Three launching United Kingdom 5G network in August

Three will switch on its '2x faster' 5G network in August

The telecoms company will kick off with a home broadband service in the capital but is also launching mobile services.

Media captionBBC News puts 5G connectivity to the test on two phones, downloading a podcast.

Three head Dave Dyson announced: "It is clear that consumers and businesses want more and more data".

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

EE launched 5G services in six cities in May, while Vodafone will launch on July 3.

The technology can offer 20-times faster data speeds than 4G long-term evolution (LTE) networks and better support for artificial intelligence and virtual reality with low latency.

However, there have been concerns about the pricing and connectivity of such services. But, Huawei's Mate 20 X 5G may not be on its list as both EE and Vodafone also dropped the handset over the manufacturer's uncertain future.

The race for 5G is hotting up - even if Three is arriving with what feels like rather a lukewarm offering.

Following successful trials with customers in London, Three UK has confirmed it will launch 5G in August with a 5G home broadband service in London. Note that these networks have more spectrum than that in total, it's just not spectrum that's ideal for 5G use.

The superfast speeds will apparently be possible through a combination of high capacity smart antennas and having more than twice as much 5G spectrum as its closest rival, with 140MHz overall (compared to 40MHz or 50MHz from rivals).

Rival operator EE launched their 5G network last week, and Vodafone is due to begin rolling out its own network at the beginning of July. The firm said that once its services are launched, "peak mobile speeds will be at least 2x faster than other mobile network operators and will provide a more reliable connection and experience for customers".

The Three 5G mobile network will initially be introduced to: London, Birmingham, Bolton, Bradford, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Coventry, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Reading, Rotherham, Sheffield, Slough, Sunderland and Wolverhampton.
