Mobile operator EE (BT) has started to extend their new 5G ultrafast mobile broadband network to cover an additional 9 towns and cities across the United Kingdom, including locations such as Southend-on-Sea, Stirling and Weybridge.

The development means that EE’s 5G network is now live across busy parts of 80 UK locations, although it will take a long time to reach the same level of coverage in each areas as has already been achieved by existing 4G networks. The operator’s website actually lists “Stirling” under towns, although these days it’s usually described as a city (we’ve noted this to EE).
