4G Extended

Do I need to make any Settings changes on my iPhoneX to gain access to Vodafone's 4G Extended network?  There are no options to select 4G LTE on my iPhoneX, even though my phone does support this (700MHz).  Or do Vodafone need to grant me access first?

4G Extended is just LTE on the L700 Band. If you already have access to LTE (IE you can use LTE in other areas fine) then you don't need to do anything else. Your phone will be able to use L700 in an area where it is deployed..

Thanks for the quick response, sebastionbd.

Problem I have is that Vodafone’s normal 4G coverage excludes my house. Don’t know why but it does.

Looking at the coverage map, 4G Extended ((LTE) does cover my house. But how do I access it if there is no option on my iPhoneX?

I have VERY poor reception with 4G which is why I’m interested in the LTE option. But don’t know how to access it.

You don’t need to do anything special. As long as your handset is set to 4G you will automatically attach if you are in coverage.

You can check in Settings > Mobile Data > Mobile Data Options > Voice & Data
