Vodafone 4G+ is also known as LTE-Advanced, CAT6, and Carrier Aggregation. 4G+ simply combines different 4G frequencies into a single connection to 4G+ capable devices. This theoretically offers double the speed of a single 4G connection and gives the end user a remarkable boost in speed.
Vodafone 4G and 4G+ is automatically activated for all Vodafone customers with a 4G/4G+ enabled Device. Simply make sure that you have a 4G enabled or 4G+ Smart Device and that the correct network settings are selected on your device. In addition, it is always best to have the latest software for your device to ensure compatibility. To find out how to enable 4G on your device, please visit http://www.vodafone.qa/en/4g/support

For 4G on average, the speed you can expect to receive is between 15-20 Mbps and for 4G+ on average, the speed you can expect is 30-40 Mbps depending on the coverage in your area and how close you are to a cell tower. It is not unusual to achieve speeds higher than this in areas with good coverage. 4G+ will only enable higher download speeds, upload will not be affected It is important to note, that these are the speeds you will receive in outdoor areas. As different buildings are made of different materials, we cannot guarantee the same results indoors.
