Vodafone Spain activates 5G network in Badajoz

Tuesday 11 February 2020 | 15:22 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has activated commercial 5G services in Badajoz, the capital of the Extremadura region and the 16th Spanish city to receive the technology since June 2019. All local residents with 5G-compatible devices can now download data at speeds of up to 1Gbps, some 10 times the current 4G maximum, said the operator. The network's coverage is currently limited to around 40 percent of the city, including the old town and the areas of Pardaleras, Valdepasillas and Antonio Dominguez, with San Roque, Santa Marina and Ciudad Jardin to be added next month.
