Vodafone claims double speed on mobile broadband

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The mobile broadband provider Vodafone has announced that it will be increasing its connection speeds up to 14.1 Mbps, making it the fastest mobile broadband in the UK.

Nevertheless, as ever this headline connection speed is unlikely to be achieved by any Vodafone mobile broadband subscriber, for who the average speed is likely to be between 1 Mbps and 4 Mbps, although for some Vodafone users who are located in cities and other built up areas, there is the possibility of achieving a connection speed of around 10.8 Mbps.

Certain areas will be benefiting from the speed upgrade first all, including London, Liverpool and Birmingham, although the firm says that the upgrade is expected to be rolled out across the Vodafone mobile broadband network.

  1. In Tokyo now one can get 40Mbps mobile broadband… so this ‘ground-breaking’ development is still only 1/4 of what is currently possible elsewhere.

  2. The whole exercise of increasing broadband speed is seriously flawed, as all ISP’s have a limited fair usage policy, even those ISPs who claim to give unlimited download still state a fair usage policy is in place. Hence by increasing the download speed the faster you reach your limit, before you either have restrictions placed on you and at worse loose your contract.

    Until such time as this problem is addressed, the push to watch TV via Broadband will only hasten the problems occurrence.
