Vodafone Has Doubled the Reach of Its 5G Network With Coverage in More Towns and Cities

By Shabana Arif on at

Vodafone launched its 5G network just a couple of weeks ago in seven cities across the UK, and has already added eight additional locations.

The network went live in Birmingham, Bristol, London, Manchester, Liverpool, Cardiff, and Glasgow on July 3, and now customers based in Birkenhead, Bolton, Gatwick, Lancaster, Newbury, Plymouth, Stoke-on-Trent and Wolverhampton can also access 5G.

Vodafone originally listed 12 cities that would follow the initial seven later this year, including Birkenhead, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Newbury, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Reading, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington and Wolverhampton.

Given that some of those areas have now gone live with 5G, that leaves Blackpool, Bournemouth, Guildford, Portsmouth, Reading, Southampton, and Warrington to be added to the list over the course of the next few months, although Vodafone seems to be getting its hustle on, so it may be even sooner.

Vodafone has announced a number of unlimited 5G data plans to entice customers over to the speedier network ,and just this week it launched a 5G wireless, mobile router that can be used anywhere with 5G that can connect to up to 64 devices.

It's clearly pulling out all the stops to rival EE, who was the first network in the UK to get 5G.  You can check out the available deals right here. [Pocket-Lint]
