The mobile operator says it is now the UK’s biggest 5G network.
Three’s 5G network is now available in more than 400 locations across 3,000 sites. A spokesperson for the company says this coverage has been achieved using spectrum in the 3.6 GHz band.
Three cites data from analytics firm Ookla which suggests its network is also the fastest amongst UK mobile operators.
The company says these coverage improvements complement the major growth in customer data consumption. Average data consumption among customers has increased by 15% from last year to 20Gb a month.
“We are relentlessly focussed on delivering the UK’s biggest and fastest 5G network for the UK,” said David Hennessy, Chief Technology Officer, Three UK.
