Vodafone UK has announced that it now has sign up half a million customers to its LTE service, six months after its launch.
In the last few months, Vodafone has also started to expand its 4G coverage to a further 115 towns and districts across the UK.
LTE coverage is now available to 36% of the UK population. The rollout of 4G services is part of more than £900m Vodafone is spending on its network across the country this year.
That investment comes on top of the £802m that Vodafone spent acquiring the widest portfolio of mobile spectrum in last year's auction of new capacity by Ofcom. That portfolio includes the crucial low-frequency spectrum that means Vodafone's ultrafast 4G signal will travel further into buildings.
Vodafone is targeting indoor 4G coverage across 98% of the UK population by 2015.
