    Default Vodafone 4G LTE

    Vodafone 4G has been switched on today, in a limited roll out to some 30000 customers. All customers will have access to the network by July from what I've read.

    There are a few posts on Whirlpool with people seeing 80Mbit down / 40Mbit up: http://www.speedtest.net/iphone/563305380.png

    Is anyone on MacTalk part of the lucky 30000, and what performance are you seeing on iPhone 5 and iPad 4th Generation in your area?

    Unfortunately whilst I have an iPhone 5 and an "eligible plan" (basically anything from the last 2 years or so) I wasn't one of the lucky 30000.

    Someone else has posted a speedtest with 100Mbit download from a Galaxy S4: http://www.speedtest.net/android/470197485.png
    That's pretty amazing.

    I was provisioned for LTE today (well, maybe yesterday based on the announcement, but I only noticed it today). Gee it's fast!!
    It makes the iPhone 5 feel a lot faster as apps load the data they need almost instantly (so you see less 'blank' screens or spinning wheels.
