EE expanding 5G coverage to Rochdale

Date published: 07 October 2019


EE has announced that it is expanding its 5G coverage to a number of towns around Manchester, including Rochdale.

As well as covering the busiest hotspots in its six launch cities, EE is also expanding coverage around the cities to reach busy towns and suburbs.

Around Greater Manchester, 5G is being brought to areas around Rochdale, Oldham, Ashton-under-Lyne and Salford. 

In the West Midlands, EE is rolling out coverage around Solihull, Dudley, Sutton Coldfield, West Bromwich, and Lichfield. Spreading out from London, EE is launching 5G in Kingston-upon-Thames, Grays, Romford, Chatham and Gillingham.

Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer division, said: “Switching on 5G in more busy places will help to keep our customers connected to the things that matter to them the most.

“Our engineers are building new 5G sites every day and increasing capacity on 4G sites – all part of our ambition to keep all of our customers connected 100% of the time.”

EE switched on the UK’s first 5G network in May 2019. With coverage now in more than 20 large towns and cities, the EE 5G network is available in more places than any other UK 5G network.

Three new cities will be switched onto 5G this week – Bristol, Leicester and Coventry - and EE is aiming to deliver 5G to a further seven large cities in 2019 – Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield and Nottingham.
