The VLR of idea cellular goes above 100% due to international roamers and non idea national roamers roaming on Idea cellular network. Hope that clears your queries.


How can the VLR percentage be more than 100%? Kindly explain Tarun.


it is actually the ratio of no. of subs using an operator’s tower to the total number of subs. above 100% is possible if they allow other operator subscribers to use their towers


Okay! Like in case of ICRA! Got it..thanks 🙂
