Vodafone UK Grow to 575000 Broadband Users and Set 5G Launch

Vodafone 5g phone

Xiaomi Mi MIX 3, Samsung S10, Huawei Mate 20X and Mate X are included in Vodafone's 5G smartphone offerings in the UK. Crucially, Vodafone has also announced that "5G [will be] priced the same as 4G".

Along with a better connection, there's more good news as Vodafone says it will price 5G the same as 4G.

We must confess that we expected to hear a date from EE first, although the BT-owned network has invited Pocket-lint to a briefing on 22 May.

Vodafone has confirmed that cities including Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London will be among the first to see the new speeds. Later in the year, Vodafone will add Birkenhead, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Newbury, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington and Wolverhampton to its 5G coverage areas.

Vodafone will turn on its 5G service in the United Kingdom on 3 July with the help of equipment by Chinese telecoms provider Huawei.

McConnell on Trump Jr. subpoena: 'I think this is just a blip'
Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in a separate interview in 2017 he was only "peripherally aware" of the proposal. I should also note that Burr's Committee isn't overstepping normal bounds. "The last thing he needs is Washington , D.C".

An exclusive 5G home router called the 5G Gigacube, which will launch this summer. While operators in the states have since responded, not much has been heard from operators in the United Kingdom and European Union, but that changes now, as one of UK's largest operator Vodafone is all set to make its 5G network go live.

All handsets will be 4G-compatible and will switch to 5G when it is turned on.

Not on Vodafone? You could still get a 5G upgrade soon, as EE, Three and O2 all plan to launch 5G services at some point this year as well, though as with Vodafone they'll initially be limited to a handful of cities. "It means consumers can get the fastest mobile speeds ever, and it means that our public sector will be able to adopt new services to improve healthcare, social services and housing".

Vodafone Group CEO Nick Read cited spectrum auctions in Italy and Germany alongside harder trading conditions in Italy and Germany as some of the reasons behind the cut.

"Huge investment is required to roll out these new ultra-fast networks but it comes at a cost".
