The operator also claims to have the fastest 5G network in the UK

Three UK claims that it has the UK’s biggest coverage of 5G connectivity across the country.

The operator says it has reached 54 per cent coverage, with the service available in more than 400 locations across more than 3,000 sites.

Three has invested heavily in 5G as part of its £2bn network transformation.

It comes as EE recently announced it has surpassed 5G network coverage of 50 per cent.

Three UK has also claimed that it has the UK’s fastest 5G network, something that is independently verified by Ookla.

Three UK chief technology officer David Hennessy said: “We are relentlessly focussed on delivering the UK’s biggest and fastest 5G network for the UK. Millions of mobile, business and home broadband customers across more than half the UK’s population are able to access our superfast speeds enabling them to live their digital lives to the fullest.”

The operator plans to switch off its 3G network by the end of 2024 and has also upgrading its 4G network with thousands of sites, which will serve customers with up to 150 per cent faster speeds.
