Vodafone activates 5G services in Tauranga

24 Mar 2021

Vodafone New Zealand has announced 5G mobile and broadband services are now available in parts of Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty region on North Island. Thaigan Govender, Head of Vodafone NZ’s Mobile Access Network, explained Tauranga had been prioritised for 5G expansion as it is growing as a business hub, adding: ‘It takes time to roll out any mobile technology nationwide, but we’re working as fast as we can to ensure our customers have access to remarkable technology. While the 5G footprint in Tauranga is relatively small at launch, it’ll quickly expand over the coming year as new cell site upgrades and builds are completed in the Bay.’ Vodafone’s 5G services are already available in parts of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, with customers using 5G-enabled smartphones able to automatically access the network at no extra charge.
