EE by GGGGGum

EE will launch the UK's first 5G network THIS MONTH bringing ultra-fast internet to those with enabled devices

 

Be nice if they sorted out their 3G outages first.

 

Down again this week...

Having said that after a very recent network SIM upgrade, my EE 3G signal is now stronger than ever, indoors.

 

 

 

 

The race to bring 5G to the UK is gathering pace, and EE looks like it'll be the first to launch the new high-speed and ultra-connected service.

At a press event in London, EE announced it's set to flick the switch on 5G on May 30, cutting way ahead of Vodafone's 5G launch date on July 3.

 

The networks will launch in six cities - London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and Belfast, with plans to expand to more by the end of 2019 and even more in 2020.

I'm very happy with my 3G basic phones which handle calls and texts both ways and are unlikely to be hacked.

 

And in Manchester...

Re: EE by GGGGGum

Trouble is, it will only be of any benefit if you have a 5G enabled phone. I certainly don't have any intention to rush out and buy a new phone (mine is 3 yrs old) just to get an overpriced speed increase. My phone works fine on 4G. Even streaming Netflix/Youtube without any pauses.

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

Live BBC broadcast over 5G network on launch day fails

 

This was humiliating for EE & 5G

 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/business-48463651/live-bbc-broadcast-over-5g-network-on-launch-day-fai...

 

The BBC's Clive Myrie was attempting to talk to a reporter about the launch of 5G whilst using the technology to broadcast live from central London, but the network cut out. The presenter apologised to viewers saying, 'I'll have to interrupt you because bizarrely the 5G line isn't working properly'.

 

However, Earlier in the day, the BBC's technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones was able to broadcast in high definition using 5G.

ARM and Google have sabotaged the Huawei 5G network and taken their chips and software away Smiley

You can always rely on those with right leaning tendencies to misrepresent the situation

You mean they complied with an order signed in by a racist wotsit and his xenophobic/jingoistic administration, dressing up what is just part of the ongoing trade war as 'security concerns' as evidenced by the fact he is willing to overlook the so called concerns for a 'nice deal'

5g will only be any good when every other lamppost has an antenna on it. So I expect only a few major cities will have it for now.

It's not surprising that some places, to cover remote areas, still use what they call 1g. I guess they mean the pre gsm system or the like.

I assume if these g's keep going up they will require more and more antennas until people will end up actually plugging them into the antennas. Which would bring us full circle back to "landlines".

It wasn't a failure of the technology though, they simply just hit the data cap
