C114 Beijing time on September 12 (Es) According to foreign media reports, the British mobile operator EE has confirmed that the company will launch 5G mobile services in the UK in 2019, compared with many other European neighbors a year earlier.

EE will open 5G networks in 2019, some of which will be built by upgrading existing 4G base stations. The company will also reuse the 3G spectrum it purchased in 2004 to improve 4G availability on its current network.

"Our customers need fast and reliable 4G connections, and that's what we're trying to offer them. We are leveraging our investment in 3G spectrum nearly 15 years ago to give customers a good experience with the latest 4G smartphones and to lay the foundation for 5G development in 2019. We are constantly developing, and the 5G customer experience will be determined by the quality of the underlying 4G network. BT (British Telecom) consumer business CEO Marc Allera said. BT acquired EE in 2016.

As customer demand for ultra-high-speed services continues to grow, EE will upgrade a large number of 3G base stations to support 4G, thereby enhancing network connectivity in London, Birmingham, Manchester and other regions.
