EE aims for 5G coverage everywhere in UK by 2028

EE customers will be able to receive 5G "anywhere" in the UK by 2028, the phone network has announced, with half the population covered in two years' time.

It will also add 4,500 square miles of new rural 4G coverage by 2025.

In some remote locations, coverage will be "on demand" delivered by portable cells, drones and satellites.

The expansion of 3G services will come to an end, with customers across EE, BT Mobile and Plusnet being "phased off" in the next two years.

The company said its 5G network, would "grow to cover half of the UK population by early 2023, four years ahead of the UK Government's ambition.
