Vodafone UK has launched a ‘Sure Signal Premium’ service that’s capable of providing 3G coverage throughout a workplace, regardless of the outdoor coverage availability. Faster 4G service is due to become available in some areas from the summer.
The service, which Vodafone describes as the first enterprise-grade indoor mobile coverage solution of its kind in the UK, has been developed in partnership with NEC and SpiderCloud Wireless.
