5G is the connectivity that will completely transform the way we live.
The power of 5G on personal and business devices will give everyone a better and more reliable connection in extra busy places, delay-free downloads and buffer-free streaming. But it’s 5G’s impact on the world around us that’s even more exciting. This new technology has the power to connect buildings, transport and services in ways we’ve never seen, completely revolutionising everything from the way traffic flows on our roads, to the way we receive health care.
O2 5G will unlock new experiences around all the things that matter most, so you can live life without wasting a moment.
When is 5G coming?
o2 will be switching on its 5G network from October 2019, beginning with areas of Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London, Slough and Leeds. By the end of the year, it is planning to bring its 5G network to parts of 20 towns and cities, before rolling out to a total of 50 by summer 2020. Keep an eye on their coverage checker to see when you’ll get 5G in the places you work, live and play.
To make sure you get 5G where you need it most, O2 will be targeting transport hubs, key business areas and entertainment and sports venues, including The O2 and Twickenham Stadium. They will also be working with major UK businesses including Network Rail and Northumbrian Water Group to help build the 5G economy.
If you’re on an O2 Custom plan, you’ll be able to upgrade to a 5G phone when the time’s right for you.
