Vodafone India on Monday announced it will launch its 4G services in Mumbai by December.
“We are the leading service provider in Mumbai, and our customers have a lot to look forward to. We are excited to launch our new 4G services in the superior 1800MHz band in Mumbai,” Ishmeet Singh, business head-Mumbai, Vodafone India, said in a statement.
“Having launched 4G services in several countries, Vodafone has the requisite expertise and experience to ensure that its 4G service in Mumbai will be best in class,” he added.
The company said it has already rolled out over 1,000 sites in the past six months and invested over Rs. 500 crores in Mumbai. Vodafone India has partnered with leading global technology infrastructure service providers for the network rollout.
Mumbai, with around 30 percent of data revenues, is one of the top data markets for Vodafone in India, the statement said.
“To further strengthen this position, Vodafone is investing heavily in high capacity fibre or backhaul to significantly increase internet connectivity, which will benefit all its data subscribers,” it added.
Vodafone India last week said it will launch 4G services in Kerala by the end of December this year. Important centres, including Kochi, Trivandrum and Kozhikode, would be a part of the first wave of 4G rollout, which would be launched across the circle in a phased manner, Vodafone said in a statement. Testing of 4G services has commenced successfully, it added.
“Vodafone India has partnered with leading global technology infrastructure service providers for the network rollout… With some of the latest technological developments on the anvil, Vodafone is building robust and resilient network architecture with a strong backup to support the volumes and need for speed from customers,” the statement said.
