Vodafone launches 5G for all Pay As You Go customers

Vodafone launches 5G for all Pay As You Go customers
  • Vodafone launches contract-free 5G for Pay As You Go customers on the UK’s best mobile network
  • Customers can enjoy unlimited data and access to 5G in more places across Europe than any other operator
  • 5G with Vodafone comes at no extra cost

Today, Vodafone has launched 5G and unlimited data to all Pay As You Go (PAYG) customers. The new offering is perfect for customers who want the flexibility of a contract-free SIM, or for people travelling to the UK who want to benefit from speeds up to 10 times faster than 4G. Those who want to take advantage of 5G can enjoy benefits such as downloading music, streaming movies and mobile gaming faster than ever before, with no lag or dropout.

Vodafone offers 5G at no additional cost and customers can enjoy unlimited data and access to 5G in more places across the UK and Europe than any other operator. Vodafone is the only UK network to offer 5G roaming – meaning PAYG customers who already have a 5G smartphone can now take advantage of this exclusive offering. For more information, please visit our website.

Furthermore, Vodafone has recently been named as the UK’s best mobile network by the independent testing company nPerf who measured download speed, upload speed, latency, browsing and streaming performance. nPerf’s testing showed that Vodafone had the highest combined score across all categories versus its competitors.

Vodafone UK Chief Executive Officer Nick Jeffery said: “We want to enable our customers to do what they want when they want – our Unlimited plans do just that. Launching a contract-free 5G Unlimited plan will give more people the opportunity to experience the next generation of speed and connectivity without being committed to a contract – giving them the power to be as flexible as they want.”

To take advantage of Vodafone’s 5G network, customers will need a 5G plan and 5G handset. PAYG customers have the choice of three top-of-the-range 5G handsets – Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Huawei Mate 20X and Samsung Galaxy S10. PAYG customers who want 5G will get unlimited data, as well as speeds as fast as their phone allows with an introductory £40 Big Value Bundle worth £50.

Customers looking to take advantage of this offer can do so by visiting our website.

About Vodafone UK

Vodafone UK is a technology communications company that connects people, businesses and devices to help our customers benefit from digital innovation. Our services span mobile, fixed-line connections, home and office broadband, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

We have a strong track record as a tech pioneer, making the UK’s first mobile phone call, sending the first text message, and making the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G in 2018. We were also the first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. As of June 2021, we have 5G in 364 locations across Europe – 124 in the UK and 240 across Germany, Spain, Italy and Ireland. Our 4G network coverage currently reaches over 99% of the UK population.

Today, Vodafone serves more than 18 million mobile and fixed-line customers in the UK. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 24 UK towns and cities, rising to 34 over the coming months, through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach. By spring 2022, our target is to make full fibre services available to more than eight million homes across the UK.

Sustainability is also at the heart of what we do: as of 1 July 2021, 100% of the grid electricity we use in the UK is certified to be from renewable sources.
