A very welcome announcement by Vodafone that it will extend its 3G network from 63% of NZ to 97%.
3G gives people broadband speeds of up to 7.6Mb/s.
The next technology step up is HSPA (which I am trialling) which goes up to 28.8Mb/s.
Of interest is the next step after that, and that Vodafone is looking to go with LTE instead of WiMax which has been much hyped. LTE will give speeds of over 100 Mb/s. But note these are connection speeds – very different to actual speeds.
