Vodafone Launches 4G Services in Mumbai
After launching 4G services in NCR last week, Vodafone has today announced the roll-out of its high-speed 4G services in prominent business and residential corridors of Mumbai across the Western suburbs and South Mumbai in a phased manner. The roll-out will be complete by the end of next month as had been earlier revealed by Vodafone.
Vodafone has revealed that all existing customers can move to 4G plans at the same price as their existing 3G plans. The Vodafone 4G network in Mumbai is built on an 1800 MHz band and will enable Vodafone 4G customers to gain access to the service across a range of smart devices including Mobile Wi-Fi and dongles.
Speaking at the launch, Sunil Sood, Managing Director and CEO, Vodafone India said, “We are delighted to launch our high-speed 4G services in Mumbai for our customers to experience the most advanced wireless broadband experience available across the globe today. Vodafone’s global expertise and experience of launching 4G across 19 countries gives us a better understanding of this technology and need of the 4G customer. Initial response from customers who have experienced 4G services in Kerala, Karnataka, Kolkata, Delhi and NCR has been positive and encouraging. As a steadfast partner of Digital India, we remain focused on deploying multiple technologies – 2G, 3G or 4G for optimum use as each technology has its own vital role to play in servicing the myriad connectivity needs of consumers across the country. ”
