Vodafone Starting Major Network Upgrade Next Week, LTE By The End Of The Year

What's that? Your Vodafone coverage has been pretty bad? Well, there's good news on its way - Vodafone has announced it will begin a major upgrade of its network starting next week, and plans to launch LTE services by the end of the year.

The core element of the Vodafone upgrade is to shift from multiple Ericsson cabinets at each base station to a single Huawei SingleRAN cabinet, which can control 2G, 3G and LTE networks.

The upgrade will begin next Tuesday on the NSW Central Coast, before rolling out to all 5800 current base station sites over the next 18 months.

Good news for Vodafone customers, especially if they manage to end up with super-fast LTE services sooner than the competition.
