Vodafone NL CEO: 'new technology phase has started'

Thursday 13 November 2014 | 10:49 CET | News
A new technological phase is beginning in which consumers as well as businesses are embracing mobile internet on a massive scale, according to Rob Shuter, CEO of Vodafone Netherlands. Speaking at the Telecompaper Mobiel 2014 conference, he said 4G is playing an important role in this. "4G is now within hand's reach of everyone - even entry-level smartphones now support LTE. We are also seeing increasing demand from businesses for mobile internet dongles to support mobile workers." Data traffic on Vodafone's Dutch network rose 76 percent year-on-year in the past quarter to 5,065 million MB.
