Vodafone achieves 67Mbps in 4G tests
blog We want to do a more comprehensive examination of this situation at a later date, but for now we want to just briefly highlight the fact that ailing mobile telco Vodafone has finally kicked off trials of its new 4G network and is achieving top-range speeds of up to 67Mbps and upload speeds of up to 30Mbps. The telco has posted a blog entry online with all the details and we’re hoping to get access to the infrastructure ourselves soon. The telco writes:
“We conducted our initial calls at our 4G base station in Alexandria and on the streets of Sydney’s Eastern suburbs using category 3 devices. The calls for voice, mms and sms went off without a hitch. For our speed tests, we used speedtest.net app, where we recorded super fast download test speeds ranging between 60Mbps to 67Mbps and upload test in the 25-30Mbps range.”
Given that Telstra already has some 1.5 million customers on its 4G network and even Optus has had its 4G network operational in some areas for almost a year now, to say that we’re quite skeptical about Vodafone’s chances of success in the emerging 4G market is a collossal understatement. However, there may be some differences between the three networks in practice which may actually give Vodafone an advantage in some ways. The big V is strongly pitching its argument that it has more wireless spectrum available for its 4G network than either Telstra or Optus. See this comparison table the telco has published for more details. We’re not quite sure how this difference will end up panning out in practice, but it will sure be interesting to find out.
