Three switches on 5G home broadband

Emmett Howard | 20 August, 2019, 04:40

UK NETWORK EE has looked to dampen Three's 5G launch by seeking to ban an advert in which the operator claims to offer the only "real" next-generation service.

Not only that, but Three will offer its 5G mobile service at not extra cost, and is promising speeds up to twice as fast as rivals.

That's competitive with fibre broadband, and so is the price, with Three offering it on 12-month contracts for £35 per month with no upfront cost.

Three chief executive Dave Dyson believes its launch will "revolutionise the home broadband experience" as a simple "plug-and-play" service that swaps traditional landline connections for the 5G masts used to connect smartphones. O2 last week moaned to Ofcom about its plans to defragment 5G spectrum in the 3.4-3.8GHz band, which it claims "is now the most important range of frequencies for the launch and development of 5G mobile services" and puts Three at an unfair advantage. This means you'll be able to pick up a 5G router from a Three store and use it in your home to power all your devices.

Pat Lynch, president of the Police Benovolent Association, last month called Maldonado's recommendation "pure insanity". O'Neill said it was clear that Pantaleo "can no longer effectively serve as a New York City police officer ".

And you might well want to, because there are some big advantages to 5G home broadband, including the fact that it's plug and play with no engineer visits, so it's quick and easy to set up and you can easily take it with you when you move house.

3 United Kingdom believes it can shake up the home broadband market by encouraging customers to customers to cancel their landline and access fibre-like, ultrafast speeds using the mobile broadband service.

O2 recently revealed that it will roll out its 5G network from October. The 100MHz of contiguous spectrum is the optimal package when it comes to rolling out 5G technology.

While Three customers already use 3.5 times the amount of mobile data compared to the industry average of 2.9 GB this is still a long way behind the average for fixed line broadband usage of 240 GB (Ofcom Connected Nations 2018 figures) so it will be interesting to see how the new 5G service handles this.
