EE has launched the UK’s first next-generation 5G mobile network, with a concert by rapper Stormzy live-streamed from a boat on the River Thames.
British-Ghanaian rapper, Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr., professionally known as Stormzy, won Best Grime Act at the 2014 and 2015 MOBO Awards and was named as an artist to look out for in the BBC’s influential Sound of 2015 list.
EE launched the 5G mobile network to offer faster downloads, but customers will need a new handset to take advantage.
At first, the service will only be available in limited areas of Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
Rival Vodafone plans to switch on its 5G service in the coming weeks.
