Vodafone customers can 4G with iPhone 5 and recent iPads




Customers with an iPhone 5 or iPad and a suitable recent Vodafone subscription given Wednesday to use the 4G network. Carrier update to use As a result, the first people with an iPhone or iPad to a Dutch 4G network.

Users browsing GoT report that they ingest the update on iOS devices with the GM version of iOS 7 below, users of iOS 6 get him hitherto, suggesting that the carrier update from Vodafone iOS 7 is required. If a recent iPhone 5 or iPad used is there not long to wait, Apple Releases iOS 7 presumably from Wednesday.

The carrier update allows users to access the 4G network Vodafone. This is only possible in some cities, where Vodafone has so far cover. The iPhone 5, iPad 4 and iPad mini only on the 1800MHz band, which Vodafone limited commitment and mainly in cities. For places to be covered a larger area with fewer people or where Vodafone wants to create more indoor coverage uses the 800MHz band.

Vodafone is the first provider to 4g on iPhone and iPad support. Vodafone Red and Red Essential subscribers have the provider a 4G download speeds of 30Mbit / s and an upload of 15Mbit / s, while the Red Super subscription rates provides of 50Mbit / s respectively and 25Mbit / s.’s iOS devices also support for frequencies of T-Mobile and KPN, but providers have no approval from Apple iPhones and iPads to allow on their 4G network. KPN uses the 1800MHz band so far hardly.

If an iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c going to buy, the problem of limited coverage not. These devices support all frequencies used in the Netherlands for 4g. When T-Mobile and KPN possibly a carrier update may release to activate 4g, is unclear.
