Vodafone’s CR’s LTE investment tops CZK5bn

12 Jun 2015

Vodafone’s Czech mobile arm invested CZK5 billion (USD206.7 million) in its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network over the past two years, noting that its strategy to focus on high speed mobile internet has resulted in in a reduction in churn and an increase in the user base. Telecompaper quotes Vodafone CR director Balesh Sharma as saying that between October 2014 and March 2015 the company added a net 41,000 customers as a result of the plan. The Czech cellco currently operates more than 3,000 base stations across the country, and says its Turbo Internet service – an amalgam of its 3G and 4G LTE networks – is now available to 97% of the population in 87% of the territory of the Republic. Further, as of March this year, 80% of the devices sold by the company support the newer LTE standard.
