Three is all set to launch the UK's "fastest" 5G network in August.
The mobile company is set to compete with Vodafone and EE who have already entered the UK 5G market. Three 5G is coming to 25 UK towns and cities later this year.
It will then turn out mobile and home broadband services in 25 towns and cities across the UK by the end of 2019.
If you want to make use of Three 5G you will need to be in one of these 25 launching areas and have a compatible 5G smartphone or home broadband device.
"It’s understandable that consumers and businesses want more and more data. We have the UK’s outstanding network for data and we have led the market on customer usage on both 3G and 4G technologies.We have worked hard over a long period of time to be able to provide the best end to end 5G experience. 5G will prove to be a game changer for Three, and of course I am excited that we will be the only operator in the UK who can offer true 5G,” said CEO Dave Dyson of Three.

- 5G is the upcoming generation of mobile phone networks
- As compared to 4G internet will be more faster in 5G.
- Phone networks across the UK are in a rapid race to introduce 5G phone speeds.
Three says it's the only network provider which is top in the race, that can give a 'true' 5G experience because it is apparently the only company that will give UK customers 100MHz of the 5G spectrum, which is how the global standards body on 5G technology describes 5G.

The cities and towns that the Three 5G mobile networks will be initially rolled out in are: London, Birmingham, Bolton, Bradford, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Coventry, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Nottingham, Reading, Rotherham, Sheffield, Slough, Sunderland,Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes,and Wolverhampton.
Company has said that from the launch date "peak mobile speeds will be at least 2x faster than other mobile network operators and will provide a more reliable connection and experience for customers."
UK consumers can look forward to using 13 times more mobile data in 2025 than today and 5G is intended to cope with this extra demand.
