Vodafone in good in UPE..better than Airtel and chocked Jio

Rhishav (Kolkata)

Not the whole of U.P.
SS from Ballia reported same poor speeds on Vodafone as well.

SS(Shivang Singh)

Yes, in the recent days, speeds have tanked considerably on Vodafone as well being at most of 1 Mbps multiple times a day. However, you wouldn’t believe it but its is better than Jio. Airtel is worthless piece of junk here. Vodafone support acknowledged that the cell site is overloaded and i would require a new cell site at the location. Band 41 has not been deployed here yet but i think Lucknow has band 41.

Sunny | Lucknow

Nope, no band 41 deployed afaik.

Abhishek UPE

every operator is not good everywhere.. may be he is living in that area where tower is situated far away from his house.. but overall Vodafone is best in UPE that is what i have experienced while traveling

Nikhil Mumbai-Pune

Band 41 deployed?

Abhishek UPE

not yet.. still vodafone managed to provide decent speed on band 3.. 25 Mbps+ speed all day in rural areas and constant 8 Mbps during peak times in Lucknow whereas Jio is crawling like snail.. Volte is already deployed even in rural areas..

Nikhil Mumbai-Pune

Thank you!!!!! Your device? Vodafone users less in your circle? What about Idea?

Sunny | Lucknow

You must not be in a densely populated area to get those kinds of speeds. Otherwise it’s impossible to use Voda 4G during day time at least.

Sunny | Lucknow

Okay, I said that because earlier you usually mentioned locations near BBD. At most I’ve got 10 Mbps on Voda that too at late night. Funny thing their 3G sometimes performs better than 4G these days.

Abhishek UPE

yes..but i was in Gomtinagar while performing the above speed test.. as far as Vodafone 3g is concerned, quality is top notch.. not like Airtel’s third class platinum 3g (marketing gimmick)


Technically its called 200g. You are new with the term.
