O2 invests in largest share of next-generation 5G network

Posted on 16th April 2018 at 13:30

We’re proud to be part of the O2 Direct Partner Network, and we’re delighted to share some news with regards to an exciting new development from the mobile network.

O2 recently purchased the largest share of the new fifth-generation mobile network commonly known as 5G. Investing more than £500 million into the 5G network gives O2 40Mhz of immediately usable 4G (2.3GHz) spectrum, as well as 40Mhz of 3.4GHz spectrum which will be used in the launch of 5G.

The 5G network offers faster mobile network speeds including the ability to better support new technologies such as tele-health, connected transport, and smart cities.

By securing the spectrum, O2 can provide a significant boost for customers, creating greater network capacity in order to keep up with customer demands. O2 has already switched on the spectrum in 60 sites across London, where demand is at its greatest.

The rollout will quickly benefit customers, with more than 100 sites across London and other UK cities covered by the end of April, and plans to have 1000 sites live by the end of the year, and a total of 3000 sites live by the end of 2019.

O2 also plans to launch a 5G test bed at The O2 in London, giving early adopters the chance to try out the technology two years before it officially goes live.

With greater network speeds and capacity, we’re excited to be able to soon bring you further innovation and new offerings as the network rolls out exciting new speeds and capabilities which can benefit your business.

Mike Bowers, managing director at Cellular Solutions said: “As part of the O2 Direct Partner Network, it’s great to see that O2 remains at the forefront of investing in the cutting edge 5G network.

“We’re excited to see how the new technology can help businesses work more efficiently and effectively.”
