EE has officially announced an expansion to 14 new towns and cities including Huddersfield for the first time.
Mobile Networks claim that 5G networking offers speeds several times faster than the current-generation 4G.
EE, which is owned by BT, began to roll out the 5G network in May.
The service initially launched in London, Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester.
EE now claims to have more places with 5G coverage in the UK than it’s main competitor Vodafone, with their sites set on having the connection in 45 cities and “large towns” by the end of 2019.
BT Consumer Division Chief Executive, Marc Allera, said of the update: “Switching on 5G in more places is helping us deliver the best mobile experience to our customers, keeping them connected to the things that matter the most.
“Rootmetrics’ early 5G testing shows that we are a long way ahead in terms of 5G performance and our engineers are continuing to build new sites every day, on our journey to keeping our customers connected 100 per cent of the time.”
