It's interesting to see how Vodafone in Germany continues with their 3G rollout. Last year in May I went to their website and took a snapshot of their coverage map of south western Germany. As you can see on picture one, most areas are blue (GSM coverage) with some areas red (UMTS coverage). One year later (April 2006) I've taken another snapshot of their coverage map which is shown in the second picture. The red areas representing UMTS coverage have increased by quite a bit. Even small towns with less than 2000 people are now very well covered. Let's see how it looks like in a year from now.
