More towns and cities have their 5G network switched on.

EE have rolled out coverage to 14 areas around the UK.

EE has announced the expansion of its 5G network to 14 new towns and cities, including Liverpool, Glasgow and Huddersfield for the first time.

The mobile operator said independent tests by network performance firm RootMetrics had also found its network now covered 60% of London.

As part of the new expansion, EE said it had introduced 5G in Castlereagh, Guildford, Hamilton, Harlow, Hoddesdon, Kimberley, Lisburn, Maidstone, Sydenham, Watford and Wolverhampton.

5G is the next generation of mobile data network, offering speeds several times that of current-generation 4G.

EE - which is owned by BT - began its 5G network rollout in May, initially launching coverage in London, Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester.

Fellow operators Vodafone, O2 and Three have since begun their own introductions of 5G coverage.
