Vodafone UK surpasses 100,000 LTE subscribers

Vodafone UK surpasses 100,000 LTE subscribers

Vodafone managed to scoop more than 100,000 subscribers to its LTE network, MobileWorldLive is reporting. This milestone was reached in just seven weeks after launching the network in the UK, and only five weeks since the service went live in London.

Next phase is to bring 4G to other major markets, including Liverpool on October 17th, Glasgow on October 24th, with Manchester following shortly afterwards. The goal is to hit 98% population coverage by 2015.

While that’s all nice, Vodafone is far from a leader in the British 4G market. EE, which was offering LTE services since the end of October 2012, has passed the 1 million mark, covering more than 100 towns and cities throughout the country. That said, we do expect to see Vodafone growing from here, not least thank to that huge cash pile it got from Verizon Communications for its 45% stake in Verizon Wireless. We’ll get back to you when we have something new to add to this story. Stay tuned in the meantime…
