Thursday 23 April 2020 | 10:51 CET | News
Vodafone Germany said it is starting to expand its 5G network based on the new 700 megahertz frequencies, which enable reception in a wide area. This means that the company can start to cover rural areas, too, where network reception does not perform well. The company will activate more than 8,000 antennas at 2,800 locations for 5G using 700 MHz frequencies during this fiscal year.
