Airports are getting the futureproof high-capacity upgrade, so they can handle the demand from big crowds for mobile data.
Holidaymakers, business travellers and businesses at five of the UK’s largest airports are starting to enjoy faster and more reliable mobile data, thanks to the arrival of Vodafone 5G.
Installed by Exchange Communications, the technology is now live across George Best Airport in Belfast and Newcastle International Airport. Meanwhile, dedicated 5G systems are also being installed in Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow airports.
With its much higher speeds, 5G is perfect for travellers wanting to download the latest movies and box sets. Its lower latency, meaning the time it takes it connect, makes accessing work documents and remote servers while waiting for a flight much quicker. Meanwhile, 5G’s ability to offer far greater capacity means that many more people can enjoy a reliable signal, no matter how busy and crowded the terminals get.
