Company Overview

Vodafone Iceland is a mobile network operating in Iceland. The company was founded in 1998 as Íslandssími, and became Og Vodafone hf in 2003 following the merger of TAL, Halló-Frjáls Fjarskipti, and Íslandssími. The company was rebranded to Vodafone Iceland in 2006. Vodafone Iceland is operated by Syn hf., the new company name for Fjarskipti hf. following its acquisition of 365 Broadcast in 2018. Syn hf is a publicly traded company on the Nasdaq Iceland exchange.

The company has provided 2G GSM over 900 and 1800 MHz bands since April 1998. 3G UMTS services were launched in December 2007 and upgraded to HSPA+ in August 2013. The company entered into a 50-50 network sharing agreement with Nova in November 2013, to operate a shared mobile network under a newly established common infrastructure company.

Vodafone launched its 4G LTE network in July 2013 over B20 (800 MHz), adding B3 (1800 MHz) and B1 (2100 MHz) in conjunction with Nova, following spectrum acquisition over 2016 and 2017.

The company has announced intention to roll out NB-IoT in 2019-2020.
