BT has confirmed it will offer 5G mobile plans to its residential and business customers from this autumn, starting with those on a BT Plus package.
The company’s EE brand was the first to launch 5G mobile services in the UK this May and BT says its own brand divisions will be the first to offer the service as part of a converged mobile and broadband package.
5G for BT mobile customers will initially be available in the busiest parts of London, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Belfast, Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol, with further rollouts around the country promised.
Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division, said: “We’re bringing together the best fibre and mobile connections to help keep our customers connected, both on the go and at home.
“Launching 5G for BT customers will give them the opportunity to experience the fastest mobile speeds in the busiest areas of the UK, and our BT Plus customers will have the first opportunity to sign up for 5G.”
Further details on the launch of 5G for BT Plus customers including 5G device availability will be announced in due course.
