In which cities is Vodafone 5G available
As for the 5G coverage, as already reported in the first days of April 2021 Vodafone has made official that it has reached 20 new cities, which have been added to the first 5 that had been covered since the launch of the fifth generation network of the red operator, for a total of 25 cities.
Currently the cities officially covered in 5G by Vodafone and present on the operator’s website are therefore Milan, Turin, Bologna, Rome, Naples, Genoa, Bergamo, Brescia, La Spezia, Monza, Novara, Verona, Padua, Parma, Rimini, Trento, Trieste, Venice, Florence, Cagliari, Prato, Palermo, Bari, Catania and Reggio Calabria.
Please note that, although no longer reported on the dedicated page of the official website, previously Vodafone declared that it also covered 28 municipalities of the Milanese metropolitan area, specifically some areas of Assago, Bollate, Bresso, Carugate, Cassina de ‘Pecchi, Cinisello Balsamo, Cologno Monzese, Cusano Milanino, Garbagnate Milanese, Lainate, Legnano, Melegnano, Novate Milanese, Opera, Parabiago, Pessano con Bornago, Pioltello, Rho, Rozzano, San Donato Milanese, San Giorgio su Legnano, San Giuliano Milanese, Sedriano, Segrate, Senago, Sesto San Giovanni, Solaro and Trezzano sul Naviglio.
The coverage of the current cities does not automatically imply that the entire municipal territory is reached, so at the moment the coverage it may only affect some specific areas of the municipalities declared covered.
As already told by MondoMobileWeb, Vodafone currently specifies on its website that the 5G network has reached a outdoor coverage rate of 90% of the population in particular a Milan, Turin, Bologna, Rome, Naples, Genoa, Verona, Florence, Palermo and Bari.
Instead, in the rest of the cities currently covered by Vodafone with the latest generation mobile network, the operator claims to have reached one outdoor coverage rate of 70% of the population.
The possible evolution of the coverage
It is emphasized that the cities listed above are those currently listed on the official Vodafone website.
However, given that the operator’s new network is still being implemented throughout Italy, in some areas of some cities, Vodafone’s next-generation network may already be active, even if not yet formalized.
It should also be noted that the Vodafone website reminds us that soon the GigaNetwork 5G will arrive in new cities: from the beginning the operator declared that it had the intention of reaching the 100 cities covered by 2021, so it cannot be ruled out that in the next few months there may be further news.
In this regard in recent days Aldo Bisio, CEO of Vodafone Italia, stated that by the end of 2021 the operator will reach 50 or 60 Italian cities covered in 5G.
Other details and speeds achievable on Vodafone 5G network
As the operator points out, in addition to being in the covered areas, using a compatible smartphone and having an enabled offer (or an enabling option), to take advantage of its fifth generation network it is also necessary to have a SIM of at least 128K.
In this regard, it is recalled that in this period Vodafone is giving some existing customers the 5G Start option, which allows you to enable for free indefinite 5G navigation with its current offer.
Vodafone has never publicly declared a theoretical maximum speed that can be reached, but on the dedicated page of its site it limits itself to recalling the results of the recent Umlaut test, which highlight how in 5G it can be “Surf 5 times faster than 4G technology”.
However, in the tariff transparency documents of the Vodafone offers enabled for navigation in 5G, the operator specifies that the maximum speeds of navigation attainable with the fifth generation mobile network they are equal to 2 Gbps in download e 200 Mbps in upload.
