Vodafone’s 4G –or 4th Generation –network has demonstrated trial speeds that are the fastest currently  on offer in the Australian market of up to 100Mbps.

LTE Business Strategy 2013 – This report provides a global and regional LTE status assessment as well as LTE strategies including application analysis, application roadmap, vision for the future of LTE, and more.

Vodafone CEO Bill Morrow said Vodafone had been working tirelessly to bring its customers the best speeds available in the country: “Australians have told us loud and clear they want a fast and reliable network. We have invested heavily in our 3G and 3G+ networks and we know our wide-band 4G rollout is going to thrill our data-hungry customers.

“Vodafone customers in 4G areas with compatible devices will have access to speeds that are among the fastest not only in the country but in many parts of the world,” Morrow said today.

Vodafone’s unique 2 X 20MHz contiguous spectrum holdings mean the company is among the first in the  world to offer these speeds, outpacing competitors in all of the five mainland capital city areas today.

Launching in selected metro areas of Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane; and Newcastle and  Wollongong, Vodafone’s wide-band 4G network is set to treble by year’s end.

At speeds faster than most high-speed wired connections, customers will be able to stream music and  videos, use apps, social media and email with ease.

Morrow noted today’s announcement was a key milestone in meeting Australians’ demands for good value, fast, reliable mobile services: “We’ve been single-minded in our determination to improve our network, enhance our customer service and offer the best value mobile services in the country.

“We have rebuilt our 3G network and rolled out a brand-new 3G+ network and today we’re offering a leading-edge 4G network to customers on the best value plans in market,” said Morrow.

“Our 4G network launch comes less than two weeks after Vodafone announced a significant expansion into regional Australia and complements our Tasmanian call centre expansion, which will see our already  exceptional customer care team double.

“To say this is an exciting time for the Vodafone brand in Australia is putting it mildly –but we want our customers to be the judge of that and we’re looking forward to hearing what they think of our new 4G network. Our network team has worked around the clock to ensure our 4G launch is an amazing one and I want to publicly acknowledge the fantastic work they have done –it’s world class,” said Morrow.
