After Yoigo and Orange, it is now Vodafone who announces the next availability of its LTE network . It will do so from the month of June (they have not provided a specific day), at which time the iPhone 5 and the third and fourth generation iPads (and the mini) will be able to benefit from this communications network that significantly increases the download and upload speeds on the mobile network.
The first deployment of Vodafone’s LTE network will be in seven cities, of which only four have been confirmed: Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Valencia and Malaga . Our colleagues from Xataka Móvil will attend a press conference soon where the three missing cities will be revealed, and these are supposed to be a starting point to expand to the whole country in the future.
Now all that remains is to know the plans of the most powerful operator, Movistar, and the virtual operators who are amassing more and more customers: Pepephone, Tuenti Móvil and Simyo. Movistar has a bit difficult because it has to free the 1800 MHz frequency from activity before being able to offer LTE speeds on it (let’s remember that it’s that frequency that Apple products use to receive data on that mobile network), but we are left with the good news of having LTE on a good part of the operators in a few days.
