Vodafone Level up! Are you 5G ready?

Vodafone Level up! Are you 5G ready?
Friday, February 26, 2021

Vodafone has just hit the ‘level up’ button for 2021, launching 5G. If you happen to call Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, or Queenstown home, you’ll be able to get superfast 5G wireless home broadband through Vodafone only.

What is 5G?

Basically, it’s like upgrading your iphone, this is the next best model of internet. It’s fast, it’s consistent, it’s reliable. The words we all have been craving to hear for this year.

If you use fixed wireless broadband at home, your broadband service is likely to be provided by your local 3G or 4G mobile network (rather than a local fibre network). Upgrading to the new 5G network with Vodafone will offer unparalleled speed and performance, if you are lucky enough to live in the coverage area.

How fast if 5G?

Like to stream all the leading shows? Well 5G is the winner for you. Tested to stand up to the critics, in LESS than 60 seconds, it downloaded a seven-episode top series from Netflix. No more waiting around to binge watch your weekend away.

If you use fixed wireless broadband at home, upgrading to 5G will offer unparalleled performance. With speeds of up to 100 gigabits per second, 5G has the potential to be 100 times faster than 4G. In short, 5G is smarter, faster and more efficient than 4G. It promises mobile data speeds that far outstrip the fastest home broadband network currently available to consumers.

5G also has much lower latency than 4G. Latency refers to the amount of time it takes between when information is sent to a device until it can be used by the receiver. In short, you’ll be able to download and upload files quickly and easily, and stream 4K videos without buffering

How much is 5G Wireless Broadband?

Vodafone are the first network provider to kick off the spread of 5G fixed-wireless access, from $69 per month, or unlimited for $79 per month. Add a wireless phone “line” for an additional $10 per month with no installation charge.
