Can someone from Vodafone please let me know if the the 4G rollout has been completed, or is it still underway>? Reason I ask is I get perfect 3G signal at my place but 4G is patchy, which leads me to believe the cellsite I'm getting my signal from hasn't been upgraded...and no, this isn't my phone as another phone in the house has the same weak signal (even going outside doesn't make any difference).

Just because you have great 3G coverage but patchy 4G coverage, doesnt mean 4G isnt rolled out on the tower you're connected to. Depending on the technology, terrain, obstacles, and antenna direction, 3G or 2G may travel to your location better than 4G does. And if the rollout on your tower is complete then that probably isn't going to change any time soon.

Oh true. For some reason I thought the 4G coverage was meant to mirror the 3G coverage, but I guess not.

4G still getting deployed on sites that are just 3G and adding new bands to sites that already have 4G for improved capacity and coverage

Thanks John, that's what I was thinking (hoping?) to hear.

Especially the difference with a site using 700MHZ LTE and 1800MHZ LTE.
