In separate announcements, British carrier Vodafone today that it’s almost ready to begin offering commercial 5G services across both the United Kingdom and Spain. The U.K. will begin a seven-city rollout across London, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, and Glasgow on July 3, while Spain will have its own in summer across over 80 base stations in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Bilbao, Malaga, Valencia and Zaragoza.
Vodafone’s U.K. launch plan is slightly different from what was originally expected this year. Last September, to announce an October commencement of 5G tests across seven cities, with plans to launch live networks in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cornwall, and the Lake District in 2019, then expand to 1,000 sites by 2020. Now the company says that it will launch its first seven sites
