The UK’s first 5G mobile broadband plans are now available from EE, allowing users to get “the fastest speeds” even while working out and about.
Plans come with HTC’s 5G Hub which can support up to 20 devices at a time and features a 5-inch HD capacitive touchscreen, voice control and a built-in Gigabit ethernet port.
Running Android 9 Pie, the Hub is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and also includes 32GB internal storage which can be used to store media directly on the device, access to Google Assistant and a loudspeaker for media playback.
The smart hub is available from EE for a one-off upfront fee of £100 with either 50GB of monthly data on a £50 per month, 24-month 5GEE WiFi plan, or with 100GB on a £75 per month.
The network’s 5G service is now live in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester, and is coming to ten more UK cities during 2019.
Edward Goff, Marketing Director, EE said: “Our 5G network will give EE customers even faster, more reliable mobile WiFi connections where they need it most – whether online gaming on the move, downloading or streaming HD content, or simply keeping a fast connection in the busiest areas.
“With the HTC 5G Hub, we’re seeing mobile experiences typically associated with tablets and smartphones combined with the practicality of a mobile broadband device and portable battery.
“With such a diverse product, we’re the only UK network that allows users to enjoy the fastest mobile connectivity in more places.”
