Vodafone starts teasing its upcoming 4G services

Taking a cue from Idea Cellular’s 4G launch teaser, Vodafone has also pushed its 4G launch teaser. The company has released a poster that hints about the approaching service.

Vodafone published the poster on its Facebook India page, which reads,”Get ready for an international 4G experience “. The Facebook post also mentions,”it’s here finally and it’s going to be awesome!”. The teaser clearly projects Vodafone’s aggressive strategy to launch its 4G network in India.

Telecom operators are competing to launch their 4G network ahead of Reliance JIO’s impending 4G launch. JIO is already present across vast regions, which comes up as a big challenge to telecom biggies such as Vodafone and Airtel. However, JIO’s parent company is Reliance, who is a Greenfield operator, which gives an edge to JIO over other networks.

To prevent its customer base from switching, Idea has begun taking registration for its 4G services. Idea’s 4G network will be available in 126 cities, spread across 8 circles.

Being a strong market player, Vodafone is planning to launch their 4G network in 5 circles as of now. The company is aiming at providing better quality service and that is why its first base of users will be limited to just five circles. The company has also deployed FDD LTE network in the selected circles to offer better Indoor signals.

Do you think the early launch of Vodafone 4G in five circles could help it in standing tall against JIO whose robust 4G network is even spread across villages? Share your views in the comment section below.

But still, Vodafone will fail. They need more spectrum yaknow? I uploaded my photos to the Amazon cloud.… Read more »

It is no doubt that launch of 4G by Reliance JIO in the New Year months having robust network base in Rural and Urban cities will likely to effect the base of Vodafone launching 4G in 5 telecom circles. and may put a dent on AIRTEL and IDEA too. Launch of 4G by Reliance JIO by Jan next year may also put a dent to leading Operators is a big challenge for them. In the telecom industry battle field, Reliance JIO network is a major threat and challenge on them. To overcome such hurdles, major Operators are already adopting attractive… Read more »

This is good news, but what about the quality-of-service? Jio has been planning & testing their LTE network for years now. AVoId, on the other hand, have taken a hurried decision to deploy 4G before Jio to grab high ARPU customers. Their strategy of implementing 4G as an overlay network is different from Jio’s omnipresent LTE base stations. The differences in QoS will be huge.

Aye aye cap’n. That’s true. Jio will have more power because of more spectrum. Just recently they have decided to take 15×15 (30MHz) of 700MHz spectrum in the coming auctions… If that’s so, that’d be GOLD! so 700 and 2300MHz Carrier Aggregation would be superb. I think they need more spectrum in some other band… probably 1700MHz or 1900MHz.
