Vodafone has become the second UK mobile operator to turn on its 5G network. The service, which offers faster speeds and more capacity than 4G, can be used to support new technologies, such as Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, artificial intelligence, connected cities and autonomous vehicles.
The firm also confirmed that 5G would also be deployed to additional cities and towns by the end of the year. The list includes Birkenhead, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Newbury, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington and Wolverhampton.
Business director of Vodafone UK, Anne Sheehan, said: "5G is a game-changer for the economy and UK businesses. We are committed to helping our customers take advantage of this technology by making it widely available in the UK and through roaming. We want to help UK businesses become global leaders and 5G will play an important role in achieving that aim."
Vodafone pricing options are Unlimited Max (£30/month), which gives users unlimited mobile access at maximum speeds, Vodafone Unlimited (£26/month), which offers up to 10Mbps and Vodafone Unlimited Lite (£23/month), which offers speeds of up to 2Mbps.
