BT announced that it will launch 5G service in autumn and will first offer 5G as part of a converged mobile and broadband package to both BT Plus residential and business customers.

BT Plus is the UK’s first converged fibre and mobile plan and comes with BT’s Keep Connected Promise. If a BT Plus customer reports a fault with their home broadband, BT will switch on free, unlimited data on their BT mobiles within an hour and will also send a free 4G Wi-Fi Mini Hub to arrive the next day, with unlimited data to keep customers connected at home while their broadband is repaired.

5G from BT Mobile will use the EE 5G network, which launched in May in six cities. 5G will be rolled out to the busiest parts of a further ten cities across the UK by the end of 2019 – giving BT Mobile customers the most reliable mobile experience, even in the busiest areas.

From autumn 5G will be available for BT and BT business customers and will provide a more reliable experience and higher speeds in high demand, crowded areas at peak times.

Launching 5G for BT customers will give them the opportunity to experience the fastest mobile speeds in the busiest areas of the UK, and our BT Plus customers will have the first opportunity to sign up for 5G.
