Vodafone Ireland notches first 5G call

26 Nov 2018

Vodafone Ireland CEO Anne O’Leary has made a holographic video call to the group’s innovation centre in Germany using 5G technology. The call was carried over the cellco’s first live 5G cell site, which has been installed in Dublin’s docklands area. According to TechCentral, the 5G network consists of fully standardised Ericsson 5G equipment and utilises the cellco’s 3.6GHz spectrum. Vodafone said it will seek to continue to expand coverage in the area over the coming months.
