- A network capable of the fastest 4G speeds in 5 capital city areas of Australia
- 2,000 additional sites this year enhancing coverage

- Direct action against bill shock
Morrow, today outlined further network improvements and, thanks to an industry-leading spectrum
position, announced the pending arrival of what will potentially be Australia’s fastest 4G network
across 5 capital cities.
Vodafone customers will be invited to join the company’s 4G network from June, with speeds capable
of exceeding what’s already on offer to Australian mobile consumers.
Outlining a staged roll-out to major metropolitan centres of Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, Wollongong, Newcastle and the Gold Coast, the new 4G service builds on the 3G and 3G+ network upgrades that have occurred over the past two years, showing speeds in test conditions of
downloads and streaming up to 15 times the average speed of the Vodafone 3G network of 1Mbps.
Morrow said customer feedback regarding a 4G service underpinned by a strong 3G service has guided Vodafone’s network build. “Our customers have said they want faster speeds, more coverage, and a dependable network,” he said.
“Our 3G+ and 4G technology provides them with the speed, and we will be adding nearly 2,000 additional sites this year to improve coverage for our customers where they need it most.
“We’ve picked up the pace and are sprinting to meet the current and future needs of our customers.
We are proud to be able to deliver our customers Australia’s fastest 4G network in metro areas backed by a solid 3G+ experience,” said Morrow.
Morrow detailed the raft of changes Vodafone has made to its business and its consumer offering in the past two years, articulating a vision for the future that is designed to win the hearts and minds of Australian mobile consumers.
