BT Group's EE to launch 5G services in 16 British cities next year

Nov 13 (Reuters) - Mobile network operator EE, part of Britain’s top telecoms company BT Group, said on Tuesday it would launch next-generation 5G wireless services in 16 British cities next year.

The network would first be rolled out in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester and later in ten more cities, upgrading some 1,500 sites to 5G to start with, EE said.

EE rival Vodafone said in September it would have 1,000 5G-enabled network sites in Britain by 2020 capable of delivering blisteringly fast speeds and near-instant response times. (Reporting by Noor Zainab Hussain in Bengaluru; Editing by Sai Sachin Ravikumar)
