In the UK, 5G coverage has already been announced for more than 50 towns and cities. Find out when 5G networks will launch in your area.

The introduction of 5G mobile networks is rapidly gaining pace, with more than 50 UK towns and cities already having a confirmed launch date for 5G.

In this article, we’ll help you to keep track of when 5G coverage will be available in your area and which 5G mobile networks you’re able to use. We’re monitoring the the latest 5G announcements from EE, O2, Three and Vodafone in order to keep this guide up-to-date for your town or city.

If you’re living in a 5G coverage area and would like a 5G-ready price plan, see our guide to 5G SIM-only deals. At the time of writing, you can get a 5G price plan from £15/month. This will also work on 3G & 4G networks until 5G coverage finally launches in your area.

Overview: 5G Coverage By Network

  • EE
  • O2
  • Three
  • Vodafone

In the UK, there are four network coverage providers: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Each of them is currently going through the process of launching a 5G mobile service which will deliver greater network capacity, lower latency and faster download speeds.

The following table gives a summary of the key announcements so far as to which towns and cities you’ll be able to use 5G coverage in:

Vodafone is currently in the lead with the most towns and cities enabled for 5G coverage. However, this is likely to change over the next few months as Three is planning to launch 5G coverage in 25 towns and cities before the end of 2019.

BT Mobile offers 5G coverage using EE’s network to customers who have a BT Plus plan and a 5G-ready smartphone. Sky Mobile have also confirmed that they’ll be launching a 5G service in 2019. Sky uses O2 as their network coverage provider so you can expect them to offer 5G in the same towns and cities as O2.

5G Coverage In Major Towns & Cities

Unsurprising, it’s the UK’s largest towns and cities that are getting 5G coverage before the rest of the country.

All 15 of the UK’s largest towns and cities will have a 5G signal before the end of the year. However, due to the staggered roll-out of 5G, different 5G mobile networks will be available in each city. This is summarised in the table below:

Read on to find out more about the 5G roll out in different regions of the UK.

5G Coverage: By Region

Eastern England

At the moment, 5G coverage isn’t available in the East of England. Norwich will be the first city to get 5G in this region, with O2 currently planning to have their service live before the end of 2019.

5G coverage will then launch in Cambridge, Norwich and Peterborough during 2020:

London

Unsurprisingly, London is the epicentre of the UK’s 5G coverage roll out.

All four mobile networks offer 5G coverage in London. However, coverage across the city can still be patchy in some places so it’s worth double-checking it for the areas where you live and work. You can do this on the EE, O2, Three and Vodafone websites.

More Information

If you’d like to get started on a 5G price plan, see our guide to 5G SIM Only deals. Alternatively, you can also visit your mobile network’s website for more information about their 5G launch plans (e.g. see the EE, O2, Three and Vodafone websites).

We'd love to hear your thoughts and any questions you may have. So far, we've received 53 comments from readers. You can add your own comment here.

  • Jon Neighbour said:

    Only a few select parts of Plymouth are covered by Vodafone 5G – and not the City Centre at all. Was planned to be properly live in September – but still not live despite them selling me a 5G router in July and telling me it was live. Very frustrating!

  • I live in zone one London, Edgware Road to be precise which is close walking distance to Baker Street and Oxford Street and still no 5G. Why I even struggle to get just 4G. So, do not tell me that London is covered because it is not, only a very small percentage is under ‘Testing’, which is a far cry from Lond 5G active.

    Unless you can guarantee a great connection that will remain solid especially after the 14 day cancelation period (you would be surprised how many connections drop after this period.) stay away from 5G until they have it configured 100% otherwise you may find yourselves tide into crapola contracts for long periods where watching buildings rise and fall will be a lot quicker than your connection speeds.

  • Wow 5g is terrible in Manchester my device is being returned on Monday looks like it will be another year till it’s up and running properly

  • Hi there,

    Can you add Walsall to the list since EE is already live in walsall and Three has confirmed that Walsall will have 5G at the same time they Launch 5G in Birmigham and Wolverhampton (End of December)

  • Hi Ken – If you look at some of the coverage maps (EE in London) it looks like almost the entire Zone 2 London is covered with some small gaps. Do you think this coverage is actually real? I haven’t read any updated articles on actually using a 5G phone since the launch back in May. Thoughts?

