Vodafone boasts fastest 4G in Sydney and Melbourne

Beats Telstra and Optus convincingly in Ookla speedtests

Vodafone has the fastest 4G data speeds in Sydney and Melbourne, according to Ookla speedtests done by thousands of Samsung and HTC smartphone users in the first week of July.

Ookla is a global leader in broadband testing, network diagnostic applications and data.

Vodafone customers averaged a download speed of 48Mbps across parts of Sydney, ahead of Telstra and Optus, both of which had an average download speed of 26Mbps.

Similarly, in Melbourne, Vodafone ended up well ahead of the competition, with an average data speed of 41Mbps, compared to Telstra with an average of 30Mbps and Optus (23Mbps).

“We only launched our brand-new 4G network last month so customers can expect our coverage to grow, " Vodafone chief marketing officer, Kim Clarke, said. "in fact by the end of 2013 we plan to triple the number of network sites from launch. Our network is custom built for fast data speeds and Vodafone has always had a reputation for offering competitive pricing.”

The Sydney and Melbourne Speedtest results reflect seven-day average results gathered on the week commencing July 1 using the Ookla Speedtest app. Reference data was pulled from 2933 speedtests on Android devices connected to Vodafone 4G.
