Vodafone stops in the Netherlands with sales privézendmasten – update




Vodafone will stop selling privézendmasten to individuals. It has informed the provider. The so-called femtocells only work on 3G and now 4G is no longer logical same or better coverage would provide.

The femtocells Vodafone Signal Plus called Plug & Play, had since 2012 in sales and now the provider will no longer deliver, says Telecompaper. The provider confirms the sale stopper from Tweakers. The femtocells can improve indoor coverage for people at home see that the signal drops. Signal Plus only works on 3G, while many customers have come to sit on 4g.

Vodafone does not come with a 4G version of the femtocells. Refers instead the provider to the introduction of calling over 4G, which was soon to follow. What is the connection between these two cases is not clear. In theory, a better range than 4g 3g. The 3G network was at the time only by the relatively high 2100MHz frequency that penetrates less in buildings than the 800MHz frequency of 900MHz of 4g and 2g. The current privézendmasten continue to operate in the coming years. How many were sold in total, Vodafone does not say.

Update, 18:09: Vodafone announced that a 4G femtocell customers double the money it would cost. “When you have a good coverage 4G network with good indoor coverage and the upcoming new phones are ready for VoLTE, a 4G femtocell would double its investment from which the customer views is probably little need of.”
