Vodafone to convert Madrid's Ifema into Spain's first 5G exhibition space

Wednesday 23 October 2019 | 15:03 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has announced plans to install a 5G commercial network at Madrid's Ifema, converting the exhibition space into the first in the country and one of the first in the world with the latest mobile technology. The operator will begin installing the network in Ifema's Hall 14.1 this month to coincide with its first European 5G forum, with the rollout set to continue over the coming months. The system will allow Ifema's 35,000-plus exhibitors and 4 million-plus visitors a year to access the internet at initial speeds of up to 1 Gbps, with latency reduced to less than 5 milliseconds.
