Vodafone 5G coverage reaches 10m Germans ahead of schedule

13 Nov 2020

Vodafone Germany has announced that its 5G network now covers ten million people thanks to the rollout of around 3,000 antennas at more than 1,000 locations across the country. Around 300 towns, cities and municipalities have recently gained access to Vodafone’s 5G services ahead of the year-end target date, including Saarbrucken, Meppen and Mosbach, while coverage has also been improved in locations such as Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf and Leipzig. By the end of the year, coverage is set to increase to 15 million Germans, before reaching 30 million by the end of 2021 – ten million more than previously planned.

Vodafone is using the 1800MHz band to provide 5G in densely populated cities, while the 700MHz range is already being deployed in rural areas and the 3500MHz band is being rolled out in high traffic areas such as stadiums and train stations.
