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

Vodafone 5G to go live in the UK in July

Vodafone 5G to go live in the UK in July

Today, Vodafone UK becomes the first major carrier to announce an official launch date for its 5G service, scheduled for July 3.

This makes it the first United Kingdom operator to announce an official switch-on date.

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

The initial 3 July switch-on will take place in these 7 cities: Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London.

Vodafone adds that Birkenhead, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Newbury, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington and Wolverhampton will follow later this year.

An exclusive 5G home router called the 5G Gigacube, which will launch this summer.

Handsets with 5G modems will be essential to get the most out of the new network capabilities, of course.

With Vodafone's announcement in the news and summer almost here I don't think it will be long before we hear more concrete from EE, O2 and Three about their respective 5G rollout plans.

If you're not in one of the cities where Vodafone is initially launching 5G, you won't necessarily be left out for long, as later in 2019 the network also plans to bring 5G to Birkenhead, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Newbury, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington and Wolverhampton, though it will probably be a long time before the entire United Kingdom has coverage. We upgraded our masts to be able to take 5G without disruption.

"This is important. It means we can today announce the largest launch of 5G in the United Kingdom and be the first to announce 5G roaming".

"This is important. It means we can today announce the largest launch of 5G in the United Kingdom and be the first to announce 5G roaming". It means that United Kingdom businesses can lead the world in adopting 5G to boost productivity and attract investment. Vodafone is also offering 5G roaming in the UK, Italy, France and Spain over the summer.

"Results highlight the ongoing challenges facing the company in its quest to turnaround its fortunes".

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