He Movistar 5G+, which offers users significant benefits over 5G, is now available in Spain. The operator announced the rollout of the 3500 MHz network in various cities in Spain at no additional cost to the customer, who will receive this upgrade automatically.

One of the main advantages of Movistar’s 5G+ network is the increased speed and low latency. The 3500 MHz band, distributed by Ericsson and Nokia, offers speeds up to 1600 Mbps, allowing the user to download faster, stream high-quality content without interruption, or play games using mobile data in a more convenient way. 5G+ also improves quality and prevents network collapse in crowded placesLike at concerts.

For now, the Movistar network, also referred to as 5G SA (from Stand Alone acronym), will be rolled out in 11 Spanish cities: Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Malaga, Seville, Palma de Mallorca, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Avila, Segovia, Castellón, El Ferrol and Vigo. The company expects that by the end of the year the network will be available in most cities with a population of more than 250,000 people, as well as in other small towns. And all this despite the fact that Movistar offers 5G coverage in 85% of Spain.

5G+ from Movistar is provided automatically and at no additional cost


Movistar confirmed that 5G+ will be available to all customers automatically. That is, the user does not have to make any changes, although for its operation it is necessary to activate the use of 5G networks on the mobile phone. It will be possible to check if the device is connected to the 3500 MHz network, as a “5G SA” or “5G+” icon will appear next to the coverage icon.

You have to take into account yes that not all smartphones are compatible with this type of network, although most modern models support this connection. Movistar, for its part, has confirmed that some Xiaomi models available in its catalog already have 5G SA support, with others to be added “in the coming weeks.”

Movistar is also not the only one offering 5G+ in Spain. Orange has also been doing this for several months now. Like Telefónica, it does this free of charge for its customers.
