Virgin Media launches UK 5G network Virgin Media 5G

Virgin Media has launched its 5G mobile service, using Vodafone’s network to deliver average speeds of 176.2Mbps – four and a half times the bitrates delivered by the former’s 4G offering – in 100 towns and cities across the UK.

As a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), Virgin Media does not own or operate a radio network and relies on one of the major operators – EE, O2, Three or Vodafone – to connect customers.
