Vodafone have been first “off the blocks” to fire-up its 4G network and aim to launch 4G across Ireland around June 2013. Meanwhile, Pat Rabbitte became the first person in Ireland to use a 4G phone and a 4G mobile network.
4G will offer Irish consumers download speeds up to five times faster than offered on 3G and upload speeds of two times faster. Over the next few years, 4G Advanced ( LTE-Advanced ) will offer download speeds of ten times that of 3G.
An introductory video of the 4G services Vodafone Ireland will be offering its customers can be seen above.
