Vodafone Australia removes restriction on 4G sign-ups

10 Jul 2013

Vodafone Australia has announced the launch of commercial LTE services for new customers, with products having previously been restricted to existing Vodafone subscribers with compatible 4G devices.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, Vodafone activated LTE services for customers in parts of Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Newcastle and Wollongong in early July 2013. At launch it claimed that speeds on the network will reach 100Mbps, faster than those of its rivals Telstra and Optus in most areas due to it having access to 2×20MHz of contiguous spectrum in the 1800MHz band, unlike its competitors.
