EE 5G UK release date and price REVEALED – here's how much extra it will cost you


EE has just announced its radical 5G upgrade will launch next week.

This huge update will bring vastly improved speeds and a much more reliable signal to customers across the UK.

5G is being switched on from May 30 with download times expected to be infinitely faster than current 4G.

Sadly, this latest technology won’t work on your current phone so how much extra is this service going to set you back?

At launch, EE says it will offer SIM-only plans from £32 per month which will include 20GB of data.

If you want a device on contract then prices will start from £54 per month although there’s no word yet on which smartphones will be included in these plans.

Samsung, Oppo and OnePlus have all announced they will be launching phones on EE’s 5G network and expect more news in the coming days.

Along with 5G data access, EE is also offering swappable benefits which will include a Video Data Pass, Roaming Pass, Music Data Pass, Gamers Data Pass and BT Sport App HD HDR.

EE says customers will be able to select up to three of these benefits as part of their 5G bundles.

Speaking about the launch Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division, said: “This is the start of the UK’s 5G journey and great news for our customers that want and need the best connections. We’ve started with 5G in some of the busiest parts of the UK, the widest range of 5G devices in the UK, and plans that give customers the best mobile connection and great benefits.

“We’re adding 5G to the UK’s number one 4G network to increase reliability, increase speeds, and keep our customers connected where they need it most. 5G will create new experiences with augmented reality, make our customers’ lives easier, and help launch entirely new businesses that we haven’t even imagined. We’re upgrading more than 100 sites to 5G every month from today to connect more places to what 5G can enable.

“Our partnerships with Google and Niantic are just the start of our commitment to work with the most innovative and exciting companies in the world to ensure that EE customers are the first to benefit from the exciting new experiences that 5G will bring.”
