Vodafone has followed in the footsteps of both Three and Tesco Mobile to offer inclusive roaming in select plans. Bundled with the UK mobile network's Red and Red Value packages, the addition of included roaming allows phone users to text, call and access online services without incurring extra charges.

The UK government has managed to reach an agreement with local operators to work on the issue of nationwide 'not-spots': areas restricting access to basic mobile functions due to weak signal coverage. EE, O2, Three and Vodafone will invest a guaranteed £5 billion to improve mobile infrastructure by 2017 with the aim to provide 90 per cent of the UK with both voice and text coverage.

Vodafone Australia has outlined its Windows Phone 8.1 update schedule for some notable Lumia smartphones, with many devices getting updated to Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 late this month or in January. The updates are planned for the Lumia 710, Lumia 735, Lumia 820, Lumia 925, and the Lumia 930 smartphones. The current status for these phones is that the carrier is "awaiting software for testing."

New legislation could be in the works to effectively force UK operators to offer roaming options for customers where signal is poor. The UK government continues to work with mobile carriers on a solution to address black spots and areas where signal is hard to come by. The plan is to offer said roaming support to make it possible to switch between networks to maintain service, something mobile operators previously rejected.

Vodafone has today announced the UK mobile operator will be packing more entertainment into Red 4G plans for a limited time. Between September 12 and November 3, customers who sign up to 4G with Vodafone will be able to enjoy Netflix for 6 months and Sky Sports Mobile or Spotify Premium at no extra cost. As well as the bundled entertainment options, Vodafone will offer unlimited 4G data for the first three months.

Mobile operators in the UK have rejected government proposals on setting up national roaming, according to the Financial Times. Earlier this year, operators were urged by officials to look into the possibility of sharing infrastructure in rural parts of the country, as well as locations where consumers seemingly loose signal coverage. While this would help prevent customers experiencing drop outs in connectivity, mobile operators didn't believe the plans to be viable.

We've been receiving word from Lumia 920 users that the Cyan update is now rolling out across various European markets including the UK, Italy and Spain. Users on Vodafone and O2 in the UK have mentioned that they were successfully able to install the update, making the Lumia 920 the second device in as many days to receive the Cyan update after both carriers initiated the OTA for the Lumia 1020 yesterday.
