How can they sell device without band 41. What’s the point , when a customer can not utilize the network to its fullest. Band 3 is totally congested. It will be a sub standard data experience .

Voda should have thought about it .

I guess as they have decided to pack bags & exit India . They are in stock clearance mood & hence are no more concerned about their brand value in India.
