Vodafone speeds up New Norfolk
Vodafone chief technology officer Benoit Hanssen said customers in Tasmania now had greater choice when it came to choosing 4G networks, as his team prepared for an accelerated rollout in the coming months. “Vodafone’s 4G network continues to expand around the country and we are pleased to announce the launch of our fast, reliable 4G network in Tasmania,” Mr Hanssen said. “We have a long history in this state where our customer-care centre has been based for more 15 years. Late last year we also opened a second call centre in the Hobart CBD,” he said.
“This is a launch I am especially proud of as our excellent Tassie team call me regularly to ask when we’re going to switch it on! Following our very successful testing, I am pleased to report we are offering fast, reliable 4G coverage in West Moonah, Cambridge, New Norfolk, Warrane and Hobart Airport.”
The seond phase of the rollout will add further 4G sites in the Hobart CBD, Bridgewater, Claremont,
Howrah, Huonville, Kingston, Lauderdale, Richmond, Sandfly, Sorell and Mt Faulkner.
4G is the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications technology, succeeding 3G. Telstra customers have had access to 4G in New Norfolk for some time.
