According to a report on MyDrivers, Huawei 5G equipment is available in 15 cities in Spain, and Huawei 5G has further expanded its business scope in Europe. It is reported that the operator using Huawei’s 5G equipment is Vodafone. Vodafone CEO, Nick Read, has publicly made speeches against the “Huawei ban” that some European countries are trying to implement. He is of the opinion that the exclusion of Huawei in the 5G era will lead to higher costs and slower network deployment.
According to reports, the Spanish cities that will operate commercial 5G services include Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia. This will make Vodafone the first 5G network operator in the Spanish market. In addition, this places Spain as the third country after Switzerland and the United Kingdom to commercialize 5G in Europe. On May 14, Vodafone said that it will provide 5G services to users in seven cities in the UK. These cities include London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Glasgow, Cardiff and Bristol from July 3 this year. Vodafone may still use Huawei’s 5G hardware equipment in London.
Vodafone also collaborates with Huawei in Qatar
Recall that Vodafone 5G is already available in the Middle East. Some months ago, the carrier launched a new 5D-powered “Vodafone GigaHome” home networking solution driven by 5G in Qatar. This continues to play a leading role in promoting digital innovation in the Middle East. The basic package provides 5Mbps network connection service at 100Mbps, supports 4-6 terminal devices to connect at the same time and it costs 360 Qatari Rial ($99) per month. The standard package offers a 5Mbps connection service at 500Mbps, and the price is 600 Qatari Rial ($165) per month. The VIP package provides full-rate 5G connection service, supporting more than 10 terminal devices to connect at the same time and it costs 1500 Qatari Rial ($412) per month.
