Vodafone has today revealed that they are now serving 500,000 customers with 4G connectivity, a number which has been revealed just six months after they launched their 4G service in the UK.

The carrier also revealed that 4G customers used 300TB of data during December 2013, and that these customers are accessing twice as much data than those using 3G on average.

Vodafone says that because of this, more of its 3G customers should move to 4G in the new future, especially as coverage becomes more widespread in the UK.

Jeroen Hoencamp, CEO at Vodafone UK, said that “It’s particularly exciting to see how the nation is embracing 4G in their everyday lives, now people in more towns and districts can enjoy Vodafone ultrafast 4G and get closer to the action with our great entertainment packages.”

At first Vodafone launched its 4G network only in London, but now the service is available across 36 per cent of the UK population, with 115 towns and cities grabbing availability, including Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham.

Vodafone also says that 96 per cent of the UK population will be covered with 4G by 2015, making use of its 800MHz spectrum.
