EE will switch on its 5G service in six UK cities on 30 May.
After yet another lengthy network outage yesterday, the telecommunications giant is to be the first provider to launch a 5G service with absolutely no reception before the end of the month.
Keeping in line with their policy of very limited service for customers,
EE will give people in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester the opportunity to get faster services
but with no reception
before they unleash plans for 10 more cities to given the
upgrade later this year.
A loyal EE customer said, “I can’t wait for this. I mean, I’m on EE already and I have no reception on my 4G phone, so I can’t wait to be on a much better 5G phone with exactly the same reception.
“My internet connection will literally be 150 times faster than at present. Because 150 times zero is still zero!”
Prices for 5G will start at around £54 per month for 10 gigabytes of data.
The plan will ensure you still have 10 gigabytes of data by the end of the month.
EE say there will be no outage for in the implementation of 5G later this month.
At least, not on top of the usual ones.
