Voda­fone brings 4G+ to Malta

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Voda­fone Malta is the first op­er­a­tor to bring su­per­fast 4G+ mo­bile in­ter­net to Malta.

The new tech­nol­ogy al­lows for the down­load­ing of data at un­prece­dented speeds, 60 per cent faster than 4G, at up to 210 Mbps.

Af­ter hav­ing first suc­cess­fully rolled out the in­no­va­tive 4G+ net­work in Gozo in June, Voda­fone has now ful­filled its pledge to bring the tech­nol­ogy to Malta.

4G+ has now been switched on in the north of the is­land, with the new net­work be­ing rolled out to other areas over the com­ing weeks.

“So­cial net­work­ing, ac­cess­ing apps, cloud stor­age, load­ing pho­tos and video stream­ing are all ac­tiv­i­ties that we’ve grown ac­cus­tomed to do­ing on the move,” said Head of Tech­nol­ogy Sheila Ka­vanagh. “The de­mand for data has ex­ploded due to con­tent-rich plat­forms such as Face­book and Snapchat, which re­volve around the use of high def­i­ni­tion video clips. The new 4G+ tech­nol­ogy will of­fer a faster, smoother and higher qual­ity view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence de­void of buffer­ing, con­nect­ing our cus­tomers in­stantly.”

Head of En­ter­prise Kenneth Spi­teri said that 4G+ will open up a new world of mo­bil­i­sa­tion for business clients. “4G+ will vastly im­prove video calls and cloud-based apps, whilst en- abling our business clients to launch new ser­vices on the move for their own cus­tomer base in var­i­ous in­dus­tries such as me­dia, trans­port, dis­tri­bu­tion, med­i­cal, safety, se­cu­rity and pro­fes­sional ser­vices, to name but a few.

“Voda­fone keeps lead­ing in­no­va­tion in mo­bile tech­nol­ogy in Malta, with the new 4G+ tech­nol­ogy be­ing at least 1.5 times faster than the tech­nol­ogy op­er­ated by any of its com­peti­tors.”

4G+ speeds will au­to­mat­i­cally be avail­able to cus­tomers with com­pat­i­ble phones.
