Bringing the benefits of full 5G to everyone isn’t just an issue of technology or logistics – tailoring that tech to new customers and issues of scale are just as important.
Technology – how it works and how it can improve all our lives – is one of the things that I think and enjoy talking about most often. But how to bring that technology to as many people as possible weighs on my mind just as much, yet it’s something that many others barely consider.
But I’m getting ahead of myself. In June 2023, Vodafone announced a UK first – the launch of 5G Ultra, our proposition to bring 5G Standalone and Non-standalone connectivity together for the general public.
This is a significant milestone for digital in the UK as it demonstrates the promise of “full” 5G.
5G Ultra has been years in the making and I am incredibly proud of the complex work our team has done so far. But now we now face an even more challenging task: how to pay for a 5G Standalone alone network which is everywhere and anywhere.
