Vodafone adds Hanover, Hamburg to 1Gbps mobile data network

29 Jan 2018

Vodafone Germany has begun offering mobile data speeds of 1Gbps to customers with compatible smartphones in a further two major cities. The UK-owned company has launched the high-speed LTE-A service in Hanover and Hamburg, adding to its existing footprint of Berlin and Dusseldorf, where the first gigabit-capable base stations were activated in October last year. To access the high-speed service, customers require a gigabit-capable handset, such as the Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

Since May 2017, Vodafone Germany has also offered mobile data rates of up to 500Mbps over its LTE-A network by using tri-carrier aggregation (3C) technology in the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz frequency bands, and today 30 cities are able to access these speeds.
