Vodafone Spain 5G

Vodafone Spain partnered with Huawei to perform ‘the first 5G call in the world’ in February 2018. The call between Castelldefels in Barcelona and Madrid adhered to the standard commercial specifications approved by industry standards body 3GPP in December 2017, and utilised spectrum in the 3.7GHz band. The test also demonstrated a ‘dual 4G-to-5G connection’, which the companies say will be an important facet of 5G network technology, assisting with the control and management of data traffic.

The company announced the commercial launch of its 5G network in June 2019. The network uses Vodafone's 90 MHz of 3.5 GHz spectrum, implementing a n78 (3500 MHz) capable of reaching data rates of 1 Gbps at launch and 2.2 Gbps by years end.
