iPad 4 owners in South Africa will finally be able to access Vodacom’s Long Term Evolution (LTE) network with the tablet PC, Vodacom has confirmed.

This is thanks to carrier bundle updates that were pushed out along with the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 7.

iOS 7 became available on Wednesday, 18 September 2013.

It’s interesting to note that Apple only lists Vodacom’s LTE network as supported by the iPad, even though MTN operates in the same band (LTE 3, 1,800MHz).

Band 1 (2,100MHz), in which Cell C is trialling LTE, is also supported by the iPad 4, but Cell C is not listed as a supported network.

This is despite the fact that Apple lists MTN, Cell C, and Vodacom as supported LTE networks for iPhone 5.
