How will 5G benefit your business?

Faster business on the move

With 5G, you’ll get office Wi-Fi speeds on the go, so downloading critical documents will take seconds. In fact, 5G is up to 10 times faster than 4G, with average speeds of 150-250Mbps – compared to 23-35 Mbps for 4G. Plus, its improved outdoor coverage will allow you to monitor assets in remote locations using IoT technology such as smart cameras.

Real-time efficiencies

Imagine an engineer looking at a virtual layout of a system and fixing it with remote assistance – all in real time. 5G will make this possible by drastically reducing any delays in connectivity and data sharing. Augmented Reality (AR) will become more widely used by businesses to boost productivity.

Be an innovation leader

The development of 5G will enable some truly exciting possibilities across many industries. With the ability to transform your processes, you’ll be able to work smarter and improve efficiency. The 5G network is just the start of a journey that’s taking us towards innovations like self-driving cars, smarter homes and businesses, and things we haven’t even realised we need yet.

Connectivity, even in crowded places

5G will enable many more devices to connect at once. Attending a big event or travelling for work? Our 5G will mean that no matter the crowd, you can get on with whatever you need to. And in the future it will empower innovations such as smart cities – where all kinds of smart enabled devices provide real-time data that can be analysed to make our lives safer and better.

5G ready phones

* Please note: To use 5G you will need a 5G compatible phone and a Business Premier plan. 5G coverage will initially only be available in the specific locations listed here
** We are working hard with our partners to ensure our customers get the best possible experience on our network and that our devices are all 5G-ready. Some devices may need to be activated after 3rd July – this is to ensure they have the most up-to-date software and that our customers get a seamless 5G experience.

The power and possibilities of 5G

We made the world's first holographic call with 5G

We made the world’s first holographic call with 5G

In the latest in our long history of communication firsts, we made the world’s first holographic phone call using 5G. We beamed England football star Steph Houghton on stage as a hologram to chat with a young fan.

Remote working in harsh conditions

The applications of 5G are endless and wide-ranging – everything from surgery and prison inspections to automated factories. We’ve already used 5G to operate a crane in real time from over 70km away, and pilot a driverless car. 5G’s much faster response times will allow people to do dangerous jobs, or work requiring fine motor skills, from a distance.

Augmented reality in the office

Virtual and augmented reality is already being used in gaming, entertainment and shopping apps. But with 5G, we could start to see it become part of our working day. It will allow you to take collaboration and communication to the next level – responding to customers and communicating with colleagues with virtual interactions that feel real.

5G in action

Enhanced emergency response

A mobile network that offers real-time data exchange between control centres, ambulance teams and specialist doctors could enable emergency services to benefit from remote diagnosis and prepare hospitals for incoming casualties.

Smart connected cities

5G will allow more devices to connect simultaneously in densely populated urban spaces, transforming the way we manage our cities. For example, public transport vehicles and emergency services will be able to relay information in real time, and data from CCTV footage will improve traffic control. 5G technology could even be used to empower autonomous vehicles.

Remote healthcare

High capacity and highly reliable mobile connections could bring a new era of remote healthcare. Specialists could offer remote video consultations, monitoring and procedures – even when their patients are on the other side of the world.
