O2 UK, an telecom service provider in the United Kingdom, started its 5G network service this Saturday. It becomes third to provide this new generation service after Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone. In the beginning, the 5G network is covering a total of 150 locations in the five largest German cities.
The city list includes Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, and Cologne. Though, the network is ready to go, will be available to customers from 6th October.
The transmission frequency of O2 is 3.6GHz that allows up to 1Gbit/second of speed theoretically. Nevertheless only up to 300Mbit/s is currently accessible as O2 still has to exploit the whole potential. In the coming days, the service provider needs to hike up its offerings as the internet speed is increasing. To be clear, only half an hour is enough to use up 60GB of 5G data.
Among the 5G tariffs, O2 Free L or O2 Free Unlimited Smart costs 39.99 euros, and it’s the cheapest one that provides 60GB of data. After full consumption, the speed reduced to 10Mbit/s.
