Vi (Vodafone Idea) has refarmed 3G spectrum to 4G across 11 cities in Gujarat, substantially enhancing GIGAnet 4G capacity.
Vi customers in Gujarat will benefit from higher download and upload speeds apart from better indoor coverage following the deployment of 5 MHz of 2100 MHz spectrum band in the circle.
The existing 4G infrastructure, ramped up with the migration of 3G spectrum to 4G, gives Vi GIGAnet 4G the triple advantages of wider coverage, network quality as well as stronger traffic carriage capacity in Gujarat.
Ookla has verified GIGAnet from Vi as the fastest 4G network in India, including Gujarat.
The third largest operator is doing the 3G to 4G spectrum refarming in Ahmedabad, Anand, Bhavnagar, Gandhidham, Gandhinagar, Jamnagar, Morbi Rajkot, Surat, Vadodara, Vapi.
“The network augmentation initiative enables customers to achieve better 4G experience to complement the data demand. Supplementing the existing 4G infrastructure with the expansion on 2100 MHz layer has brought about enhanced data speeds, besides a better indoor network experience for Vi customers in Gujarat.
“We have completed the 3G to 4G refarming exercise in eleven top cities in the state so far. Efforts are on to cover the rest of the state at an early date,” Rajendra Chourasia, operations director – Gujarat, Mumbai, Maharashtra & Goa, Vodafone Idea said.
