Vodafone UK has begun rolling out LTE advanced (LTE-A) technology across the nation.
The technology utilises 800MHz
and 2.6GHz spectrum, which the company secured in last
year’s auction. It is said to provide higher
average speeds to more simultaneous users, including indoors,
where 70% of customers use their mobile device most.
The technology will be rolled out this month in Birmingham,
Manchester and London and to other UK cities during the rest of
this year and 2015.
"This clever technology is the next big step to deliver faster
speeds per user and to increase the capacity so more customers
can enjoy a great 4G experience when and where they want it,"
said Fergal Kelly, technology director, Vodafone UK.
