Their 3g network has turned to sh*t in Maharashtra. Most of the time during day, it can’t even provide half decent speeds. Many of their customers have moved to other operators. Too late imo

2100 band have less device ecosystem, it will take time because most of the existing devices have only 850, 1800 and 2300 band only due to Jio

Yes. Band 1 LTE support is present only in certain handsets. Most of the 4G handsets from Samsung, Motorola, Lenovo, Xiomi, HTC, which have been launched in the recent few months, have Band 1 FDD-LTE support. Handsets from Panasonic, Lava, Micromax, Intex, etc don’t support. Hopefully even these manufacturers will now start launching handsets with support for Bands 1/3/5/40/41. These are the five Bands that will be used for 4G services by different operators in different regions.

Some thing is wrong with the post. Majority of 4G mobiles support only Band 3 , 5, 40 . Then how come vodafone launch 4G on 2100?

Them launching it doesn’t mean you gonna get the signal. Vodafone has lost the 4G race and will lose customers to Airtel Jio and Rcom in coming years.
