It’s here. The UK’s first 5G trial is now live in Canary Wharf.

We are excited to announce EE’s first live 5G trial site, which is now live in London. EE have chosen to partner with Canary Wharf to launch 5G, as with 150,000 people, 37 office blocks and over 300 shops, this is the epicentre of UK business. The trial’s being showcased in an exhibition space right outside Canary Wharf tube station and EE will be testing their 5G spectrum and devices for their performance, speeds and coverage. Some of the people visiting our trial will be the ones who’ll use 5G to change the world…

5G is up to 10 times faster than 4G, and can process data in practically real-time. This means that EE customers will get the capacity and reliability of the fastest wired broadband network available through mobile. The impact of that will be HUGE.

You’ve probably heard about the Internet of Things; a network of physical objects all talking to each through the internet. 5G makes it possible. Picture the scene: a surgeon operating a robotic arm saves the life of a patient on the other side of the world.

Millions of driverless cars all talking to each other, making traffic jams and accidents a thing of the past. And these are just the things we can imagine now. Just think about the innovations that could be made possible by 5G.

EE are proud to be trailblazing 5G and we’ve shared this news with you and it’s creating a lot of buzz. EE will also be posting on social media, so keep an eye out and share it to inspire your contacts with the amazing possibilities of this revolutionary new technology that really will change everything.
