BT Mobile customers will be able to access 5G in 20 cities in the United Kingdom starting from Friday, October 11, the company affirmed.
The service works with the US 5G network, which was launched in May in the busiest cities of Edinburgh, London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, and Belfast. Since then, the expansion has continued with the incorporation of transport centers, critical public places, and new cities.
What’s so great about BT 5G Technology?
Notably, BT has become the 3rd largest supplier in the United Kingdom to use ultrafast technology. The first customers who will benefit from this release will be those with a converged BT service that combines ultra-broadband connectivity and mobile connectivity.
Subscribers using the 5G service will be able to access average speeds generally between 100 and 150 Mbps compared to 4G.
Marc Allera, CEO of the BT Consumer Division said,
“Our 5G provides clients with a faster and more trustworthy connection in the most crowded and busy areas of the United Kingdom during peak timings.”
The data plan
Customers with BT Plus can choose a plan from 30GB, 12GB, 200GB, or 60GB, for their smart devices (including Huawei and Samsung), and monthly cost starts at € 45.
At the same time, BT Business clients have a 5G series: a 30GB, 6GB, or 60GB mobile plan, which means that companies don’t have to worry about the yield of a growing workforce.
Halo is here
BT replaces its existing “BT Plus” convergent rates with a service called “BT Halo” that includes unlimited data and mobile calls, 5G access, and fiber connectivity. BT Halo also consists of a visit from a “home technology expert” that will help you set up various devices connected to the home.
Marc Allera noted,
“Connected life is becoming increasingly complicated, and to simplify the connection of various devices, platforms, and subscriptions BT has assembled a team of 900 experts with the aim of improving customer service.”
BT will halt offering copper broadband services in the areas where it has been deployed at a very high speed. Furthermore, up to 700k customers will receive free automatic updates for the summer of next year.
The UK telecommunication giant added that it would reveal more details about its full fiber-optic deployment and the launch of a new television service in the coming weeks.
