Telefonica Deutschland has announced that it is expanding the range of 5G-capable mobile tariffs for its O2 brand. From July 6, all new and existing customers will be able to use 5G with any of the O2 ‘Free Unlimited’ tariffs or a volume tariff from the ‘O2 Free M’ range. When taking out a new contract for one of these tariffs, 5G will automatically be included for O2 customers, while existing customers can book the free ‘5G access’ package. Customers with 5G compatible smartphones will have access to speeds of up to 300Mbps. Network coverage is currently available in 60 cities across Germany and by the end of the year services will cover 30% of the population, rising to the whole of the country by the end of 2025.
