Vodafone launches first 5G network in Spain with Huawei core equipment


Vodafone has rolled out the first commercial 5G mobile services in Spain, with Huawei as the core equipment supplier for the project.

The 5G mobile network covers 15 major Spanish cities – Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga, Seville, Zaragoza, San Sebastian, Bilbao, Vitoria, La Coruna, Vigo, Gijon, Pamplona, Santander, and Logrono.

Around half of the residents in these cities will be able to enjoy the cutting-edge high-speed network service, which will be expanded in the future.

With 5G mobile phones, customers in Spain will experience download speeds of up to 1Gbps at launch and up to 2Gbps by the end of the year.

The 5G data packages and smartphones are now available from Vodafone Espana online and will be available at its outlets on Monday.

According to Huawei, the company has long-term partnerships with major mobile carriers in Spain and around Europe.

“We will continue to provide service to Spanish operators in their 5G projects. We will also improve our service so as to inspire and invite more small and mid-sized Spanish enterprises to make contributions to 5G applications,” said Jin Yong, chief executive officer of Huawei Spain
