UKs first 5G Hologram call
Super-fast mobile streaming could be just around the corner….
We are very excited about the POWER and TECHNOLOGICAL ABBILITIES of the new 5g tower in Manchester. Vodafone conducted the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G technology. The call featured England and Manchester City Women’s Football Captain, Steph Houghton MBE. Using 5G technology, Steph appeared as a live 3D hologram on stage in front of an audience at Vodafone’s UK headquarters in Newbury.
Steph’s hologram gave footballing tips to 11-year-old Manchester City and Lionesses fan, Iris, in Newbury. The exchange demonstrated the exciting possibilities that new technology can bring to sport, including remote coaching and training, as well as the opportunity to bring sports fans closer to their idols. This is a significant milestone in UK communications.
