“LTE represents a step change in mobile capabilities. Thanks to faster speeds, we’re able to unlock the true potential of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices,” said Zunaid Dinath, Vodacom’s chief officer sales and distribution.
Vodacom has also increased the number of LTE devices on sale at Vodacom World in Midrand and selected Vodacom outlets across Gauteng.
The LTE service is currently only available to Vodacom contract customers and will be available to top-up and pre-paid customers in 2013.
“The LTE devices will automatically switch to the 3G network when LTE coverage is not available,” Vodacom said.
