Vodafone to roll out its 4G network from June
Vodafone will start the roll out its 4G network across five Australian capitol cities in June and implement further improvements to its existing networks.
Customers will be able to experience higher speeds in the major metropolitan centres of Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Wollongong, Newcastle and the Gold Coast.
There will also be 3G and 3G+ network improvements to continue the work that has been carried out in the past two years.
Vodafone CEO Bill Morrow said feedback from customers have played a big part on the development and planning of the company’s 4G network.
“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,” said Morrow
“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.”
Vodafone has also announced changes to the way data is charged on both pre-paid and post-paid plans along and launched spend alerts for customers to avoid bill shock.
“These are brave moves that in many ways are against where our competitors are focused, and they will help us earn back the hearts and minds of the Australian people,” Morrow said.
“I am confident our unrelenting focus listening and acting on the voice of the customer will ensure we win.
“We’re not done yet but our journey is well underway and we have our sights firmly on earning back the trust of our customers and restoring Vodafone to its place as one of Australia’s most admired brands.”
