Vodafone UK has announced it has successfully tested Voice over LTE at its specialist laboratory in Newbury, England. This successful trial is amongst a number of innovative projects achieved by Vodafone and its partners this year.
This includes the deployment of Vodafone’s 2.6Ghz spectrum on a small cell system using Huawei’s Lampsite technology. This now gives employees and visitors to Huawei’s UK headquarters 4G data speeds of up to 82Mbps downlink and 42MBps uplink.

Our trial of VoLTE, less than a year after the launch of our 4G network, is the next major innovation, and is hugely important as we continue our work to build the UK’s best network,” said Fergal Kelly, CTO at Vodafone UK.
