Vodafone Gives the OK to Download iOS 6.1 on iPhone 4S

Vodafone recently issued a warning to its iPhone 4S users that they should not be downloading and installing iOS 6.1 because there was a problem with connecting to the 3G network after the installation. Apparently the issues that were causing connectivity problems on those phones with the newest iOS have been sorted out. Vodafone has now taken back its warning, saying it is now safe to do so without having to worry about any problems.

"Apple has released a new version of its iPhone software that fixes the 3G performance issues that have been affecting users of the iPhone 4S who had installed iOS 6.1," Vodafone said in a statement on Tuesday. "Please download the latest version —iOS 6.1.1 —from Apple as soon as you can as this will deal with these issues."

This is good news for Vodafone iOS users who wanted to have the newest operating system. iOS 6.1 has been incredibly popular since it was released just two weeks ago. Industry analyst Onswipe released a report last week that showed that 22 percent of iDevice users had downloaded the OS just a week after it was released.

Still, it appears that problems have been persisting with a variety of different companies since iOS 6.1 was released. Some people have claimed they were having issues with excessive logging when they hooked up their iPhone to an Exchange server. iOS 6.1 was actually issued to solve a few problems that were caused by the previous release of iOS 6, which had caused some phones to have a problem stemming from their Wi-Fi connection. Despite that, some people have said they are still having the same Wi-Fi connectivity issues with iOS 6.1.

NT Easy Start Self-Service
FTTH is by far more challenging than xDSL due to its use of point-to-multipoint technology. This makes it harder for service providers to offer self-service solutions to the subscribers. Once an ONT is installed, it is not straightforward exactly where it is located in the shared PON covering a wide area and a large number of users. Therefore each and single ONT installation or replacement requires field dispatch to the subscriber home. ONT Easy Start is the solution to this challenge but also the means to increase customer experience.
