Vodafone implements the use of 5G technology

The telecommunications company introduced this service in Germany with the implementation of antennas located in Düsseldorf, Cologne, Dortmund and other cities in the country

The telecommunications company Vodafone put into service a commercial network of 5G telephony in Germany, for which it activated antennas in Düsseldorf, Cologne, Dortmund and other cities in the country.

The Vodafone network that operates with 5G technology is still very limited since the company has some 25,000 stations throughout the country.

According to Vodafone, the stations’ antennas will allow private clients to take advantage of the ultra-fast 5G mobile telephony standards. To use this service, customers must incorporate this modality in pre-existing contracts with the company.

Also, customers need new smartphones that are compatible with 5G. Vodafone offers models of the Huawei and Samsung brands.

The Deutsche Telekom company indicated that it will activate its 5G network “in the coming weeks”, while Telefónica has not yet provided data on the start of this service.

Anyway, the fifth generation of mobile telephony, known as 5G, is not so important for private customers, since most mobile applications still work well with the fastest standard of the moment, called 4G or LTE.

But virtual reality or online games of great complexity of data may need 5G in the future. Not only speed is important, also the volume of data plays a relevant role in sites equipped with 5G.

For example, in Bundesliga games, when the network is saturated in the stadiums, 5G technology can significantly improve service in the future. Vodafone announced a cooperation agreement with the German Football League (DFL) in early July.
