Vodafone to share unused 4G spectrum to extend mobile broadband in rural areas

In a UK industry first, Vodafone is giving rural communities a boost by sharing some of its 4G spectrum with StrattoOpencell to offer high-speed mobile broadband in remote areas without fibre connectivity.

StrattoOpencell is part of the Digital Colony UK Infrastructure Platform (soon to be The Freshwave Group).

StrattoOpencell will use Vodafone's 2600MHz frequency spectrum to offer mobile data speeds of up to 120Mbps to consumers and businesses without access to fixed fibre broadband. Vodafone will continue to use the 2600MHz spectrum to provide greater mobile capacity for customers in busy areas such as stadiums and city centres.

Vodafone is promoting efficient use of spectrum under its three-year agreement with StrattoOpencell. This is possible for the first time following Ofcom's decision in July 2019 to allow mobile operators to share spectrum. StrattoOpencell will initially use the spectrum to provide broadband services to all users at a holiday site in Devon through the deployment of 4G outdoor small cells.

Today's agreement supports Vodafone's strategy of using new and innovative ways to extend fast and reliable mobile services to those living, working or travelling in remote areas, whilst minimising the impact on the local environment. Other examples of this strategy include installing 5G on an existing TV and radio transmission tower on the Isles of Scilly to give customers instant access to vital online services. Vodafone has also erected mini mobile masts in Cornwall and transformed old beachfront phone boxes with the latest 4G technology.
