Vodafone Spending £900m to Prepare for "Late Summer" 4G Launch

By Gary Cutlack on at

Vodafone has once again used the vague term "late summer" to describe when it'll be launching its 4G network in the UK, as part of an announcement about its future infrastructure spending plans.

Vodafone's done the maths and claims it's now spending around £2.5m every day on upgrading its mobile and fixed systems to cope with future data demands, which it says is some 50 per cent more than it usually spends on its fiddling with its infrastructure in any given year.

The move will ensure Vodafone will be able to meet its commitment to provide indoor coverage to 98 per cent of the population by 2015.
