Vodafone Spain secures Biscay govt mobile services contract

Tuesday 13 January 2015 | 08:44 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has been awarded a three-year contract worth around EUR 234,000 to provide mobile telephony services to the regional government of Spain's northern Biscay region. The operator won the tender to handle the regional government's voice, data and M2M services after submitting what was described as the most competitive offer. Vodafone activated LTE services in the region's capital of Bilbao back in May 2013 and has recently introduced its LTE-A service in the city, allowing customers to download at theoretical speeds of up to 300 Mbps, double the current top speed of 150 Mbps.
