Vodafone 4G internet services in New Zealand

3 March 2013 367 views No Comment

Vodafone 4G mobile internet is now available in New Zealand, in parts of Auckland, for the first time in history. Australia had launched it in 2011 and the US and Scandinavia in 2010.
At present Auckland CBD and inner suburbs, Manukau City, Blockhouse Bay, Howick and Greenhithe have not been facilitated. It was surveyed where the most users were and the service was provided to the areas with high density of users. After Auckland, Christchurch is queued and then comes Wellington.
Mr. Stanner hopes that Vodafone would take it to rural areas too with the condition of its success in bidding on part of the radio spectrum when the Government will auction it till the end of this year. “This is absolutely made for rural,” he says. “It really does start to change the game and help rural businesses.”
High quality 4G:
Chief executive Russell Stanners assures a 4G quality that has never been observed before. “Its first class speed, if you use an airline analogy. But it’s not just speed, everything just seems better”, he said. People will notice videos being played faster and music streaming being quicker. Skype and Facetime’s performance will also be bettered.
Fourth generation mobile technology brings faster downloads with it. Smartphone and tablet’s speed is remarkably increased with it. It will charge $10 extra per month but it will give Smartphone business plans.
Handsets for 4G:
Only some of the Smart phones can run 4G. These include:
1. Apple’s iPhone 5
2. Windows Phone 8X by HTC
3. Samsung GALAXY Note II 4G
4. iPad and iPad Mini, newest models.


4G runs at 100mb per second speed. Everyday speed is likely to be 30mb to 40mb per second. 3G top speed reaches 42mb per second. Everyday speed is 10mb to 20mb per second. Only a small software upgrade will be required to access 4G.
Telecom is still trying 4G, and 2degrees claims to be 4G ready.

Paul Brislen, Telecommunications Users Association chief executive expressed his joy on the launch of 4G in New Zealand. He says, “I think it’s very good, it’s great to see the phone companies trying to one-up each other.” It will allow business to flourish through tablets and mobile phones, anywhere you are. “You want your sales force out on the street; you don’t want to have to wait to get back to the office.”
