Vodafone 4G will roll-out in another five cities on September 28th.
We couldn't help feeling underwhelmed when Vodafone launched their 4G network because it's currently only available in London. That doesn't compare favourably with EE's network which is already available in 105 towns and cities across the UK.
However, things just got a little rosier because Vodafone have now confirmed that they are rolling out their 4G network to another 5 cities on September 28th. The 5 cities getting Vodafone 4G later this month are : Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield.
Before the end of the year Vodafone will rollout in Bradford, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle. That'll bring the total number of Vodafone 4G enabled cities to 13 - still lagging behind EE's 4G rollout , but on an equal footing with O2.
More good news... Vodafone have announced that new and existing 4G customers will get an extra 4GB of data added to their tariff. Those already on a Vodafone 4G Red plan will get the extra data added automatically, while new customers signing up before the end of October will also get 4G of free additional data.
Vodafone already offer its 4G customers the choice of either Sky Sports Mobile (normally £4.99) or Spotify Premium (normally £9.99) subscription for 6 months. Vodafone 4G customers also get free access to BT WiFi hotspots and Vodafone's "5 Star Care" plan.
