Business 5G on BT
We’re bringing faster 5G to the busiest cities around the UK. Discover what 5G for business can do for you.
What is 5G?
5G is the next generation of mobile network technology. For business, 5G gives you the power to work faster – in even the busiest places.
Download large files in seconds, not minutes. Stream without buffering or delays. Rely on a rapid connection in stations and stadiums. So much more is possible with 5G.
4G took mobile technology to new places. As the next layer in our network, BT 5G gives you a faster, smoother and more reliable mobile experience. In the busiest cities, at the busiest times.
Where is 5G?
Our network partner EE made the 5G breakthrough, and was the first to switch on 5G in the UK’s capital cities in May 2019.
You can now get 5G on BT Business in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Belfast, Manchester and Birmingham.
And with plans to roll out EE’s 5G network to Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester, Coventry and Bristol in 2019, 5G for business is coming to a city near you. Fast.
How does 5G work?
Wireless communications – like calling, texting and using the internet on your mobile – use radio frequencies. 5G mainly uses higher frequencies than 4G, which are faster and can carry more information.
The 5G for business frequencies we use can also support more devices at the same time, meaning more people can get connected without speeds slowing.
And because the 5G network can be ‘sliced’, operators like BT Business can dedicate slices to particular uses. One BT 5G slice for connecting driverless cars, for example, and another to make sure our 5G business customers can get online faster than ever.

Better connection in busy places
At peak times, more and more people put demand on a network, which can cause connections to slow down. But with 5G, you can count on superfast speeds even at London Waterloo during rush hour. Making it easier to do business in the busiest places.
Quicker speeds, superior quality
With 5G you can enjoy higher resolution video calls with no break-up. And if you’re able to work faster using 5G, you could finish your day sooner too. Giving you plenty of time to watch the movie you downloaded – in seconds on 5G rather than minutes on 4G.
