12:29 pm on 17 December 2008

Upgrades to Vodaphone cell sites will double the speeds on its mobile broadband 3G network, the company says.

Chief marketing officer Mark Rushworth said network speeds of up to 7.2 megabits per second have been achieved in recent trials in Auckland.

He said those speeds will be progressively rolled out to cell sites in other metropolitan cities.

The new speeds are available at Auckland International Airport and Waiheke Island, and more sites will become available over the next few months.
