Vodafone Idea Limited (VIL) is planning to invest Rs 200 billion in network investments over the next 15 months.

According to VIL officials, the company has planned a total capex of Rs 270 billion for financial year 2019 and financial year 2020 combined. Out of that, approximately Rs 70 billion has been spent during the first nine months. However, the capex guidance of Rs 270 billion does not include capacity that will be created by reusing equipment from the synergy of operations between Vodafone and Idea, which is estimated to be valued at around Rs 62 billion.
