Vodafone Germany LTE network reaches 500 Mbps

Tuesday 8 November 2016 | 10:25 CET | News
Vodafone Germany has upgraded its LTE network in Berlin and Dusseldorf to allow download speeds of up to half a gigabyte per second. Previously, the maximum speed possible over Vodafone's LTE networks was 375 Mbps in some German cities. Vodafone demonstrated the new network capability using a Sony Xperia XZ. However, customers will need to install firmware updates to access the new high-speed network. These are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2017, according to a statement from Vodafone.
