Vodafone launches 4G LTE services on 850MHz in Adelaide

Tuesday 7 October 2014 | 12:57 CET | News
Vodafone Australia has launched 4G LTE services, using 850MHz spectrum, in Adelaide's CBD and suburbs. The deployment is expected to provide Vodafone customers with better indoor and greater outdoor coverage across metropolitan Adelaide, ZDNet reports, citing Vodafone CTO Benoit Hanssen. "The type of spectrum we've used to roll this out is known as low band, which means it works better indoors, including homes, businesses, shopping malls, and car parks," Hanssen said.
