Trim in Co Meath has been named Vodafone Ireland’s 500th town to be connected to be connected to a 4G network. Customers in Trim will be able to get speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G on their mobile devices.

Technology director for Vodafone, Madalina Suceveanu, explained: “We take our commitment to providing the best network in the country to our customers really seriously… Urban and Rural, 4G is now available in six cities and 500 towns and villages. In a three-year period 4G will achieve the same level of coverage that it took 3G 12 years to achieve.“

Vodafone CEO Anne O’Leary added: “Previously where you lived determined your access to high quality networks but we’re changing this. We want to provide a service that anyone can use, creating massive potential to access the ever-growing number of digital services being developed for education, entertainment and business. We’ve seen our customers’ appetite for data grow dramatically with six times the amount of data consumed this year compared to last year. Our customers are, more than ever before, sharing pictures on Instagram, listening to music on Spotify and enjoying videos on popular apps like Netflix and YouTube.”

In a statement, the company said it expects work on upgrading its 3G and 4G networks to be completed by the autumn.
