Telecom operator Vodafone India has rolled out its 3G services on its own network in Rajasthan and will complete the roll out on its own network across the state by next month. The company has already built over 1,100 cell sites across Rajasthan and will continue to expand in a phased manner, a statement said.
Vodafone has been providing 3G services to its customers in Rajasthan through intra-circle roaming arrangements with other operators. So far, the company has rolled out its network in key areas like Jodhpur, Sikar, Alwar, Ajmer, Kota, Bikaner and Jaipur and will continue to expand its footprint covering the entire region in a phased manner.
Today, Vodafone has more than 11.7 million customers in Rajasthan.
Amit Bedi, Business Head-Rajasthan, Vodafone India, said, “Given the topography of Rajasthan, mobile phone users in the state have found mobile internet as an useful tool to connect, remain informed and source entertainment options. We have made significant investments in Rajasthan towards network expansion to facilitate a superior customer experience for our valued customers.”
As part of its strategy to democratize data, Vodafone India has been focusing on closer engagement with customers to use mobile internet, and educating current and potential users about how internet can add significant value to them.
