Benefits for Business Use
No matter whether you are working from home, on the move or in a busy part of town, you will always be connected. Making a call, sending an email or instant messaging the team, it is guaranteed you will be able to use your data and connect even when it’s busy.
No More Lagging
5G provides a near-instant connection which allows you to seamlessly search and stream whenever you want. There will be no lag or disruption to your daily data usage, increasing productivity and work efficiency.
From large files to app updates, you will be able to download anything on your connected handset in seconds. No more waiting around for documents to download and slowly open, everything will be near enough immediate meaning no time is wasted.
What You Need to Use 5G
You need 3 things to access and use the network:
- A 5G capable handset
- A 5G data plan / tariff
- A 5G available area
If you have a 5G tariff connection but are using a 4G capable handset, you will not be able to use it. Did you upgrade to a 5G tariff, but your handset is over a year old? Unfortunately, you will still not be able to use it. If you have a 5G capable handset but only a 4G tariff connection, you will not be able to use it.
Even when you have both a 5G tariff connection and capable handset, if you are not in an area where it is available, your network with automatically revert to 4G. Luckily, Vodafone have a Network Status Checker to see if 5G is available in your postcode area. Also, you will notice that there are a lot more areas where it is available nowadays and that will continue to increase as the technology is implemented.
