Speaking about the update, Vodafone UK Chief Executive Officer Nick Jeffery said: “We have started the new year as we mean to go on. We now offer 5G in double the number of places than our nearest rival and we have significantly boosted the capacity of our network. It is ready for the arrival in 2020 of some great new 5G handsets and the next big software release bringing ultra-low latency. Together, these will push 5G to the next level.”

Of course, to access these 5G speeds you’ll need a new smartphone as 4G models aren’t compatible with this latest technology.

With 5G still in its infancy, these latest handsets have been pretty expensive but that could all change over the next 12 months.

Chipmaker Qualcomm is hoping that its new updates will make 5G more accessible for consumers.

The US technology firm recently announced its new Snapdragon 765G processor that could finally mean 5G devices get a little bit cheaper.
