Vodafone UK has this week started introducing 4G to its network in the Stornoway area as part of its multi-billion UK network modernisation programme. 

According to the telecoms company, customers in the town area can now enjoy a much more reliable mobile data experience, faster data download and upload speeds as well as better video quality.

The arrival of 4G to Stornoway can also help local businesses improve productivity by enabling employees to work where they want to, when they want to.

In addition, upgrades to 3G will bring stronger voice coverage along with faster call connection times and great speech quality.

Rollout of 4G in rural areas, meanwhile, continues apace.

Vodafone has invested more than £2 billion in its network and services since 2014 and expects to spend another £2 billion on them over the next few years. In November 2016, P3 Connect, one of the world's leading independent mobile network testing companies, rated Vodafone the UK’s number one network for voice.

In a sign of its confidence in the strength of its network, Vodafone also offers a Network Satisfaction Guarantee giving new and upgrading Pay monthly customers 30-days to experience for themselves the quality of the network before they fully commit to Vodafone. Through its Network Satisfaction Guarantee, customers are also given a 250MB data bonus if they provide feedback on network performance.

Vodafone also continues to develop innovative approaches to the challenge of poor coverage in rural areas. The Vodafone Rural Open Sure Signal programme has brought 3G coverage to 84 rural communities across the UK over the last two years. The company is currently taking applications for Vodafone Community Indoor Sure Signal programme which provides reliable, indoor 3G mobile coverage and internet access to rural hubs such as independent or community run pubs and shops, village halls, scout huts, doctor’s surgeries or visitor centres.
