Vodafone New Zealand rolls out 5G service

Vodafone New Zealand Ltd. launched its 5G mobile service in parts of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, New Zealand.

The telecom operator will offer the next-generation mobile service free of charge until June 30, 2020. Customers will be able to continue their 5G access from July 1 next year by subscribing to a 5G add-on for $10 per connection or an equivalent prepay term every month.

Vodafone New Zealand teamed up with Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. to offer the Galaxy A90 5G and Note 10+ 5G smartphones to its customers. Subscribers will also need to be in a 5G-covered area and have a 5G Ready plan to enable 5G access.

The telco also presented two 5G use cases in a launch event in Wellington. These include a 5G-enabled drone that can take videos and feed them to police officers, as well as a 5G heat-map tool that tracks people interactions with products in business establishments.

In August, Vodafone New Zealand tapped technology company Nokia Corp. as a partner to deliver and integrate its 5G network.

Vodafone New Zealand is owned by a consortium that includes infrastructure investment company Infratil Ltd. and Canada-based Brookfield Asset Management Inc.
