Anybody using 5G-DSS yet?

I'm looking for some information on Vodafone's 5G-DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing)

I'm aware Vodafone have turned on NR-DSS in London and I guess the surrounding areas where it can be enabled but wondering how many actually can use it and how it works at user level.

I'm currently trying to assist somebody in Caterham area over at Virgin Media forum who is using a OnePlus nord with Virgin Media sim which is ready to connect to 5G using Vodafone but depite sending them to different mast locations where 5G is supposedly active they aren't getting connection.

Having looked around the area on street view it looks like coverage all over is coming from monopole masts so unlikely to have N78 broadcasting unless a rebuilding on masts has taken place, so I'm thinking that Vodafone may have just turned on DSS on N1.

AFAIK Vodafone's DSS is only on their 2100mhz spectrum (B1/n1).

Has the person's Virgin Mobile SIM definitely been swapped over to use Vodafone's network (not still using EE's?). Also not sure if Vodafone's MVNO's do/will get access to their DSS 5G, or if it'll only be their 'proper' non-DSS 5G.

Certainly has.
Also not sure if Vodafone's MVNO's do/will get access to their DSS 5G, or if it'll only be their 'proper' non-DSS 5G.
I was also wondering this, however the coverage checker at Virgin Media is showing coverage for this person, however what I've just checked in the speeds quoted on the checker (only up to 255mbps) so think its fair to say its DSS.
