With a 5G smartphone you can already use the currently fastest 5G mobile network here in Germany. In mid-July 2019, Vodafone put its first 5G transmission masts into operation. Since then you can experience 5G speed in selected cities such as Cologne, Munich and Berlin. The German Telekom already offers suitable 5G rates on.


Mobile phone tariffs with 5G

Both Vodafone and Telekom already include 5G in the Red / Young and Magenta tariffs. If you have one of these tariffs, you can surf the 5G network with a 5G-capable cell phone. In fact, 5G doesn’t even have to be expensive – at least that’s what Vodafone thinks. Because here there are tariffs from around 10 euros per month including 5G! This increases Vodafone’s pressure on Telekom, whose 5G tariffs start at around EUR 20. (Applies to tariffs under 28 years)

Vodafone: Red tariffs with 5G from EUR 19.99 a month

Vodafone: Young tariffs (under 28 years) with 5G from 14.99 euros per month

Telekom: Magenta tariffs with 5G from 39.95 euros per month

Telekom: Magenta Young tariffs (under 28 years) from EUR 19.99 per month

More 5G phones from Sony, LG and Co. Also from Apple?

With the V50 ThinQ 5G, LG also offers a 5G-capable cell phone, but this is not available in Germany. At the end of February, LG announced the successor V60 ThinQ with 5G, which will be launched in March – also in Europe. With its Xperia 1 II, Sony recently launched its first 5G phone , which also boasts a 4K display. And Oppo shows its new flagship models on March 6, which will probably also spark in the 5G network. There are actually more 5G phones, for example from ZTE or Realme, but you cannot buy many of the models in Germany at all.

Apple has so far waived the 5G standard. It doesn’t matter. Since the 5G network is not yet sufficiently developed in this country, you cannot exploit the full potential of the speed anyway. According to rumors, the iPhone 12 coming in autumn will probably be launched with a 5G module. The iPhone is also equipped for 5G if the network is to be expanded across the board in 2021.
