Vodafone launches 4G in Palmerston North

Vodafone launches 4G in Palmerston North

Vodafone launches 4G – the world’s fastest mobile network technology – in parts of Palmerston North today.

Russell Stanners, CEO of Vodafone New Zealand, says the launch of a commercial 4G network is great news for the city.

“4G has captured customers’ imaginations. And with 4G available to over 93% of Palmerston North’s population, there’s even more opportunity for locals and visitors to experience the speed of 4G.

“We’re proud to be the first to bring superfast 4G to Palmerston North, only on the Vodafone SuperNet™. Now you can use 4G when you’re checking out the rose gardens, visiting the Te Manawa gallery and museum or simply enjoying a stroll around the city.”

Vodafone’s 4G network is up to 10 times faster than standard 3G services*, allowing customers to stream, download, upload, browse and game faster than ever before. And 4G delivers a near seamless connection to the cloud, allowing businesses to upload and download attachments in seconds, and load web pages instantly.

Vodafone offers the largest range of 4G-capable devices at a range of price points – 16 now, including the recently launched Samsung GALAXY S4 Mini, Sony Xperia SP, Blackberry Z10 and Huawei Ascend G526. Three new 4G-capable devices – the Samsung GALAXY S4 Active, Nokia Lumia 925 and Pocket WiFi R212 – will be available from Vodafone soon.

Kiwis wanting to experience the speed of 4G will need a 4G-capable device with the latest software, a qualifying plan and be in a 4G coverage area. The device seamlessly switches to Vodafone’s next fastest 3G speeds when customers leave the 4G coverage area.

Vodafone customers can keep control of 4G data use with Vodafone’s exclusive Data Angel® service. Data Angel® alerts customers when they’re approaching their data allowance limit, and when their limit is reached – letting customers use their device freely while staying in control of how much they spend.

Vodafone’s 4G network build is being carried out in partnership with long-standing partner Nokia Siemens Networks – next stop New Plymouth.
