vodafone-logo.jpgVodafone have announced a massive investment of £900m in their mobile infrastructure ahead of the roll-out of their 4G network later this year, bolstering their services by creating what they’re calling a “seamless” network.

Aiming to bring together their fixed and mobile infrastructure, the aim is to allow users to switch between fixed and mobile, allowing customers and businesses to work from any location.

As part of this upgrade, Vodafone have already bought Cable & Wireless Worldwide for £1 billion back in 2012, giving Vodafone greater flexibility and consistency up and down the country when rolling out their super-fast 4G service after the summer.

“This investment is great news for customers and further evidence of our commitment to deliver our best ever network,” Vodafone UK chief executive Guy Laurence.

“We’re bringing together the best of mobile and fixed communications to help our business customers make their communications work for them. For consumers, it’s another important step towards the arrival of our ultra-fast 4G service later this year. It is also great news for the country. We’re investing in vital national infrastructure that can help play an important role in supporting growth in the wider economy.”
