Vodafone India, the country’s No 2 carrier, will launch 4G services in Mumbai by December 2015. While Vodafone has been investing in the development of the 4G services with enthusiasm, testing of 4G services has been successfully initiated. Vodafone India has partnered with leading global technology infrastructure service providers for the network roll-out.
Mumbai, with around 30% of data revenues, is one of the top data markets for Vodafone in India. To further strengthen this position, Vodafone is investing heavily in high capacity fibre/ backhaul to significantly increase internet connectivity, which will benefit all its data subscribers, the company said in a media statement Monday.
With some of the latest technological developments on the anvil, Vodafone is building a robust and resilient network architecture coupled with strong backup to support the expected volumes and speed requirements of its customers.
Announcing this development, Ishmeet Singh, Business Head–Mumbai, Vodafone India, said, “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 1800 MHz band for our customers in Mumbai. 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. We will continue to pursue our customer centric strategy in an endeavor to meet their evolving needs for better and smarter connectivity for both voice and data.”
