Vodafone: promised to launch Australia's fastest 4G network

When it is launched in June, Mr Morrow said the company's 4G network would be one of the fastest.
"We will ... at least for a period of time, be the fastest 4G network available in Australia," he said.
He said Vodafone staff were trialling the 4G network now and that when it launched it would be available in major metropolitan centres of Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, Wollongong, Newcastle and the Gold Coast. Speeds of up to 150 megabits per second would be possible on 4G in theory, but speeds much lower are likely, considering mobile towers share data between users. Speeds also depend on a user's distance from a base station.
"[The] five capital cities will be our focus," Mr Morrow said of 4G. "Each one will have a slightly different level of penetration within it in that first phase. [There will be] 1000 sites nationwide by the end of the year."
