Vodafone 4G arrives in ACT

Canberra LTE rollout still under way

Vodafone has announced 4G mobile service is now available in the Australian Capital Territory.

The number-three telco said it has switched on the high-speed LTE service in parts of Acton, Civic, Crace, Downer, Franklin, Greenway, Harrison, Latham, Lyneham, Mitchell, Reid, Tuggeranong and Turner. More locations are expected to be added soon.

4G in Australia: The state of the nation

“Vodafone’s 4G network is continuing to roll out around the country and we are pleased that we are able to offer fast, reliable 4G in the nation’s capital,” Vodafone CTO Benoit Hanssen said in a statement.

Last week, Vodafone announced that it now has one million devices connected to its 4G network across Australia.

The ACT rollout is part of a major investment that Vodafone has made in upgrading its network.

“I’m very confident customers who haven’t been with us in a while and those who have never tried Vodafone will be extremely satisfied with how our networks are performing today,” said Hanssen.

While still losing customers, Vodafone has begun to slow the exodus. The telco reported a loss of about 22,000 customers in the last quarter of 2013, a relatively small number compared to the previous quarter when Vodafone lost 584,000.
