Announcing this new phase of 4G rollout, Sunil Sood, MD, and CEO, Vodafone India said, “We are actively working to expand 4G coverage in our circles across the country to offer our hundreds of million customers world-class data experience. We have enhanced our 4G roll out plans following the spectrum auction in which we emerged as the biggest winners.

“Utilizing this spectrum won, we will make available Vodafone SuperNet 4G services nationwide in 2400 towns and across 8 additional circles by the end of this fiscal instead of 1000 towns as announced earlier. Our investments in creating a modern and scalable network and partnering with leading global technology infrastructure service providers are enabling aggressive network rollout in terms of pace and scale of deployment.”

Besides this announcement, Vodafone also welcomed the Government’s move of demonetization which it considers is a move towards a cashless economy. Vodafone India has an app called ‘Vodafone M-Pesa’ which offers digital payment solutions to users.

“Vodafone India welcomes the Government’s bold step to accelerate India’s progress into a less cash economy. We reiterate our commitment to actualize the government’s vision through Vodafone M-Pesa that leverages the reach of mobile technology to enable financial inclusion and offers the convenience of a digital wallet for easy transactions,” said Suresh Sethi, Business Head, M-Pesa, Vodafone India.

E-wallet services like Paytm and Freecharge have witnessed an overwhelming surge in traffic after the Prime Minister’s announcement of banning Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes.
