Three has confirmed that its done lots of successful 5G trials in London, and as a result it will be launching a 5G home broadband service in the capital this August. 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. On top of that it's promised 5G mobile and broadband services will launch in 25 towns and cities across the United Kingdom before the end of the 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. Vodafone for comparison has just 50Mhz of 5G spectrum, while EE and O2 have just 40MHz. 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".

A "true" 5G experience requires 100MHz of 5G spectrum according to the ITU (the global standards body on 5G technology), so based on that Three is the only United Kingdom network in a position to offer "true" 5G on day one.

United Kingdom mobile operator Three on Monday said it would launch its first new-generation 5G broadband service in London in August and would roll out mobile and broadband across 25 towns and cities before the end of the year.

Hazard bids goodbye after sealing Madrid move, Football News & Top Stories
He scored 110 goals in 352 appearances for Chelsea and in his final match helped them become Europa League champions. And one Real Madrid legend has made an intriguing revelation regarding the mega-money switch.

Three said its 2 billion pound ($2.55 billion) 5G infrastructure investment included network improvements in major British cities and a cloud core network provided by Nokia.

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

EE has already said that peak speeds on its 5G network right now could exceed 1Gbps, so if both EE and Three are right, then that would mean peak speeds of over 2Gbps on Three's 5G network, which is seriously fast.
