The UK's 5G roll-out date revealed

5G will be rolled out in seven cities in the UK on July 3rd.

Vodafone look set to become the first carrier to bring the high-speed internet data service to Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London.

By the end of the year, they are planning to launch 5G in Birkenhead, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Newbury, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington and Wolverhampton; a total of 19 cities.

Plus 5G roaming will be available to use in Germany, Italy, and Spain.

However, EE has also announce their plans to launch their 5G network the summer, which could happen before Vodafone, with no set released date confirmed yet.

The company is due to make a 5G-related announcement at the OnePlus 7 smartphone launch later today (14.05.19).

Meanwhile, Three and O2 are working to roll-out the service some point this year.
