Vodafone starts free 5G trial over Wi-Fi at Wellington Airport

Tuesday 3 December 2019 | 06:39 CET | News
Vodafone New Zealand has teamed up with Wellington Airport to enable travellers to try 5G speeds free of charge. Travellers passing through Wellington Airport can now test 5G speeds by connecting to a Nokia FastMile 5G Gateway device.

The free trial runs until 9 December, and allow up to five users to connect to the 5G-wireless device for 5 minutes at a time. To access the 5G service, users need a Wi-Fi enabled device and be near the 5G stand located in the centre of the main terminal opposite gate 18. They can connect to ‘Free 5G WLG’ with the password ‘Vodafone5G’.

Vodafone New Zealand plans to soon launch its 5G service in parts of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
