Trim, Co Meath has become Vodafone Ireland’s 500th 4G town, which means that its superfast 4G speeds are now reaching 90pc of the Irish population.
4G means ten times faster speeds on smartphones to watch videos with no buffering, instant photo uploads and seamless music streaming, while business customers can download large emails and send files quicker than ever before.
Speaking at a reception attended by local business owners, community and public representatives in Trim, Vodafone CEO Anne O’Leary said: “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.”
