O2’s 5G network rollout

December 7th, 2020

O2’s 5G network rolled out to customers in over 100 UK towns and cities

O2 has marked the expansion of its network to customers in over 100 UK towns and cities, with rollout continuing ahead of schedule and with several new locations over the last few months including Milton Keynes, Ipswich, Chelmsford.

A year on from its 5G launch, O2 has continued to roll out the technology at pace with partners Nokia and Ericsson allowing customers take advantage of the high speed network in 108 UK towns and cities.

O2 currently offers 28 5G-enabled devices, including the brand-new Apple iPhone 12 range.

O2’s 5G network has no premium, and its industry-leading Custom Plans allow existing customers on a Refresh tariff to move onto 5G at any time they choose. O2’s ‘Limitless’ tariff, offers consumers unlimited data browsing, as well as its existing custom plans.

Derek McManus, Chief Operating Officer at O2 said:

“When we launched 5G last October, we said it was the first step on a journey. One year on and we have made some incredible progress, not just in terms of our roll-out but in bringing about new capabilities that will make real changes to people’s everyday lives.

“No one could have predicted the way this year has turned out, and that almost overnight, customers would turn to their networks more than ever before to keep them connected to loved ones, colleagues and suppliers. Connectivity has never been more important, and we want our network to continue to raise the bar.

“We firmly believe 5G has a role in helping to rebuild Britain, unlocking huge possibilities for our economy and society. We’re excited to keep pushing ahead with our rollout along with our partners Ericson and Nokia, to keep supporting our customers, businesses and society.”

Investing in technologies for the future

O2 has continued to invest in new technologies to support its growing network. Approximately 10,000 LTE-M sites are now live across the country, allowing customers and businesses to make the most of next-generation IoT technologies in their day to day lives. The new network will cover 57% of premises and 58% of the population and will allow billions of devices to be connected to the internet to collect and share data.

Meeting the demand for the network

The need for 5G has never been so great, with demand for network capacity and reliability increasing throughout lockdown.

Since the beginning of nationwide restrictions in March, O2 has doubled the capacity of its voice network to meet unprecedented demand, with voice traffic increasing by 57% the day the UK went into lockdown. The company has also boosted 4G services in over 91,000 postcodes as demand for connectivity continues to increase, with data consumption across a number of cities jumping up to 50% compared to the same time last year. Over 9,500 visits from O2 field engineers have kept local sites across the country online and over 12,000 sites have been boosted with additional capacity as  O2 works tirelessly to keep the UK connected.

As well as ensuring people are able to stay in touch with family and friends wherever they are, from villages to town centres, 4G and 5G connectivity preserved £205 billion of business for the UK during the period of March to September by enabling many of the UK’s workers to work flexibly and remain productive at home. This is according to research from O2 in partnership with Development Economics.

As the UK’s No 1 mobile network, representing millions of people across the UK, O2 remains committed to its role in rebuilding Britain, and will maintain its investment of around £2million a day in its 4G network whilst pushing ahead with its ongoing rollout of superfast 5G connectivity.

  • Energy: Simon introduced himself to us when he took over our account and has been friendly and helpful from the very first conversation. We have a couple of properties on the same street, some of which we had forgotten to inform ADSI of and we had got confused as to what was currently in contract/where we were paying high tariff rates.  Simon got this organised with minimal input from us which helped massively and also managed to save us money at the same time.

    I feel confident that our account is in safe hands which gives us one less thing to think about in the running of our business, I know Simon will be in touch as and when I need to know something. I would not hesitate to recommend ADSI Energy and have no intention of going elsewhere as I know they will do everything they can to get us the best deal possible.”

    Calls are always answered promptly by a person, not an ‘option machine’.  Each time we have added a new connection the equipment has arrived on time.  Brad Foote has been our dedicated account manager and all it has taken is a quick phone call to action our requirements.

    Ongoing, our account manager keeps a watchful eye on our account and quickly highlights any unusual activity allowing us to address or amend our tariff accordingly. The technical support ADSI provides is also extremely helpful and timesaving.  I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this company.”
