London, 24th September 2019 – Cerillion (AIM: CER), an innovator in digital monetisation and customer management solutions, today announced that Three’s launch of high speed 5G Broadband in London is being powered by the Cerillion Enterprise BSS/OSS suite. Initially available in London, the 5G service is set to revolutionise people’s homes with customers able to order a 5G ‘plug and play’ hub with optional same day delivery, to immediately transform their connected home experience.
Cerillion and Three have worked in close partnership to prepare for the 5G launch, with Cerillion’s Convergent Charging System (CCS) and Self Service modules playing a central role in the 5G experience. CCS is a 5G-ready online charging system that has been designed from the outset to support the latest 3GPP-based services. Self Service is a versatile online portal for delivering a digital-first customer experience, streamlining sales orders and enabling 24x7 account management from any device or browser.
“5G home broadband is a game-changer for connectivity in the home,” commented Rosalind Singleton, Managing Director, UK Broadband. “Cerillion’s pre-integrated Enterprise BSS/OSS suite provides us with seamless integration across all back office systems and processes, meaning we can focus on our 5G rollout, with a robust and reliable platform to support our business.”
“Three’s plug and play approach to providing 5G broadband is a big step forward for consumers, providing instant access to superfast streaming and connection in the home,” commented Louis Hall, CEO, Cerillion plc. “Building on the successful relationship we established during the launch of 4G, we are delighted to be continuing our close partnership with Three as they pioneer 5G fixed wireless access here in the UK.”

Notes to Editors
About UK Broadband
In 2014, UK Broadband launched Relish Broadband, a transformational broadband offering for both businesses and consumers in the capital, which provides plug and play broadband with no need for a landline and in 2016 they launched the first and only same day broadband delivery service in central London.
In 2017 UK Broadband was acquired by Three UK and in 2019 Relish Broadband was changed to Three Broadband.
Three launched in 2003 as the UK’s first 3G only network, laying its foundations as the network that was born to be different. Today Three is a connectivity company that connects people to people, people to things and things to things and has almost 12 million active customers on our network.
An average Three customer uses 3.5 times more mobile data than the industry average and its network today covers 99% of the UK population. It has the highest Net Promoter Score (NPS) of any of the mobile network operators at +17, alongside +24 for its Employee NPS.
Three also has the UK’s leading 5G spectrum holdings with more than the rest of the industry combined. Three is the only operator able to meet the International Telecoms Union (ITU) 2020 standard for full 5G services. It will launch its first home broadband service this August with a commitment to deliver 5G to 25 towns and cities by the end of the year.
Three was voted the Best Network for Data at the Mobile Choice Consumer Awards, as well as Best Network for Roaming by uSwitch, and the Best High Street Retailer at the Mobile Industry Awards.
Three UK is part of the CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd group of companies which has mobile operations in 11 countries. We employ more than 4,800 people across our offices in Maidenhead, Glasgow and Reading and our 326 retail stores.
