Vodafone 4G to be switched on for five MVNOs

More Australians to get the Vodafone 4G experience

Vodafone has announced it is switching on 4G for five more of its Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs).

Over the next two weeks, Lebara, Macquarie Telecom, Hello Mobile, Go Talk and Pivotel Prepaid will join TPG Mobile and Kogan Mobile on the Vodafone 4G network.

Vodafone Head of Wholesale Paul Tierney said the move will mean faster data speeds for customers of those MVNOs.

“We’ve invested billions of dollars in the Vodafone network over recent years, and we’re very pleased to be offering our fast, reliable 4G services to more of our MVNOs,” Mr Tierney said.

“Provided they have a 4G capable device, customers of these MVNOs will be able to enjoy the Vodafone 4G network for browsing the internet, and streaming, uploading and downloading content.

“Our network achieved a 40 per cent improvement in last year’s CommsDay P3 Mobile Benchmark report*, so we’re confident our MVNO customers will have a great experience.”

Vodafone 4G is available in all major metro locations and selected regional areas across Australia.
