11 Nov 2016

Vodafone India has revealed that it will expand its ‘SuperNet’ 4G LTE mobile broadband network services from a current presence in nine regional telecoms circles to a total of 17 circles by March 2017. The UK-backed cellco added that it will soon make the LTE network available in 2,400 towns, Telecompaper reported. The additional circles to receive Vodafone’s 4G coverage between now and March have been named as Assam & North East, Maharashtra & Goa, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu (including Chennai) and Uttar Pradesh (West), expanding the existing SuperNet footprint which includes Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Karnataka, Kerala, Haryana, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh (East) and West Bengal.

TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database says that Vodafone India – the country’s second-largest cellco by users – commercially launched its 1800MHz LTE service in December 2015, which reached coverage of five circles (Mumbai, Kerala, Karnataka, Kolkata and Delhi) within its first six months, augmenting Vodafone’s 2G and 3G services which are available across all 22 Indian telecoms circles.
