Vodafone fails to offer full 3G service

Mobile phone network Vodafone has been reprimanded by Ofcom for failing to meet its 3G targets set in 2010.

Ofcom auctioned 3G spectrum to networks back in 2000, under the proviso that the successful applicants would roll services out to 80% of the population. This figure was then later increased to 90% in 2010.

However, Ofcom has revealed that while the likes of Three, O2 and EE have met this criteria, Vodafone has fallen short by 1.4%.

In the meantime, Vodafone customers are bearing the brunt of low signal in rural areas, on roads and in certain buildings.

However, Vodafone has announced that it will reach Ofcom’s target by setting up more masts around the country by the end of the year.
