Monday 10 June 2019 | 14:39 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has confirmed that it will be launching the country's first commercial 5G network in 15 cities on 15 June. The number of launch cities is more than double the 7 announced by the company's CEO Antonio Coimbra last month, bringing initial speeds of up to 1 Gbps to customers in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Malaga, Zaragoza, Bilbao, Vitoria, San Sebastian, La Coruna, Vigo, Gijon, Pamplona, Logrono and Santander. Speeds will rise to 2 Gbps by the end of the year, some 10 times the current 4G maximum, with latency reduced to less than 5 milliseconds in ideal conditions.
