Vodafone Idea has further enhanced network capacity in the Delhi NCR circle by deploying 900 MHz spectrum band on 2,300 4G sites.
These recent network augmentation efforts are being undertaken to support the growing data demand during the national lockdown due to Covid pandemic. With this, Vodafone Idea is well equipped to handle the increase in demand from customers who are confined within their homes, heavily dependent on network connectivity to work, study, access essential services online, stay informed and entertained.
Deployment of 900 MHz on 2,300 sites will help facilitate better indoor network experience, besides enhancing data speeds for Vodafone Idea customers in Delhi NCR. Earlier, the operator had announced the deployment of over 2,000 ma-MIMO installations in Delhi & NCR which is by far the highest by any operator in the region. Vodafone Idea has also deployed over 2,100 small cells in Delhi NCR for improving experience in congested areas within the city such as Govindpuri, Gandhi Nagar, Lakshmi Nagar etc.
The network upgradation resulting in better customer experience has been validated by leading agencies such as Ookla and OpenSignal.
Ookla has re-verified Vodafone 4G speed to be the fastest in Delhi, for the third consecutive quarter (January to March 2020).
OpenSignal’s latest biannual network experience reports highest download and upload speed for Vodafone Idea in Delhi. Vodafone Idea also scores highest in video experience on 4G in Delhi, as per the OpenSignal report of April ‘20.
