Vodafone 4G and 3G to cover 94% of Wales

Vodafone’s investment in its mobile network will ensure that 94% of Wales will have 3G and 4G coverage as the company continues to expand its 4G network.

Vodafone’s investment in its mobile network will ensure that 94% of Wales will have 3G and 4G coverage as the company continues to expand its 4G network.

The latest improvements in Caerphilly, Cardiff, Llanelli and Newport will improve mobile phone services with greater indoor and outdoor coverage with increased mobile internet access.

The company has already greatly improved the rural 3G coverage under the Rural Open Sure Signal programme, which has provided new network coverage in partnership with the local community, the national and local government.

Welsh Economy Minister Edwina Hart said, “connectivity is a key priority for the Welsh government and the news that Vodafone is investing in Wales with its network and services is very welcome.

The rollout of Vodafone’s 4G will mean fast internet speeds which will benefit residents, businesses and visitors alike.

I also warmly welcome the improvements in connectivity that the local communities shortlisted for the Rural Open Sure Signal programme will see.”

Jorge Fernandes, chief technical officer for Vodafone UK, said: “Our network improvements across Wales will ensure more people and businesses have the opportunity to thrive in today’s digital world.

The launch of 4G will give them the opportunity to access and share data faster than ever before.”

He added, “however, this is only the start as we continue to invest in our network and services across the country.”
