Vodafone Australia expands 850MHz LTE to Adelaide

6 Oct 2014

Vodafone Australia has announced that it has switched on its 850MHz LTE network in Adelaide, according to iTWire, with the cellco’s chief technical officer Benoit Hanssen cited as saying: ‘Customers will immediately notice the difference right across Adelaide and its outer suburbs following a mass switch on of new 4G coverage today.’

The development is in line with plans announced by Vodafone back in July 2014. As previously reported by CommsUpdate, at that the mobile operator outlined plans to ‘significantly boost’ 4G coverage for more than 1.5 million customers using its 850MHz spectrum. According to the cellco, by refarming its frequencies in the aforementioned band it expects to offer 4G coverage to 95% of the country’s metropolitan population by the end of this year.
