Vodafone Idea has been integrating the networks of both the telcos over the last few months. Since the merger, Vodafone Idea’s 4G coverage has increased to cover 830 million population of India. 4G coverage has been expanded to cover 340 million additional population for Brand Vodafone and 230 million for Brand Idea, said Vodafone Idea in a press release.

According to Vishant Vora, Chief Technology Officer, Vodafone Idea Limited., “With the integration of two strong networks in many markets, Vodafone Idea is becoming a higher powered, super charged 4G network on the back of larger number of sites, deployment of future fit technologies and greater spectrum allocation. TurboNet truly defines the reinvented 4G network which promises to deliver wider coverage, increased capacity, turbo speeds and superior customer experience. Our unified network is being presented to customers of both brands under a single brand proposition – TurboNet 4G – in all the integrated markets in India. So whether you are a Vodafone or Idea customer, your network is now bigger, stronger and better.”

Additionally, Vodafone Idea confirmed that TurboNet 4G will be rolled out across the country over the next few months in a phased manner.

Vodafone Idea Network Integration Running at a Rapid Pace

Vodafone Idea’s network integration exercise is continuing at a rapid pace with 72% of districts in India already consolidated. To integrate and optimise the network across all the circles seamlessly, the company has setup war rooms at national and circle levels to monitor and manage the performance on a real time basic 24/7.

In the recent Trai speed test report, the regulator stated that Idea is the fastest 4G upload speed operator, but lost its place to BSNL in the 3G download speed department. Reliance Jio is still the fastest 4G operator in the country.

Furthermore, Vodafone Idea, which is currently the second largest telecom service provider in the country says that the customers can enjoy Live TV shows, latest movies and a variery of original content on Vodafone Play at trubo speeds. It will be interesting to see how this TurboNet 4G technology transforms into real world 4G speeds.

Now Jio’s speed is always less than 16 Mbps (2 MB/s). While Vodafone 4G speeds were above 20 Mbps & average of 23 Mbps while top speed went upto 35 Mbps. So this time I recharged Vodafone. gonna wait for 3 months, if Jio doesn’t improve, it’s time to Port out.
