Vodafone customers across Wexford are now enjoying superfast 4G speeds.

The company has confirmed that the roll out of its 4G network to towns in the South East is complete; with Wexford reaching 94 per cent of the population across the county.

Vodafone CEO Anne O'Leary said: 'Previously where you lived determined your access to high quality networks but we're changing this. With 90 per cent population coverage across the country Vodafone 4G is now available in over 500 towns and villages nationwide. We want to provide a service that anyone can use, creating massive potential to access the ever-growing number of digital services being developed for education, entertainment and business. In a three year period 4G will achieve the same level of coverage that it took 3G twelve years to achieve, giving our customers the widest coverage of any network and connecting them like never before.'

Vodafone South East Area Manager, Debbie Power, added, 'At Vodafone, we're delighted that the upgrade across the South East is now complete. We've seen our customers' appetite for data grow dramatically in recent years. Our customers across Wexford are sharing more pictures on Instagram, listening to music on Spotify and enjoying videos on popular apps like Netflix and YouTube more than ever before.'

Griffin Hotels Group, General Manager, David Byrne said: 'High speed mobile connectivity is essential to local businesses in particular the hospitality industry. In using Vodafone's 4G network our productivity has increased; providing us the option to host meetings on the go, transfer large files and use video conferencing which allows us to communicate more efficiently.'

Along with faster data speeds, the new technology in the Vodafone network provides a much better call quality and level of reliability. To enjoy the benefits of the 4G network customers will need a 4G enabled handset. In tandem with its 4G roll-out, Vodafone is modernising its existing network, providing customers with the best possible voice call quality and data services to all areas with existing voice services. Over 97 per cent of the population can now avail of crystal clear conversation through High Definition Voice coverage, a service which is only available on Vodafone.
