According to ET, it will launch its 4G services in Bengaluru on February 11th, Thursday. The company already said that testing has commenced successfully and it has started rolling out 4G-Ready SIMs in these circles.
Sunil Sood – Managing Director and CEO of Vodafone India will be present at the Mumbai launch event. It will be based on 1800MHz FDD-LTE band 3, which the company acquired last year. The company had promised to roll out 4G services in Mumbai and Bengaluru by March 2016 in the first phase. We will have to wait for the company to announce its plans for the second phase of the roll out.
“With this, Vodafone 4G services will be present in 5 circles of Kerala, Karnataka, Mumbai, Delhi & NCR and Kolkata, which today contribute to 30% of industry revenues and close to 50% of Vodafone India data revenues,” said the company at the 4G launch event in Delhi last week.
