Vodafone covers Zeeland coast with small cells

Wednesday 27 July 2016 | 15:51 CET | News
Vodafone Netherlands said it's placed small cells at 25 locations along the Zeeland coast in order to improve coverage along beaches. This will give customers at places such as Walcheren and Noord-Beverland better 3G and 4G coverage and also help prevent phones trying to connect to nearby Belgian networks. The small cells were deployed in cooperation with VolkerWessels Telecom. Vodafone said the smaller base stations work well in the beach landscape, without drawing attention or impacting protected nature areas.
