U.K. carrier EE, part of telecom group BT, has doubled its 5G footprint in the recent fiscal year, with its next-generation offering currently available in 160 towns and cities across the country, BT said in its earnings statement.

BT also said that EE’s “5G-ready customer base” reached 3.2 million at the end of fiscal Q4, ending March 31, up compared with 53,000 at the same point in 2020.

“5G-ready connections stand at more than 3.2 million, and EE’s brand strength has attracted more than 1.6 million active users across our retail businesses.
