Vodafone's goal is to create a Gigabit Society characterised by hyper-connection, very high speed, very low latency, ultra-dense coverage and very secure exchange of data. This will create new social and economic benefits through the Internet of Things (IoT) and new digital developments.
Our partnerships and investment in superior cable, fibre and mobile networks allow us to deliver better performance.
Our gigabit network incorporates 4G in all of our markets, 4G+ in 21 markets (offering even faster network speeds), and 5G which is already commercially available in nine European countries.
We also offer Narrowband IoT - the technology that is used to connect many sensors and which is a key enabler for connected devices - in 15 markets.
In broadband markets, an increasing proportion of our customers are upgrading to high-speed fibre to the home and cable, capable of speeds up to a gigabit (1,000 Mbps). Vodafone has the largest Next Generation Network in Europe passing 54 million households on our own network infrastructure and 124 million when wholesale agreements are included.
Our Tech2020 strategy has transformed our business over the past five years. We have the largest Gigabit networks in Europe and industry leading digitalisation and Cloudification programmes that have been achieved with improved customer KPIs despite the level of change.
