VODAFONE 4G NOW AVAILABLE IN MORE DESTINATIONS ACROSS THE WORLD

VODAFONE 4G NOW AVAILABLE IN MORE DESTINATIONS ACROSS THE WORLD

Vodafone UK has added Albania, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Jordan and Mauritius to the destinations in which its customers are able to use 4G.  This means that Vodafone customers can now use 4G in 63 destinations across the world, more than any other UK mobile provider, meaning faster access to data whilst travelling abroad.

That’s not all, customers can also opt into Vodafone EuroTraveller or Vodafone WorldTraveller – whether on 4G or not – in more than 70 destinations across the world.

A customer can take their UK minutes, texts and data with them from just £3 extra a day.   This means anyone on a Vodafone Red bundle – which includes unlimited calls and texts – can call or text home without worrying about unexpected bills. In addition, data usage costs the same abroad as it does at home.  There’s no charge to receive calls or texts and customers only pay for the days they use their device overseas.

Vodafone EuroTraveller and WorldTraveller are both available on mobile broadband – great news for those wanting to take their tablet with them.

About Vodafone UK

Vodafone UK connects people, businesses and devices to help our customers benefit from digital innovation. Our services span mobile, fixed line connections, home and office broadband and the Internet of Things (IoT).

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.

We are part of Vodafone Group, one of the world’s largest technology communications companies, with mobile operations in 26 countries, partnerships with mobile networks in 55 more, and fixed broadband operations in 19 markets.  As of 30 September 2019, Vodafone Group had approximately 625 million mobile customers, 27 million fixed broadband customers, and 22 million TV customers – including all of the customers in Vodafone’s joint ventures and associates.
