It’s a big day for Vodafone 5G news, as the company has made a number of announcements, headlined by the fact that it will launch 5G in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London on July 3rd, for both consumers and businesses.
It’s the first UK network to give a date for when it will switch on 5G services – though that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be the first network to launch 5G, as we’re also expecting 5G from EE imminently.
What Vodafone will probably be the first for though is offering 5G roaming, as the company has also said that in a worldwide first it will let customers roam using 5G in Italy, Germany and Spain from this summer.
Reassuringly, Vodafone has also said that 5G services will be priced the same as 4G, so you won’t have to pay any extra – though early 5G phones are likely to be among the priciest around. Speaking of which, you’ll be able to buy a 5G handset from Vodafone from next week at the time of writing.
