Rural coverage map details

3G Aerial – You are in Vodafone 3G coverage. A technician is required to install an aerial and setup your Rural Broadband service.

4G Aerial – You are in Vodafone 4G coverage. A technician is required to install an aerial and setup your 4G Rural Broadband service.

4G PnP – “4G Plug and Play” means you are within very good or excellent Vodafone 4G coverage. Just call Telesales on 0508 008 888 or visit your local Vodafone Retail store, to purchase a superfast 4G modem and just plug and play. No installation required.

4G Voice or 4G calling is also known as VoLTE, which allows calls to be made over Vodafone’s 4G network. To be able to make a call in one of these 4G only areas, you need to be on a VoLTE enabled plan and have a VoLTE enabled device that has been updated with the latest manufacturers’ software. Please see our online help for more information including eligible devices and indicative timings of when to expect a software update.

Coverage depends on where you are, and what device you are using. For example, to get 4G mobile speeds you need to be in a 4G area and have a 4G capable device. In addition to this, there are various 4G spectrums. The newest, 4G 700MHz, provides better coverage in rural locations and is more effective at penetrating walls and buildings. It requires a compatible phone or device.

Please note: The above map is indicative only and intended to provide general guidance on where our network and outdoor coverage is available. Coverage may vary depending on the type of  device used.
