Vodafone Prices LTE
Vodafone is the first operator in Germany to set prices for LTE Zuhause ("LTE at Home") service, which will be available as a DSL replacement for broadband access in rural areas. Vodafone says it will cover 1,000 municipalities in the country by the end of this year. By March 2011, it plans to have covered 1,500 municipalities.

So how much will it cost? The reported figures are €69.99 (US$90) per month for 50-Mbit/s downlink speeds and a monthly data limit of 30 Gbytes; €49.99 ($64) per month for 21.6 Mbit/s downlink speeds and 15 Gbytes per month; and €39.99 ($51) for 7.2 Mbit/s and 10 Gbytes per month.
Presumably the downlink speeds are all "up to" network speeds. — Michelle Donegan, European Editor, Light Reading Mobile
