Vodafone Germany has announced the launch of gigabit public Wi-Fi in Berlin during CeBIT 2016, PCWorld reported.

Users can achieve download speeds of up to 1Gbps if no one else is using the hotspot, while uploads went up to 600Mbps.

Berlin has become the second city in the world to receive gigabit public Wi-Fi, according to PCWorld, after CityBridge turned on its first LinkNYC hotspots in New York in January.

Vodafone already has one million public Wi-Fi hotspots in Germany.

Many of these piggyback on the home routers Vodafone manages for its residential broadband subscribers.
