Vodafone is boosting Turbo Internet in first three regions and offers a discount on LTE devices

10. December 2013

As of today, Vodafone is boosting its Turbo Internet with the LTE 900 MHz technology in areas around Litoměřice, the northern part of the Plzeň region and some areas in the Liberec region. Customers in these regions may now use fast mobile Internet through LTE 900 MHz in rural areas and through 3G in urban areas. Vodafone is at the same time announcing a CZK 2,000 discount on smartphones and tablets that support the LTE technology on 900 MHz.

“When we announced Turbo Internet at the end of October, we promised to introduce LTE 900 MHz coverage in the first areas of the Czech Republic in December of this year. Our objective was to launch LTE on the 900 MHz frequency on 64 transmitters. We keep our promises and can now confirm that LTE will be transmitted through nearly 300 base stations before the end of 2013,says Tanja Richter, Vodafone’s Vice-President for technologies. “We can also assure our customers that we will keep adding to our LTE 900 MHz coverage next year to further build up the strength of Turbo Internet. Our project to cover the Czech Republic with fast mobile Internet by the end of 2014 still holds true. Results of the frequency auction that were announced in late November will help us deliver our LTE plans in a more robust way. 

By December 17, 2013, Vodafone plans to roll out the technology in other locations, namely in Central Bohemia, the southern part of the Plzeň region and in North Bohemia. Another wave of coverage extension will happen by December 20, 2013. A complete list of covered areas is available at www.vodafone.cz/turbo.

About Turbo Internet

Turbo Internet is Vodafone’s fast mobile Internet service running on the 3G and LTE 900 MHz technologies. Turbo Internet is available to all customers who subscribe to any data service plan offered by Vodafone, have an LTE SIM card and a device supporting LTE 900 MHz, 3G and 2G. Data transfer speeds attainable in this network are comparable with the 3G (HSPA+) system and allow comfortable web surfing. During testing, the technology achieved a real speed of more than 15 Mbit/s.

Thanks to the CS FallBack function, the widespread LTE technology allows users to access data services as well as voice and SMS services. This means that LTE 900 MHz may be used not only in modems, tablets and notebooks but also in smartphones that support LTE on this frequency. The majority of new smart devices supports LTE on the 800, 900, 1800, 2100 and 2600 MHz frequencies as well as 2G and 3G, ensuring that the devices will be serviceable long into the future. Examples of suitable devices that are already available in Vodafone shops include smartphones Sony Xperia Z, Nokia 925, Samsung Express 2, Samsung Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung S4 mini; tablets Sony Xperia Tablet Z and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1; and the Turbo Internet USB modem (Vodafone K5150).
