Vodafone UK is a technology communications company that connects people, businesses and devices to help our customers benefit from digital innovation. Our services span mobile, fixed-line connections, home and office broadband, and the Internet of Things (IoT). We have a strong track record as a tech pioneer, making the UK’s first mobile phone call, sending the first text message, and making the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G in 2018. We were also the first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. As of June 2021, we have 5G in 364 locations across Europe – 124 in the UK and 240 across Germany, Spain, Italy and Ireland. Our 4G network coverage currently reaches over 99% of the UK population.
We value and respect all individuals irrespective of race, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, belief, background, culture or religion. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is core to our Purpose and in our work on empowering women and society at large and improving access to education and digital skills. Vodafone is also taking significant steps to reduce our impact on our planet by reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2025 and becoming net zero by 2040, purchasing 100% of our electricity from renewable sources by 2021 in Europe and the rest of the world by 2025, and reusing, reselling or recycling 100% of our redundant network equipment.
