  • Vodafone 5G to go live in the UK in July

It has been a long wait for 5G, but if you're a Vodafone customer in the United Kingdom then the wait is very almost over, as the network has announced that it will be launching its 5G service on July 3 in seven cities.

Vodafone is the first to put a date on its 5G roll-out - a service which it says will cost of both business and consumers the same as using a 4G network. 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.

For a start, the operator says its 5G network will be available in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London, while access will be expanded to include 12 other cities later this year.

On the topic of pricing, Vodafone has made a decision to price its 5G service the same as its existing 4G packages.

5G promises smartphone users data speeds up to ten times faster than 4G and supports many more devices connecting to mobile networks, which could be a big boost to emerging technologies like the Internet of Things.

"The new price plans will be unveiled next week to coincide with the availability of the first handset".

The above products can initially be used with 4G services, and be ready for 5G once launched in your area. Realistically it could be years before operators make 5G available across the entire country, however, and some places are still waiting for 4G.

To accompany its switch-on, Vodafone will soon start offering four 5G-compatible smartphones; Huawei Mate 20 X 5G, Huawei's foldable Mate X, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G. Furthermore, it will also deliver 5G roaming in the U.K., Germany, Italy, and Spain during summer.

"And we were the first United Kingdom company to test 5G over our all-fibre core fixed and mobile network".

"5G is coming." We've heard it repeated by telecom giants and smartphone OEMs for years now. One of those events should yield a go-live date for EE's 5G network, too.
