5G will be available for trial in seven cities across the UK. Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, and London were selected to run the tests on the upcoming network.

Those new infrastructures will be running the new 5G at the end of 2018 between October and December.

Earlier this year, Vodafone paid £378 million, to get 50Mhz of the 3.4GHz spectrum.

Nick Jeffery, Vodafone’s chief executive stated, “We want to make 5G and new fibre broadband services available to consumers and business throughout the UK, delivering a Gigabit society for all. We will also be bringing ultra-fast 4G to several hundred sites in hard to reach rural areas this year, building on our position as the network that offers the best voice coverage in the UK.”

Vodafone’s goal is to launch a full 5G service in the UK by 2020, when 5G devices will be available on the market.
