Africa’s First 5G Mobile Network
SA’s Vodacom Group has switched on its 5G mobile network in 3 cities, with further rollouts planned in other parts of the country. Vodacom was recently assigned temporary additional spectrum by ICASA for the duration of the national state of disaster, including 1 x 50 MHz in the 3.5 GHz band, which has been used to fast track its 5G launch. In February, Vodacom Chief Executive Shameel Joosub said Vodacom expects to offer 5G mobile services to its South African customers this year by using a network being built by another African operator, Liquid Telecom.
