Mayor promises 5G mobile network across London by 2020

Mayor promises 5G mobile network across London by 2020London will be one of the first major cities in the world to be covered by a 5G mobile Internet service, the city's mayor has pledged, among other connectivity claims. Mayor Boris Johnson revealed the city is working with the University of Surrey to develop part of the capital's long-term infrastructure investment plan, which should lead to the 5G mobile network being deployed by 2020.

"London is earning the reputation for being the tech capital of Europe and that is why we need to ensure every Londoner is able to access the very best digital connectivity," said Johnson according to the Telegraph. "Rapidly improving the connectivity of this great city is a key part of the Infrastructure Plan for London."

Mayor Johnson is also promising more accurate details of Internet connectivity options for those looking to buy or rent properties in the city in the future. Potential connection speeds will be offered via a map developed jointly with the telecommunications industry, with the map also able to help dictate to companies regions where connectivity could be improved.

The UK capital has already made some progress on providing Internet access to its citizens. The London Underground currently offers Wi-Fi service at over 120 stations, with the initial installation prompted by the 2012 Olympic Games.
