The London Stadium hosts a range of sports, including football, rugby and athletics 

EE has announced that its 5G service has been installed at The London Stadium.

The stadium, which hosted the London 2012 Olympics, and is currently home to Premier League side West Ham United, will provide sports fan with a much faster mobile experience.

The installation of 5G in the stadium will add more capacity on site to ensure more reliable and consistent mobile usage.

This will support up to 80,000 people at selected events, which is the ground’s capacity.

London Stadium CEO Graham Gilmore said: “We want to give our fans the best possible experience when they visit our stadium, the upgrade to 5G means that whether you’re coming to London Stadium to watch the football, baseball, rugby, athletics or a concert, you will always have the ability to be connected and have the best that technology has to offer.”

EE special projects team Adis Omeragic added: “5G is the next generation of mobile technology, enabling people to stay connected when they need it most.

“The speeds and reliability of EE’s 5G network at London Stadium will enhance the mobile experience for visitors, ensuring they can stay in touch with friends and family, and share highlights from their visit in real time.”

The installation of 5G comes eight years on from when EE switched on 4G at the Olympics Stadium for the 2012 Olympic Games.
