However, Murali did not give any timeframe for the launch though. Vodafone Super VoLTE service is already live in Delhi & NCR, Gujarat, Haryana, Maharashtra and Goa, Mumbai and more recently it was expanded to Rajasthan. In Haryana and Rajasthan, Vodafone is the only GSM operator to offer VoLTE services.

Switching to VoLTE network will give Vodafone an option to compete with the likes of Reliance Jio and Airtel as the latter is offering VoLTE in Chennai, while the former has pan-India VoLTE coverage.

Speaking with reporters from PTI, Murali also confirmed that Vodafone had made investments of Rs 600 crore in both Chennai and Tamil Nadu during the current financial year. Furthermore, he confirmed that Vodafone currently has 7,234 sites in the circle, out of them 1,700 sites have the double carrier facility offering double the speed for customers.

“(The company) invested Rs 7,300 crore till date. Invested over Rs 450 crore in the current financial year(in Tamil Nadu)”, Murali said. Vodafone is currently serving 16 million subscribers in the Tamil Nadu circle.

Speaking about Chennai circle, he said that the company had launched 2,539 sites launched between 2017 and 2018 and invested over Rs 3,000 crore till date. In the current financial year, Vodafone has invested Rs 150 crore in Chennai circle.

CA means Carrier Aggregation, and unless they merge 2 carriers(2 or more frequency bands like Band 3{1800} and band 40[2300} in the case of 2CA), they can’t call it Carrier aggregation.

3G has single carrier speeds of upto 21Mbps(You will get 18Mbps peak speeds on a 21Mbps network. Dual carrier 3G or DC-HSPA+ uses 2 carriers and has a max speed of 42Mbps, and Airtel has DC-HSPA+ in Sri Lanka and you get between 27 to 32Mbps on their 3g network. I’m sure they got more spectrum in Sri Lanka for 4g this time.

And you are the BIGGEST SUPER DUPER FOOL.
Have you ever used Vodafone? I doubt it.
Vodafone service in India is one of the Best. The number of customers of Vodafone are testimony of this. Indirectly you are calling all the satisfied Vodafone customers to be fools.
Only FOOLS like you criticize Good Service.
In your foolish opinion may I know which service provider satisfies your telecom needs?

Some Operators are Good at some places while others at some. Please don’t loose your calm if your beloved operator isn’t good at somebody’s place.
