Vodafone today announced that its 4G service is now available in 58 destinations across the world, more than any other UK mobile provider.

Customers also will be able to take advantage of Vodafone WorldTraveller in more destinations than ever before this summer. From 15 June, 22 destinations, including the Caribbean islands of Antigua, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and Trinidad & Tobago, will join the eight destinations across the world already covered by Vodafone WorldTraveller. Pay monthly customers and business travellers on certain price plans, using their mobile, tablet and dongle in any of these 30 destinations can take their existing UK minutes, texts and data with them for just an extra £5 a day.

Customers travelling within Europe can use Vodafone EuroTraveller for just £3 extra a day. More than 2.5 million customers have chosen to opt into Vodafone EuroTraveller, so they can take their UK minutes, texts and data to anywhere in 40 destinations.

Vodafone EuroTraveller is available on all Pay monthly price plans and a wide number of business price plans. This means customers on Vodafone Red bundles – which include unlimited calls and texts – are able to call or text home using Vodafone EuroTraveller and Vodafone WorldTraveller, without worrying about unexpected bills. By opting in to either service, there’s no charge for receiving calls or texts and customers only pay for the days they use their device abroad. Vodafone EuroTraveller and Vodafone WorldTraveller are also available to customers using 4G whilst abroad, and from 1 June, mobile broadband will be added to both packages.

Having made the UK’s first mobile phone call and sent the first text message, Vodafone has a history as a tech pioneer. In 2018 we made the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G, and were first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. We now have 5G in more places than anyone else, with multiple locations now live across the UK and the rest of Europe.

Today we serve more than 18 million mobile and fixed line customers in the UK, with 4G network coverage at 99%.  Our customers voted us the UK’s Best Mobile Network at the 2018 Trusted Reviews Awards – for the second year in a row. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 15 UK towns and cities through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach.

Connectivity is at the heart of what we do as it gives us a huge opportunity for good. We are using our network, products, talents and technology to help society prosper and respond to significant social and environmental issues.  Our free Digital Parenting magazine is helping families and schools across the UK to navigate the online world safely. Meanwhile, the Vodafone Foundation’s work with researchers at Imperial College is developing personalised cancer treatment using the processing power of smartphones.
