Telecom giant Vodafone launched its SuperNet 4G services here today and plans to take the high-speed network to all major towns of Rajasthan by March next year.
"As a steadfast partner to Digital India, we are delighted to launch Vodafone SuperNet 4G in Rajasthan during this third phase of our 4G rollout," COO (Vodafone India) Naveen Chopra said.
He further said "Vodafone's global expertise and experience of launching 4G across 20 countries gives us a better understanding of this technology and the needs of the 4G customer, who means high speed data streaming."
The operator is providing free upgrade to 4G for the customers along with high-speed 4G SIM and with 2GB data free with every upgrade to 4G for the existing customers.
Customers buying greater than 1GB packs will get twice the data allowance.
Justifying the launch of the service from Jodhpur instead of state capital Jaipur, Rajasthan's Business Head Amit Bedi said that Jodhpur is a prominent business and cultural hub of the state with 5 times growth in 4G-enabled handsets and 23% data revenue growth.
"Rajasthan is a key market for Vodafone India and as one of the leading telecom service providers out almost 12 million customers have a lot to look forward to," said Bedi.
"Beginning with key trade, tourism and residential corridors of Jodhpur, we will soon expand our 4G services across the entire state in a phased manner," he said.
The launch in Rajasthan follows the launch of Vodafone SuperNet 4G services in Kerala, Karnataka, Kolkata, Delhi & NCR, Mumbai, Haryana, UP East, Gujrat and Rest of Bengal circle.
