We’re building our strongest ever network

Building a network you can depend on

We're committed to building our strongest ever network, indoors and out. In fact, we've been building our network year after year since making the first mobile call in the UK way back in 1985 – and staying at the forefront of innovation.

We’re investing over £1 billion in both our fixed and mobile network, ensuring it’s fit for the future and suitable for the increasing demands of people, businesses and the everyday services people rely on up and down the country.

What makes ours a great network?

Performance you can rely on

We carry over 73 million calls a day on our network. But whether you need more data to stream your favourite movies or just want a better connection to make a call, we’re committed to giving you the best possible service. We're also bringing more coverage to over 100 rural communities this year with our Rural Open Sure Signal programme.

Vodafone is:

  • Unbeatable at connecting your calls.
  • Unbeatable at keeping your calls connected.
  • Providing unbeatable 4G coverage, indoors and out.
  • Providing unbeatable 4G coverage in London.
  • Improving call quality by offering crystal-clear HD calls on our network.

Note: Call connection was measured across 26 towns and cities vs. three main competitors in April 2014 by Vodafone. 4G coverage was assessed independently by LCC between January 2015 and March 2015. Top parity in 32 conurbations measured against all competitors with 4G coverage in that area. Signal thresholds for indoor and outdoor coverage were defined by Vodafone based on its international standards. Coverage may vary. HD Voice available on Vodafone to Vodafone calls on compatible handsets. Excludes calls on 2G and some bespoke 3G coverage systems.
