Vodafone Spain connects Barcelona hotel to 5G network

Tuesday 27 October 2020 | 14:45 CET | News
Vodafone Spain announced that Barcelona's Crowne Plaza is the first hotel in Spain with access to a commercial 5G service following a network deployment carried out by the operator. The hotel took advantage of an enforced closure due to Covid-19 restrictions to refurbish its lobby and restaurant areas while setting up a 5G network in the main rooms and common areas. As a result, guests with 5G-enabled devices will be able to enjoy download speeds of 1Gbps, allowing them to better access augmented reality, virtual reality, video mapping and other services.
