Vodafone Will Launch 3G Services By March End

India’s 2nd largest GSM Mobile Service operator Vodafone Essar which acquired 3G spectrum in 10 circles – Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh (E) and West Bengal today said that it will roll-out 3G Mobile and Data services in a phased manner by the end of March 2011.

According to the statement by Vodafone, The operator will launch 3G Mobile and Data services in end of this fiscal year (end of March 2011).

“We have a 3G-ready network, currently in optimisation which we will be launching very quickly. Our approach is to give our customers a world class experience, we will launch 3G service a city-wise basis and not pan-India or circle-wise. Presently, trials of 3G service are on and the service is expected to be launched in a phased manner by March” said  Naveen Chopra, Vodafone Essar Director (Enterprise and Carrier Business).

  • abhijith February 25, 2011 10:34 pm

    Only BSNL is better giving useful things good gprs speed,roaming connectivity, cell info, free sms in roaming, unique tariff in roaming and home network (incoming in sec pulse as well as 49p in minute plan),free missed call alert . only minus point in bsnl is congested network.. once network hang then nearly one week take to become normal mode . useless CC also. OTHERWISE CUSTOMER FRIENDLY NETWORK…

    Its been years now i havent seen area info. first i used to get area info while travelling when i went from one area to another but now only promo messages.

    This is my experience being in Mumbai. Get your handset settings checked for area info or better still disable the option once you find it and ask people around about the area you are in!! Just kidding!

    U will find it in cell info display. But now operators are advertising their packs. Only BSNL is displaying cell info as per my exp wid every operator. I luvd cell info not advt.

    yes only BSNL is displaying cell info. i dont like to see ads which i am never going to subscribe. i would love to see only area info.

    Can anyone tell me how to get only area info messages? i always get ads when i activate cell info display in vodafone but i want only area info messages.

    If they have a promo message, they’ll show promo. Else it automatically displays area info by default. There is no choice given for that.

  • Abhijit February 23, 2011 11:12 pm

    Almost 3months over of docomo 3G launching still there 3G nw not available at Ambernath, Badlapur, karjat- khopoli area of Maharashtra circle. So Vodafone, Idea 3G arrival in above towns is far away. ONLY BSNL 3G is present. So BSNL is BEST.

  • Abhijit February 23, 2011 11:04 pm

    why Airtel delaying their 3G launch in Mumbai circle if there network is live from last 3 mnths?

  • Pajat February 23, 2011 10:52 pm

    I am hoping that Vodafone fixes the no-network problem at my home, when they start 3G in Chennai. If not, then I am MNP shifting for sure (preferably to Aircel, since it has 3G in Chennai, definitely not Airtel).

    I have complained to Vodafone several times the past 2 years, they simply don’t care. I have been just waiting to keep my number. Hopefully MNP will stabilize soon, when I have to shift.
