spectrum than that in total, it's just not spectrum that's ideal for 5G use. 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. Then things changed. Last May EE said it was aiming for a 2019 launch (which it accomplished), in September Vodafone also confirmed it wanted consumer 5G to be available this year, and back in February O2 pulled its launch date forward as well.

Andrea Dona, head of Vodafone's United Kingdom mobile networks, said: "In the medium term, we will be switching off 3G, because the use of the 3G band and what we get in return is not that efficient so we can use some of the 3G spectrum bands for 5G".

"Then we don't have to waste higher frequency, like the USA are using the millimetre wave. we can use the low band which is more efficient".
