Vodacom launched 5G products in South Africa

Vodacom, along with Liquid Telecom and Rain, has launched its 5G products in South Africa. Currently, there is a strong need for affordable fixed-broadband services in South Africa and 5G can contribute to boost demand.

“We reiterate our call to license 5G spectrum in South Africa as soon as possible, as this spectrum is not subject to any digital migration processes,” Vodacom said.

Particularly, there is a large amount of spectrum in the 2.6GHz and 3.5GHz bands which is currently not being used and can be licensed to enable a meaningful 5G network rollout.
