Last week, Vodafone launched their fourth generation phone network in London. Their 4G service, offering download speeds up to six times faster than 3G, will now roll out to around 98% of the UK over the next couple of years.
To help mark this very special occasion, Vodafone put in a call to sportsequip.co.uk requesting a senior football goal with a net in Vodafone’s colours (red and white) be delivered to central London at short notice. As a predominately internet based sports equipment supplier, we were only too happy to oblige…
The 4G event held in London’s Trafalgar Square, saw some footballing greats tackle a penalty speed test challenge. Arsenal legends Ian Wright and Tony Adams were joined by former Tottenham Hotspur players Ledley King and Les Ferdinand to determine just who has the fastest penalty kick.
Whilst the crowds (and Nelson) looked on whilst bathed in glorious sunshine, it was ultimately the former Gunners teammates who came out on top by recording the fastest average shots by the speed gun.
Vodafone’s 4G rollout celebration was undoubtedly a total success and everyone here at sportsequip.co.uk is delighted to have played a role in helping the event get up to maximum speed.
