Vodafone has enlisted six-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton to showcase the potential of its 5G network as part of its 5G gamechanger campaign.

A keen piano player, Hamilton has joined musician and producer Jay Keys for the world’s first 5G piano duet. Thanks to the real time, low latency speeds of 5G, the pair were able to play together as if they were in the same place at the same time.     

Vodafone used specially developed technology to send data relating to the touch and pressure on each instrument, allowing the pair to create one synchronised movement as if they were playing together.
