Vodafone India more than doubles 4G coverage target

Telecom network operator Vodafone India today said its 4G coverage will be expanded to reach 2,400 towns and 8 more circles by March 2017.

The earlier plan of Vodafone was to cover 1,000 towns. The recent spectrum auction assisted Vodafone India to expand its 4G coverage.

Vodafone India will include Assam & North East, Maharashtra & Goa, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu (including Chennai) and UP (West) for expanding its 4G network.

Vodafone SuperNet 4G services are already available across nine circles such as Mumbai, Delhi & NCR, Kolkata, Karnataka, Kerala, Haryana, Gujarat, UP (East) and West Bengal.

“We are working to expand 4G coverage in our circles across the country to offer world-class data experience. We have enhanced our 4G roll out plans following the spectrum auction in which we emerged as the biggest winners,” said Sunil Sood, MD and CEO, Vodafone India.

“Our investments in creating a modern and scalable network and partnering with leading global technology infrastructure service providers, is enabling aggressive network rollout in terms of pace and scale of deployment,” Sunil Sood added.
