Most of us take our network’s 4G speeds for granted. EE, for instance, is working hard in the UK to ensure you don’t end up with a ‘buffer face’ whilst waiting for your apps and maps to load. If you are on the Vodafone network, however, then you probably take the fast 4G speed for granted when on your home turf, but maybe you only receive slower speeds when you travel further away.

As one of the bigger networks, Vodafone really wants to ensure you can get the full use of your smartphone’s LTE radio whilst abroad and only recently they announced a stack of new countries where 4G roaming is supported. This week they have added a load more to that that list.

Arguably the most notable of the 17 new countries that make up the now 40-strong list are Japan, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.

You might already be aware that Vodafone allows customers to use their standard voice, text and data allowances abroad for the price of either £3 per day in Europe, or £5 per day in other countries. 4G roaming is now also supported in: Antigua & Barbuda, Cayman Islands, Croatia, Israel, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

So no matter where you end up on your travels, you should now never be without a high speed connection.
