Kolkata with 25% of data revenues is one of the top data markets for Vodafone in India and is growing at more than 50% YoY. The company said in a statement that testing of 4G services has commenced successfully and it has tied up with global technology infrastructure service providers for the network roll-out. Besides, it has invested over Rs 960 million to modernize and upgrade existing 2G and 3G network.

Vodafone is investing into high capacity fibre/backhaul to increase the internet connectivity to the rest of the world. It is also planning to build robust and resilient network architecture with a strong backup to support the volumes and need for speed from customers.

Anand Sahai, Business Head–Kolkata and West Bengal, Vodafone India, said, “We will continue to pursue our customer centric strategy of continuing to meet their evolving needs for better and smarter connectivity for both voice and data. Having launched 4G services in several countries, Vodafone has the requisite expertise and experience to ensure that its service in Kolkata will be best in class.”

Vodafone has already rolled out over 250 sites and invested over Rs 960 million in Kolkata. It has also made investments in upgrading its own network plus modernizing the radio network and switching systems.

All these network upgradation to 4g by Vodafone is useless. No one is going to use their 4g unless they provide cheaper tariff than Airtel 4g or Jio in future. They are going to make huge loss after Jio launch.
