Vodacom Set to Launch 5G in South Africa


Vodacom has signed a roaming agreement with Liquid Telecom to launch 5G services in South Africa in the course of this year. Vodacom is banking on Liquid’s 3.5 GHz spectrum required for 5G, to enable it offer the services to its subscribers.

This development thus makes Vodacom the first mobile operator in South Africa to offer 5G to mobile users.

However, this is not the first time that South Africa will have a taste of 5G. In September last year, Rain, a data services company, partnered with Huawei to launch 5G services in the country, covering Johannesburg and Tshwane.
