ThreeG internet is set to get its first roll-out to all of the UK this year with the rollout set to start on the first week of December.
It comes as the Government launches its ‘3G in the home’ programme which aims to roll out broadband to a large number of households by the end of 2020.
The new rollout will be overseen by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), with a focus on the new 4G internet rollout in England, Scotland and Wales.
A spokesperson for the department said: “It is clear that many of our customers, particularly those in London and the South East, are struggling to access the internet, and are looking for innovative ways to benefit from the new technology.”
In 2018, we launched the 3G in homes programme, a programme that aims to give UK homes the best of the internet in a smart and connected way, while also giving them the flexibility to make the most of the new services available.
“The Government’s new broadband programme, dubbed ‘3g in the house’, will bring new high-speed broadband to homes in England and Scotland, providing them with the best possible experience.”
“We have already started to roll-outs in London, Wales and Northern Ireland and we are looking to roll those out across the whole of the country by the middle of December.”
The new ‘3gp in the homes’ scheme will see the use of 4G mobile internet services rolled out by 2021, and broadband will also be available to households in the UK, as well as across the rest of the European Union.
It will also help bring the UK broadband system up to the standards of the rest the EU.””
The 3gp in home programme will make the transition to 4G faster and easier, enabling more people to get connected, to work, travel and socialise.”
It will also help bring the UK broadband system up to the standards of the rest the EU.
