Vodafone brings 4G+ to Malta
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.
