The phone company's added a number of UK town and cities to its network.

Customers can now start to experience 5G in Birkenhead, Bolton, Gatwick, Lancaster, Newbury, Plymouth, Stoke-onTrent and Wolverhampton.

They join Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and London, which all went live with 5G on 3rd July 2019.

Vodafone UK Chief Executive Officer Nick Jeffery said:

“Vodafone’s global presence means we can provide our consumer and business customers with 5G in more destinations than any other UK provider.

“Combined with our new unlimited data plans, we are offering customers the best roaming experience ever.

“They won’t have to hunt for Wi-Fi or rely on often expensive and slow hotel connections; they can use their 5G smartphones to enjoy faster roaming.”
