BT Mobile customers will be able access 5G in 20 major towns and cities across the UK from Friday 11 October, the company has confirmed. The service is powered by EE’s 5G network, which launched in the busiest London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester back in May. Since then the expansion has continued through the addition of transport hubs, major public venues, and new cities. Pricing and tariffs have yet to be revealed, but the first customers to benefit from the launch will be those who have one of BT’s converged services that combine superfast broadband and mobile connectivity. BT is replacing its existing ‘BT Plus’ converged tariffs with a service called ‘BT Halo’ which includes unlimited mobile data and calls, access to 5G and fibre connectivity.

UPDATE 1-Shell urges collaboration with other industries to tackle emissions. LONDON, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell's chief executive took aim beyond the energy sector to call on leaders of other industries including aviation, shipping and steel to jointly draw up plans to tackle greenhouse gas emissions. "Climate change is the biggest challenge facing the energy industry, but the energy industry isn't the biggest challenge for the world trying to tackle climate change," van Beurden told the Oil & Money conference. Oil and gas companies have come under huge public and investor pressure in recent years to reduce carbon emissions from their operations and the products they sell. But van Beurden said that to reach the Paris climate goals for "net zero" emissions by the end of the century, governments and industries need to transform demand.

BT seeks to repair customer ties with new services and products. In one of the first moves since taking over in February, Philip Jansen outlined the group's aims to rebuild BT's reputation after clashes with the regulator, government and customers who complained about poor service. Under the plan, BT will create a team of experts to help customers in the home and small businesses, speed up the return of its customer support teams to the UK and Ireland, and bring BT back to the high street by putting its products and staff into its EE mobile store network. Jansen told reporters late on Tuesday there was a risk the cable group Virgin Media, owned by John Malone's Liberty Global , could allow rivals such as Comcast's pay-TV group Sky to access its network to provide superfast services to customers.
