Vodafone is the first UK phone network to disclose the release date of the high-speed 5G network. The carrier said it will become available on 3 July 2019 in 7 cities.
The cities are Glasgow, London, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff, and Bristol.
That’s not all, as Vodafone announced that the 5G doesn’t come with any extra cost, being as pricey as the 4G. A wireless router that turns your 5G signal into Wi-Fi is also on the line, so users will be able to connect wireless devices from their home or offices to 5G network.
Due to its impressive speed, users will be able to download 4K movies in a matter of minutes, and losing signal in crowded locations will no longer be an issue.
“We can today announce the largest launch of 5G in the UK and be the first to announce 5G roaming. It means that UK businesses can lead the world in adopting 5G to boost productivity and attract investment. 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.” said Vodafone UK CEO, Nick Jeffery.
This summer, Italy, Germany and Spain will also get the coveted 5G connection.
Once the service becomes available, Vodafone will offer these 5G phones: Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Huawei Mate X and Huawei Mate X 20.
