Vodafone Australia plans LTE launch for 2013

Tuesday 26 June 2012 | 09:07 CET | News
Vodafone Hutchison Australia announced it's nearing completion of its HSPA+ network roll-out and plans to launch LTE next year. The mobile operator said that it is on schedule to complete its AUD 1 billion investment and two-year roll-out of its new mobile network by the end of this year. This includes the introduction of dual-carrier HSPA+ in the 850MHz band. The network roll-out is complete in Western Australia, the Northern Territory, South Australia, Tasmania and Canberra. Work in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne started recently, and Vodafone will complete the upgrades to all sites on the Eastern Seaboard later this year. The HSPA+ service should be available from September, and Vodafone plans to start a LTE roll-out next year. The new network agreement with Optus should also expand network coverage, to 96 percent of the Australian population from as early as April 2013. More information on the LTE timing will be released towards the end of this year, pending contract negotiations.
