Vodafone aiming for nationwide 5G SA coverage by 2025

16 Mar 2022

Vodafone Germany has announced plans to expand the coverage of its 5G Standalone (5G SA) network to ‘almost everyone’ in the country by 2025. The firm launched its 5G SA network, which it has now dubbed ‘5G+’, in April 2021 and the service is now supported on a total of 16 smartphones and tablets. At present, Vodafone’s 5G SA network comprises 4,000 antennas and covers around ten million people, compared to 45 million for its 5G service, but the firm states that as the expansion process continues, 5G SA will also be activated at each 5G station with a view to achieving almost nationwide coverage by 2025. The network uses frequencies in both the 3.5GHz and 700MHz bands.
