Three UK has switched on of 5G in 86 new areas including rural and coastal locations across the UK like Dartmouth, Milford on Sea, Aberystwyth, Holywood and Irvine.
These join hotspots such as Brighton, Blackpool, Edinburgh, Bangor and more that already benefit from 5G connectivity.
It follows its ongoing £2bn+ investment in network technology which has doubled the number of 5G sites in the last year to 3,200. Since the start of 2022, 5G has been rolled out to 86 new areas.
North Devon, Torbay and Great Yarmouth are just some of the areas that see a particular benefit from tourists using their mobiles to plan and enjoy holidays.
Elaine Carey, Three UK Chief Commercial Officer, said:
“Whether it’s a coastal trip to the seaside, a quiet cottage getaway, or a city break, there is an expectation from holidaymakers that they will be able to stay in touch with friends and family, make use of online review and booking platforms, and post about their trip on social media.”
In the lead up to summer – as the staycation season reaches its peak – Three says it will continue to play a role in unlocking opportunities for tourists and the businesses that serve them.
Three UK’s ongoing network investment will help level-up UK connectivity and support the booming staycation sector.
Elaine Carey continued:
“We are committed to playing our part to ensure we continue to provide excellent coverage for all. That’s why we’re investing £2m every day in the network to rollout the UK’s fastest 5G network which now covers more than 56% of the UK’s population.”
