The company has already signed agreements with Magenta Telekom in Austria and Sunrise in Switzerland to allow its customers to use 5G in those countries. It is also possible for Telekom’s customers to use 5G in Taiwan and South Korea, the report added.

It is said that further partner networks will follow in the first half of August. These include the Polish T-Mobile network and an operator not yet mentioned in the People’s Republic of China. The 5G roaming options are to be gradually expanded to other partners and countries. The 5G roaming partners are not yet mentioned on the Telekom website. telekom 5g roaming

Customers whose SIM cards are activated for 5G use within Germany can automatically use the new network standard abroad. A suitable smartphone that supports the 5G standard is required. In addition, it is important to remember that there is currently an effect even at 5G phones that all possible network configurations are not processed can be.

5G roaming also from Vodafone

In the summer of last year, Vodafone was not only the first German mobile operator to activate the 5G network for end consumers. A few days later, the telecom competitor announced the first roaming agreements for 5G . In addition to their home network, customers can also use the new wireless standard in the Vodafone networks in Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Unlike Telekom and Vodafone, Telefónica has not yet started its 5G network. Network start-up should take place in the first major cities this year. Customers in the higher current o2 tariffs should then be able to book a 5G option at no extra charge. It is not yet known when Telefónica will also enable 5G use abroad.

In Germany, Telekom now offers 5G usage in more than 3000 cities and municipalities. By the end of the year, two-thirds of the population should be able to surf the Internet via the 5G network.

Deutsche Telekom campaign to evoke the 5G experience

In recent weeks, Deutsche Telekom has continued working flat out to expand its network. More than 30,000 cities and municipalities across Germany already have access to 5G and, over the last five weeks, a further 18,000 antennas have been upgraded to the technology and integrated into

the live network. As a result, 40 million people can already use 5G. That applies not only to major cities such as Frankfurt or Munich, but also to smaller communities like Wallgau in Upper Bavaria, Lampertswalde in Saxony, or Sankt Goarshausen of Lorelei fame. Even the antennas atop Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze, are now transmitting in 5G technology.

At the same time, the campaign for Germany’s largest 5G network is moving into its second phase. “We initially linked 5G technology closely to the Deutsche Telekom brand,” says Ulrich Klenke, who is in charge of the brand. “That was important and also widely accepted. In the next phase of the journey, we are using a cinematic ad to lend an emotional charge to the subject of 5G and underscoring the technology’s value-add.” The campaign focuses on people who are close to each other thanks to the possibilities offered by the technology; people who represent diversity; people for whom the phrase “let nothing separate us” is crucial and who are experiencing a new form of participation through 5G.
