Wednesday 26 February 2020 | 08:14 CET | News
Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) has announced it will switch on its first 5G sites within weeks. VHA Chief Executive Officer Inaki Berroeta says the operator is moving forward following the Federal Court's recent ruling on the VHA-TPG Telecom merger. "We are very excited to be pushing ahead with our plans for 2020 by delivering our first 5G sites within weeks, with the initial rollout to continue throughout the year", Berroeta said. These will be the first of over 650 5G sites in progress. VHA plans to deploy "several thousand sites" over the coming years.
