Commercial 5G is being launched in Ireland for the first time.

Vodafone has become the first mobile operator to introduce the network, which is going live in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Waterford today.

The company says it’ll provide faster internet speeds and will have a huge impact on technology use in nearly every industry, including artificial intelligence and self-driving cars.

Vodafone is also launching a strategic partnership with University College Cork to create the world’s first 5G connected telemedicine and medical robotics training centre.
