Vodafone customers will create a custom coverage map with real mobile Internet speeds

24. March 2011

Vodafone, in conjunction with the server DSL.cz, presents an application allowing customers to create their own coverage map showing real mobile connection speeds. The application is designed for phones running Android. Vodafone is currently the leader among Czech operators in 3G coverage. "The coverage map is created thanks to an authentic measurement from our customers, offering truly transparent information about mobile Internet speed and excludes any data for any other purpose," said Eva Štípková, Senior Manager of Interactive and Direct Marketing at Vodafone.

Customers can find the custom coverage map at www.vodafone.cz/internet/rychlost.

If customers want to measure the speed for themselves at the point where they are and share it with others, it takes just a few simple steps.

In your smartphone running Android, you should first download and install the application DSL.cz, which is available for free on the Android Market. You can then run the application and press Start in the place where you want to measure the speed of mobile Internet. Measuring only takes a few seconds and data with a specific location and speed will be transferred to the web interface. Users can easily share the measured results on Facebook and Twitter, where they are labeled with the hashtag #vodafonerychlost. The application runs on Google Maps technology.

Vodafone is now furthest in 3G coverage out of all operators in the Czech Republic. Currently, the high-speed mobile Internet from Vodafone can be used by almost 45% of the population and, by the end of summer, this percentage will reach 60%.

The latest additions to 3G coverage are, for example: Český Brod, Český Těšín and Orlová.
