Three UK brings 4G enhancements

Three UK customers have already started seeing the benefits of a significant upgrade to its 4G network which will deliver improvements of up to 150% for customers.

The improvements come as Three has announced, that its data-hungry customers have helped the company to become the first UK operator to smash through the 10GB monthly data usage barrier per customer. Data usage in July 2019 was a whopping 10.4GB per month versus the UK average of 2.9GB.

The programme will run until 2023 in tandem with 5G rollout which went live in Central London in August. It includes:

  • New spectrum and antennas - 6,000 sites carrying 80% of traffic will be upgraded with new antennas and new spectrum (1400MHz or "L-Band") meaning speed improvements of up to 150% for customers with compatible handsets. Customers without a compatible handset will also see speeds improve by about 50%.
  • Recycling 3G spectrum – 12,500 sites will see speed improvements of up to 40% as some of 3G spectrum will be switched over to 4G.
The upgrades have already started in busiest areas, so customers will start to see the benefits by the end of the year. 3,960 sites have already benefited from a 15% improvement in performance thanks to the deployment of carrier aggregation technology. Customers will know they are using carrier aggregation, when they see a 4G+ icon on their phone.

These network improvements form part of the £2bn investment in Three's infrastructure which is taking place to deliver an all-round excellent customer experience, based on the combined power of a new cloud core, new IT systems and an enhanced network, as Three continues its 5G roll out.
