UK’s first 5G train station connected as Vodafone live tests 5G in Birmingham

Vodafone is the first company to live test 5G in Birmingham as part of its UK-wide trial, with Birmingham New Street becoming the first train station to test the new, faster mobile technology.

Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, tested the region's new technology on the New Street concourse. Passengers at the station were also invited to test 5G speeds using a 5G router.

When compatible 5G handsets and devices arrive later this year, commuters in busy locations will be able to load a web page or a video instantly. Thanks to super low latency, they will be able to stream a movie or download a work file over 5G seamlessly without buffering or lag. Vodafone is rolling out 5G to a number of key commuter locations across the UK during 2019; and will switch on the new network in 19 towns and cities, including Wolverhampton, by the end of the year.

The introduction of 5G services supports the West Midlands Combined Authority's strategy to give consumers and businesses in Birmingham and the surrounding area the very latest digital communications.

Live testing is now also taking place at a number of sites across the city. The sites are all connected to Vodafone's multi-billion-pound single optical fibre converged network, which is already providing customers in the city with fast 4G mobile, home broadband, Internet of Things (IoT) technology and business services.

The West Midlands Urban Connected Communities 5G Project (UCC), initiated and jointly funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), will create the UK's first region-wide 5G test bed and will roll out later this year.
