Vodafone switches on 4G in Tasmania: list of locations

See a list of locations in Tasmania that now have access to 4G via Vodafone's network.

Vodafone's 4G rollout continues and has now reached Tasmania. The company still offers its "Network Guarantee" allowing new customers to cancel their contracts during the first 30 days if they are not satisfied by the coverage.
The initial 4G sites are in West Moonah, Cambridge, New Norfolk, Warrane and Hobart Airport, with Hobart CBD, Bridgewater, Claremont, Howrah, Huonville, Kingston, Lauderdale, Richmond, Sandfly, Sorell, and Mt Faulkner to come online "in the coming months."
As we've explained before, the main advantage of 4G is that it can be significantly faster than 3G. The downside is that you can download a lot more - and might reach your quota faster.
Customers with 3G-only devices indirectly benefit from the rollout, according to the company.
"One of the little-discussed benefits of switching on 4G networks is that as customers with 4G devices automatically move over onto the 4G network, it means there is greater capacity on our 3G and 3G+ networks. So that means all of our customers notice the difference and are able to access faster data speeds," said Vodafone chief technology officer Benoit Hanssen.
The company is adding more than 100 4G sites around the country each month, Hanssen recently stated, adding that Vodafone had more than one million 4G customers.
