EE was the first UK mobile network to launch 5G early last year. Now the firm is adding more locations to this superfast service with 12 extra towns and cities now getting access to speedy downloads. EE says that areas including Aberdeen, Blackpool, Oxford and Porthcaw should see the 5G signal appear from this week. This upgrade takes the total to 112 areas now covered by EE’s 5G network.
Speaking about the update, Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer business, said: “Delivering the best mobile experience for our customers has never been more important. Our 5G rollout continues apace, with our engineers building and upgrading new sites every day to bring the latest mobile technology to even more people in the places they need it. We have 5G coverage in more places than anyone in the UK, and we remain focused on connecting many more areas this year and beyond.”
Here’s the full list of areas covered by 5G.
Aberdeen • Aldershot • Barrhead • Blackpool • Castleford • Crawley • Mirfield • Oxford • Porthcawl • Shipley • Stafford • Warwick
Of course, to access 5G you’ll need a 5G-ready phone and the range of devices available has just increased dramatically.

Samsung announced its new budget A42 5G phone earlier this week and all of Apple’s new iPhone 12 devices can now access this new technology.
The US technology firm revealed four new call makers last night including a smaller iPhone 12 Mini and ludicrously powerful iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Apple says its iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will deliver an advanced 5G experience on a global scale, engineered with a seamless integration of world-class hardware and world-class software.
The firm is also boasting that 5G on iPhone boasts improved speeds for faster downloads and uploads, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real-time interactivity in apps and FaceTime calls in high definition.
If you’re were unaware, 5G is the latest mobile technology which allows users to download files and films at over 300Mbps. That’s pretty quick and makes the UK average broadband speed of 60Mbps look decidedly sluggish.
Another benefit of 5G is that more people can access fast speeds at the same make it much more reliable at busy places such as train stations or stadiums.
All of the main UK networks are now offering 5G but EE’s latest update means it now has this tech in more places than anyone else.
