Three became the third of UK operator to offer 5G services
3 UK switched on its 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) network, becoming the third of the country’s operators to offer services over the new technology. The company turned on its 5G infrastructure in a small number of locations in central London and it’s offering a 5G home hub at 35 GBP (38 EUR) per month.
3 UK’s strategy centered on building on assets from fixed business UK Broadband it acquired in 2017. The operator plans to launch 5G mobile services in several locations by the end of the year.
Earlier in May, EE switched on its mobile 5G service, with Vodafone UK following suit in July. The country’s other operator, O2, plans to launch the technology in October.