    • Hi Brian,
      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, I haven’t actually tested this out for myself on EE in Zone 2, so it’s difficult for me to comment on the completeness of coverage. My understanding, however, is that EE does have more comprehensive 5G coverage than other networks in the cities they currently serve.
      Ken

    • Hi Buggerlugs,
      Thanks for your comment. Yes, the new frequency is being used to deploy 5G-NR technology, which is spectrally much more efficient than 4G-LTE. Therefore, the total amount of bandwidth should dramatically increase on the networks (which will also benefit 4G users, as some usage migrates over to 5G). Eventually, I imagine we’ll see some 4G spectrum being “upgraded” or “converted” to 5G, which will give a further increase in capacity as well – albeit, I imagine it’ll probably be about half a decade before that starts to happen.
      Hope this helps,
      Ken

    • Hi Terry,
      Sadly, I don’t think Three have announced 5G coverage for Newcastle just yet. I imagine it’ll probably come sometime next year (so far, they’ve only confirmed their 2019 launch plans).
      Ken

      • Thanks for the info Ken my contract ends in January and was hoping it was going be done too but I guess 3 will have to step up if they want to keep there clients happy

  • Hi Ken its looking like January for ee 5g in Oldham ee said the rollout is well in front of schedule across the whole of the UK but have no dates set in stone as it’s bt openreach installing it

    • Hi Jozef,
      I believe Three should have 5G in Bradford before the end of the year. O2 have also said that they’ll be launching 5G in Bradford sometime during summer 2020.
      Ken

    • Hi Ian,
      Sadly, I haven’t heard anything about Oldham yet. The good news is it’s now available in Manchester, so hopefully it’ll spread out from there and launch in Oldham soon as well.
      Ken

  • Will I have 5G available in BS6 very soon, as I noticed some Bristol postcodes already have it according to the coverage checker map ?

    • Hi Wendy,
      I believe Vodafone have started rolling out 5G coverage in Bristol. I don’t have any more information about the exact postcodes that are covered, so I’d probably just keep a close eye on their coverage map – fingers crossed this will be available in your area very soon1

  • Veronique Almaraz said:

    Hi i have been reading about 5g and how harmful it is!!!!! There is a lot of science to prove the theory of how bad 5g is to all living things. Do you agree ? Please just do not say its safe i need prove it is and explain why other scientist and tecs say its harmful. I have seen many videos and articles about how harmful 5g is…would love for Ken to comment since he is a graduate from Imperial college and would know . Hopefully he gets back to us. As i am a concern parent for my boys.

    • Hi Veronique,
      There’s a lot of misinformation out there on potential health risks of 5G, and I definitely don’t think there’s anything you need to worry about here 🙂 Firstly, 5G is just a new technical standard that your mobile phone can use to communicate with the networks. Like other types of networks, it’s a radio-based technology (just like Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, 4G, FM radio, TV, Bluetooth, etc). Currently, 5G mobile networks use radio waves around 3.4-3.6GHz. This sits in the middle of two frequencies that have been used for Wi-Fi for many years (2.4GHz and 5GHz). It’s non-ionising radiation with low energy (and certainly far too little to interfere with cells).

    • Hi Charlie,
      I haven’t heard anything about these areas just yet. Fingers crossed, and we’ll keep this page updated as soon as there’s an announcement 🙂

  • Can you add Walsall onto the List… Three has already confirmed it’s planning to bring 5G to walsall. Three is planning 5G in walsall at the end of 2019

    • Hi Emma,
      We’ll add Walsall to this list as soon as a launch date for 5G has been confirmed! I don’t believe Walsall is currently on the list of towns & cities with a confirmed launched date for 5G on Three (though do let me know if I’m mistaken and if they’ve announced it somewhere else).
      Thanks,
      Ken

    hi Ken
    how much area cover 5G tower as i am living in the middle of your 2 mentioned towns where Newcastle is about 8 miles and Sunderland is about 12 miles away?
    And when 5G will be available like 4G
    Thanks

    • Hi Muhammad,
      Thanks for your comment. The best way to check this is by using the relevant coverage checker for your network. Just tap on the relevant “check coverage” link for your mobile network here. You’ll be able to enter your postcode, to see if 5G coverage is available where you live.
      Hope this helps,
      Ken

    • Hi John,
      Sadly, no mobile network has yet announced a launch date for 5G for Walsall 🙁 However, I’ll make sure this guide is listed as soon as they do!

    My home near Bognor Regis is to be a safe haven as I am told the local council has no plans for using 5G for street lights. However my same question regarding 5G towers etc has not yet been answered, maybe ignored? plenty of towers appearing!!
    I belong to the Bognor ‘Stop 5g group’ and have today written to my doctors surgery to ensure they are aware of the dangers of 5G.
    Thank you for the great work, please continue for the sake of everyone.
