Vodafone to boost LTE coverage to 90% by next summer

10 Jul 2015

Vodafone Germany says it plans to expand its LTE network to an additional four million households by summer 2016, increasing coverage of its 4G service to 90% of the population. The UK-owned company will focus on deploying its ‘LTE Zuhause’ mobile broadband and telephony offering in rural and remote regions where there is currently no access to its cable or DSL infrastructure. The average downstream speed of the mobile broadband network is around 15Mbps-20Mbps, but Vodafone says it is working to boost the average surf speed to 30Mbps. The 4G service currently covers over 75% of Germany and is available in around 85% of all large towns and cities, as well as over half of all stadiums, airports, subways and ICE stations, and 84% of all highways routes.
