Vodafone, a multinational telecommunications operator that has launched 5G commercial networks in Spain, the UK, and other European countries, will deploy the first batch of 5G base stations in Hungary this month. According to the report, Vodafone will deploy the first 5G base stations in Hungary on October 17.
Since Vodafone has acquired the relevant 5G spectrum resources in Hungary in 2016, it is not different from competitors. After deploying 5G base stations, 5G commercial services will arrive as soon as possible. As of now, Vodafone’s 5G commercial services are available in several European countries. On June 15th, Vodafone launched 5G commercial services in 15 cities including Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia in Spain. Huawei is its major equipment supplier while Ericsson also supplies some of its equipment.
In addition, on July 3, the company launched its 5G commercial network in the UK. Its services cover seven cities including London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester and Liverpool. There are plans to expand to Bournemouth at the end of the year. In addition, 12 more cities including Portsmouth are part of the schedule. On August 14, Vodafone launched a 5G commercial network in Ireland. This network covers five cities including Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford.
