Which? response to Three launch of 5G

Kate Bevan, Which? Computing editor, said:

“While 5G will offer huge benefits to customers including increased internet speeds, faster downloads and being better connected on the move, it is important to remember that only two thirds of the UK are able to get access to 4G with a choice of all major operators.

“The Department for Culture, Media and Sport needs to clearly outline how it will achieve its 2022 target for 95 per cent of the country to have 4G coverage and Ofcom must use its powers effectively to extend coverage.”

Notes to editors:

Only 67% of the UK can access 4G with a choice of all major operators: https://www.ofcom.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0021/146613/connected-nations-update-spring-2019.pdf
