Vodafone UK launches 5G at Gatwick Airport

Thursday 12 September 2019 | 11:06 CET | News

Vodafone UK has confirmed the launch of 5G at Gatwick Airport. It has deployed a high-capacity, high-speed fibre-optic network to carry 5G throughout the airport. This will provide a strong 5G signal in arrivals and the departure lounges, as well as many restaurants and shops.

The 5G network will also allow support Gatwick Airport's 5-year 'smart airport' investment programme. Projects to benefit from the rapid response time of 5G include an upcoming trial of robotic parking, as well as further automation of various check-in and boarding processes.
