India’s second-largest telecom network company Vodafone India has rolled out its Super VoLTE services in India’s largest state. Kicking off the roll-out, Vodafone Idea selected the capital city Jaipur and another largest city Jodhpur for expanding its 4G VoLTE services in the north-west of the country.
Probably due to the ongoing tariff war, Vodafone India left its expansion plans. However, it surprised everyone by announcing the 4G VoLTE services in inhospitable Thar Desert area. With 4G VoLTE, the subscribers of Jaipur and Jodhpur will experience HD quality voice calls and super-fast mobile internet.
Vodafone Super VoLTE - A Step Further:
As per the report, the Vodafone India will not charge any extra tariff for the provision of Super VoLTE services. The customers should upgrade their handsets to enjoy the 4G VoLTE facility seamlessly. Henceforth, the subscribers don’t need to worry about the call drops and mobile data.
Launching the Vodafone 4G VoLTE services, Mr Amit Bedi, Business Head – Rajasthan, Vodafone India, said, “Vodafone VoLTE is a step further towards enhancing customer experience and enabling our customers in Rajasthan to explore newer possibilities with their smart devices”.
After its roll-out of 4G VoLTE services in Maharashtra & Goa Telecom circles, Vodafone India is aiming to widen VoLTE coverage throughout the country. For the unaware, the Indian subsidiary of UK-based Vodafone Group has initiated the 4G VoLTE services in 5 telecom circles.
Currently, Vodafone 4G VoLTE services are active in Delhi & NCR, Gujarat, Maharashtra (Pune, Nasik, Nagpur, Vasai, and Goa), Mumbai, and Rajasthan (Jaipur & Jodhpur) telecom circles.
What’s Next for Vodafone India?
Incidentally, Vodafone India is the first GSM operator to launch 4G VoLTE services in the state of Rajasthan. No doubt, the ambitious plans of the company has to be appreciated. However, India’s second-largest telecom company is limiting the VoLTE services to certain cities in the telecom circle instead of expanding the length and breadth of the telecom circle.
For example, one can find Vodafone 4G VoLTE services in select parts of Mumbai, Pune and Goa. Moreover, the telecom giant should add more VoLTE supported handsets to its list. Unless the good coverage and a good number of handsets are there, one can’t take advantage of its investment. The telecom operator should consider and make it happen at least in a phased manner.
