Has 5G launched today?

I came across this so it must have just launched

https://www.virginmedia.com/mobile/5g

Not in Nottingham though. I seem to be waiting for everything from 5G to 1gig

Yes for those taking out a new 5G phone or SIM only deal initially.

5G customers will move from using EE to Vodafone, so it is worth checking Vodafone's other coverage where you operate before committing yourself

Re: Has 5G launched today?

Thanks for that
When I got a new phone at the end of November, I went for the Oppo Find X2 Pro which is 5G ready.

I've had a look on the Vodafone website and it looks like they are aiming for coverage in Nottingham in 3 months time if I've read it right.
Much appreciate your answer

I'm in Liverpool and already on Vodafone. 5G is patchy and will remain so until OFCOM auction off more frequencies. That has now been put back 2 months initially so roll out will be slow for the next couple of years.

Will 5G service support Apple Watch cellular as it will be on Vodafone ?

Not at the moment because the phone needs an eSIM and these are not available on Virgin. 

Vodafone will be used for signal, nothing else
