Mobile network operator O2 has switched on its 5G network today, bringing O2 5G services to five UK cities.
Today’s 5G switch flip by O2 marks the last major mobile operator in the UK to do so as O2’s competitors Vodafone and EE have already switch on their 5G networks. BT turned on its services last week using EE’s (which it owns) infrastructure.
O2 customers with 5G support devices will be able to use the service in the UK cities; Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Leeds. The town where O2 is headquartered, Slough, will become the first town in the UK
