Some of the places that now have 5G in England are Kettering, Retford, Saltford, Scunthorpe, Carlisle, Barrow-in-Furness, and Crewe. The 150 new locations also include Buckhaven, Cowdenbeath, Gorebridge, Saltcoats, Portlethen, Banchory, and Ratho in Scotland; and Milford Haven, Pontypridd, Pencoed, Ebbw Vale, Whitland, Merthyr Tydfil, and Pentyrch in Wales.

In its announcement, EE also shared that it has upgraded its 5G network in some towns and cities that hold Christmas markets. According to the carrier, this upgrade will provide a "welcome boost" to small traders and their customers, who need a fast and reliable network to support contactless payments during the festive shopping period.
