Vodafone 4G speed test results

Vodafone and O2 switched on their 4G networks yesterday in London so, as I have a Vodafone 4G SIM, I decided to give it a spin on the pretty empty 4G network.

Armed with a 4G phone receiving a lovely 4G signal, it was a pretty safe bet I was going to be doing lots of speed tests to see how well it runs.


What makes this more interesting is the Vodafone network we were testing is running on the new 800/2600 spectrum which was purchased for around £900 million this year.

We first picked up the 4G signal at Heathrow Airport and received a speed of around 40Mbps. In central London things got even better with a peek speed of 66Mbps in Camden Town at lunchtime.

Average tests were around 50Mbps which is great for a 4G network and, sitting here in a hotel in Kensington right now, Vodafone is outperforming the EE network which is advertising it’s ‘double speed’ 4G.

Are you in an area with 4G that was switched on yesterday? Let us know your results in a comment below..

    What’s more interesting is the rate at which your battery dropped. If this is what 4G is going to do to my HTC one on 3,then I may have to dampen my excitement a little.

    Still, very impressive speeds.

    Thanks for the article.
