Live life unlimited on our next generation network

Keeping you connected is what we're here for

We are constantly investing in our network right across the UK, all year round – to make sure you're connected to the people and things you love, wherever you are. And we've got a history of firsts – we made the UK’s first mobile call, sent the first text message, and supported the nation’s first holographic 5G call.

We do it for you – so you can live your life connected – now and tomorrow.

First mobile call

Michael Harrison calls his dad – our first ever chairperson Sir Ernest Harrison – at 12:01am on 1 January 1985. This makes the history books as the UK’s first ever mobile phone call.

First text message

One of our test engineers, Neil Papworth, sends his colleague the UK’s first text message on Christmas Eve – it said, ‘Merry Christmas.’

First 3G call

The UK’s first 3G voice call is made in the Thames Valley using our network of 30 radio base stations.
