Vodafone Idea announced it will be refarming 3G spectrum to 4G across all sites in the Delhi and NCR region in order to enhance the 4G network capacity.
Vodafone Idea said this development includes the deployment of 5 MHz of 2100 MHz spectrum band. Vi customers in Delhi will receive higher download and upload speeds apart from better indoor coverage.
Over the past year, VIL has done one of the largest AI-powered ma-MIMO deployments in India with 12,000+ installations and the world’s largest DSR deployment across key markets doubling capacities and substantially increasing speeds despite higher usage in recent times.
The existing 4G infrastructure, that will be further strengthened with the migration of 3G spectrum to 4G, will give Vi GIGAnet 4G customers in Delhi the advantages of being on a network that offers wider coverage, network quality as well as stronger traffic carriage capacity.
Vi delivered the fastest 4G download and upload speeds compared to all other operators across 40 locations in India- including Delhi, for the July to September 2020 period, says a report from Ookla.
Vodafone Idea has over 2400 ma-MIMO installations in Delhi & NCR which is by far the highest by any operator in the region. Vodafone Idea has also deployed 2100+ small cells in Delhi & NCR for improving experience in congested areas within the city such as Govindpuri, Gandhi Nagar, Lakshmi Nagar, etc.
“All network augmentation initiatives have been undertaken to offer our customers an enhanced 4G data experience and to complement their data demand,” Arvinder Singh Sachdev, operations director – Delhi & NCR, Punjab, Haryana, HP, J&K, Ladakh, Vodafone Idea said.
