Three UK 5G Rollout

Read Time:2 Minute, 42 Second

Three UK have given us an update in regards to their 5G rollout. And so far, things are looking very promising, for those lucky 154 towns and cities that Three’s 5G service is now rolling out too.

The update also brings the start of Ericsson’s 5G site rollout – which is now live in Manchester, Glasgow and Reading.

At the moment, my small town still can’t get decent 4G (from most networks, not just Three). So I’m hoping that a site upgrade is coming my soon.

Three UK continues rollout of 5G across the UK

  • Three UK have 5G live in 154towns and cities being serviced by over 800 sites across the UK
  • 5G network is recognised as the fastest in UK in Q3, according to Ookla
  • Partnership with Ericsson includes rollout of 5G and improvements to 4G network
  • Rollout of Ericsson 5G sites has begun in Manchester, Glasgow and Reading

Three UK continues the rollout of its 5G network with the launch of its first Ericsson 5G sites which are now live for our customers in Manchester, Glasgow and Reading.  

Three launched 5G back in August 2019 and is now available to customers in 154towns and cities being serviced by over 800 sites across the UK. Customers using Three’s 5G service will benefit from the UK’s fastest 5G network with median download speeds in excess of 200Mbps in Q3, according to Ookla*. 

The new sites mark the beginning of the next stage of Three’s 5G rollout which will see the connectivity extended to many more areas across the country.

Three became one of over 100 service providers worldwide to establish a 5G commercial agreement with Ericsson back in July. The partnership will help boost network efficiency and enable a cost-effective and rapid extension of 5G across the UK.

Susan Buttsworth, Chief Operating Officer at Three UK said:

“We’re pleased to have our first Ericsson sites live on our network. Ericsson are a key partner in the transformation of our network. Our customers use 3.5 times more data than the industry average so the investments that we are making are vital to enhancing current performance of our 4G network, futureproofing it and delivering on our promise of providing better connectivity, every day for every customer.”

The partnership with Ericsson to rollout our 5G network is part of a £2billion investment into the transformation of Three UKs Network and IT infrastructure, and also includes huge improvements to our 4G network. 

As part of this investment, we have also launched 20 new data centres, made significant improvements to our fibre backhaul capabilities and completed the rollout of VoLTE across our entire 4G network.

All of these improvements are helping us ensure better connectivity, every day, for every customer.
