Vodafone Fasterest Challenge

Vodafone is confident that it has the fastest 4G network in Australia. So confident that they are challenging you to take a speed test against their “Lightning Fast Man”. The terms are that you take on Lightning Fast Man – who will be using Vodafone 4G presumably – and at the end of your challenge you’re entered into a draw to win a Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB or a Samsung Note 3 32GB. There will be a draw every hour on the hour and a bonus draw at the end of the event. The events last from 7 to 12 hours – so your chance of going toe to toe with Lightning Fast Man looks very good.

This seems like a generous promotion from Vodafone, as the terms don’t state that you have to beat Lightning Fast Man, you just have to try for you to be eligible for a prize. From the video Vodafone is using Ookla Speedtest with a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Cat4 LTE. Most of the results in the video are around 50 Mbps – not bad for the Sydney CBD during the day.

If you’d like a very good chance to win a Galaxy S4 or Note 3, here are the event times in Sydney:

Vodafone Fasterest Challenge 2

If you live in Melbourne, there is only one more event at Queensbridge Square on Sunday 8 December from 10am to 7pm. More information on Vodafone’s Fasterest Challenge is on their website. An amusing video featuring Lighning Fast Man challenging Sydneysiders is here.

no Perth, WA? =( T_T


I got 96mbits in hoddle street with my Samsung Galaxy S4 and 144mbits on my note 3 with Vodafone in Richmond Church Street. Great speeds and more reliable network. I average out 70-130mbits in most parts of Melbourne areas i travel through.


Optus in Sydney CBD at 11am resulted in test of 55mbits on a RAZR M….

Happy Dog

Can we switch off their booster that’s probs near by?


Do the rules state how many reception drops are allowed?


Maybe you could add Syd/Mel or something to the title so the rest of the country don’t need to waste our time reading it?


My vodafone prepaid 4G using galaxy Note 3 speed at westryde sydney was 47mb/s while my optus 4G mobile broadband was 6mb/s. True vodafone is very fast.
