To stay abreast of the surge in data usage and demand amongst customers amidst the COVID -19 lockdown, Vodafone Idea has upgraded and enhanced capacity of over 1,170 sites in Haryana circle. The ongoing COVID -19 lockdown has led to citizens being confined to their homes, completely dependent on telecom networks to study, work, access essentials, source information and entertainment, thus necessitating this upgradation.

The most efficient 900 MHz spectrum band has been deployed on over 840 4G sites in the state. Vodafone Idea has also been continuously monitoring network to ensure optimum efficiency in urban and rural Haryana. Field engineer teams on the ground are working 24×7 to keep customers connected seamlessly

Deployment of 900 MHz on over 840 sites will help facilitate better indoor network experience, besides enhancing data speeds for Vodafone Idea customers in Haryana.

Some of the key cities covered under the latest technology/network upgradation are: Rohtak, Yamunanagar, Karnal, Rewari and surrounding towns.

Commenting on the development, Vishant Vora, chief technology officer, Vodafone Idea Limited (VIL), said, “At a national level, Vodafone Idea has recorded a year’s worth of traffic in just one week. We continue to augment capacity to accommodate the enormous quantum of growth in traffic post declaration of national lockdown. The longer people stay ‘in’, the busier the data highway will get. Vodafone Idea has also integrated networks across circles, leading to better capacity headroom, while best in line technology deployment has enhanced efficiency of spectrum utilization.”
