Using blade systems to cut costs and sharpen efficiencies

Vodafone Germany has done a deal with The Cloud to offer its subscribers access to their wireless Lans across the country.

The Cloud will have 1,000 hotspots in Germany ready for Vodafone customers by July and plans to have 10,000 up and running within four years. The service is only available to Vodafone's German subscribers.

The service is designed to complement 3G coverage which is available in 700 German towns and cities. The wireless networks are at places like airports, bars, cafes and train stations. Vodafone customers who fancy a bit of sit down will be able to get online using the networks and pay for them through their mobile phone bill.

Vodafone has 27 million customers in Germany.®
