As of today, more than 20 million people across Germany have access to the fast Vodafone 5G network – almost a year earlier than planned.

Large 5G activation from Vodafone: Around 800 other locations across Germany are now connected to the high-speed mobile network with over 2200 antennas. These include the major cities in the Ruhr area, Duisburg, Essen and Mülheim an der Ruhr, as well as cities like Göttingen and Glauchau, as the network provider reports today.

In addition, rural communities such as Ohmberg or Wahlheim now have access to the fast network. Overall, the 5G network is now available to more than 20 million local people. According to its own statements, the Düsseldorf telecommunications group will thus achieve its original expansion target almost a year earlier than planned.

Vodafone has so far activated a total of more than 7,000 5G antennas at almost 2,500 locations in its own network throughout Germany. In order to be able to do justice to various application purposes, the telecommunications group is the only network operator in Germany to offer the new mobile communications technology from all three frequency ranges: high-band, mid-band and low-band. These frequencies differ in their physical properties, tailored to their intended use.

Fast network for large areas

With frequencies from the low band, Vodafone is also bringing the new mobile communications standard to the country. This means that particularly large areas of up to eight kilometers can be supplied. According to Vodafone, 5G brings the fast network with up to 200 megabits per second in stable signal strength into the houses, which should be particularly advantageous for home office and home schooling. In addition, frequencies from the mid-band supply urban residential areas with up to 500 megabits per second and an area of ​​around 3 kilometers with the network.

5G in industry

According to Vodafone, industry in particular is benefiting from the new mobile communications technology. In industrial halls and in particularly busy locations such as train stations or Bundesliga stadiums, more than 1,000 5G antennas in the vicinity of around one kilometer should enable speeds of up to 1,000 megabits per second.

The new mobile radio standard opens up new possibilities for the industry. To this end, Vodafone has started numerous projects with partners from the industrial, sports and TV sectors. In cooperation with Sky, the telecommunications group used 5G for the first time for live broadcasting in the Bundesliga. In addition, football fans will in future be able to experience the games in the stadium more closely and receive additional digital information through a real-time app from DFL and Vodafone.
