5G is the fifth generation of mobile networks and it will bring faster speeds, more reliable connections and lower latency to your mobile experience.

To experience 5G you must have a 5G ready device, a 5G ready plan that is 5G enabled and 5G coverage. Coverage is subject to availability and may be affected by a number of factors.

How is Vodafone powered by 100% renewable electricity?

100% of the grid electricity that Vodafone uses in its European network is matched with renewable energy certificates (‘RECs’). These certify that power has been generated and added to the grid from a renewable source such as wind, solar or hydro. 

In addition, we purchase a growing proportion of our electricity directly from renewable generators through Power Purchase Agreements (‘PPAs’).
