O2 launches 5G network in five UK cities and Slough

O2. O2 has switched on its 5G network, the last of the UK's mobile operators to do so. The network will initially be available in five cities - Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds and London. Slough, the town where O2 is headquartered, will be the first non-city to benefit from 5G, with 14 other towns and cities to follow this year. Mark Evans, chief executive of Telefónica UK, which owns O2, said: "We're launching with a range of tariffs that make it easy and fair for customers to access 5G, with flexible plans that cost no more than 4G. We're also switching on 5G in important parts of towns and cities first, places where it will benefit customers and businesses most." While 5G is currently available in dozens of cities in the UK, coverage remains limited for the time being.
