Vodafone to increase global 4G coverage

Vodafone to increase global 4G coverage

UK network Vodafone has announced customers will soon have access to its 4G services in 58 destinations around the world.

The firm claims it has now extended coverage of its superfast mobile broadband to cover more locations than any other British network.

From June 15th, customers around the world will be able to access 4G services in 30 destinations covered by the company's WorldTraveller service.

Mobile broadband has become an increasingly important part of the UK's growing emphasis on flexible working, which has provided a number of benefits for companies in various industries.

This latest move by Vodafone will undoubtedly pique the interest of businesses looking to expand their international horizons, with Vodafone's 4G service now allowing business travellers and customers on certain price plans to use their UK data, minutes and texts while abroad for £5 a day.

The service has already been established in eight existing destinations, including  Australia and the United States, but it is now set to extend to 22 more countries.

Nations covered by this latest rollout will include the picturesque islands of Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados, Jamaica, Antigua and several Central and South American countries such as Panama, Salvador and Guyana.

Vodafone's 4G coverage in the UK has made gains too, with the Yorkshire towns of Harrogate and Knaresborough the latest to be earmarked for coverage.

Figures released in March revealed only 28 per cent of North Yorkshire was covered by the 3G phone signal with 4G covering two per cent of the county.
