After Airtel’s launch of 4G services in the country, Vodafone’s India arm is gearing up to launch its 4G services in Mumbai.
The company, which had launched its first 4G service in Kerala, has started making 4G SIM cards available in all of the 56 exclusive stores that it owns in and around Mumbai.
“We want our customers to be 4G-ready, so we have introduced this facility to upgrade to 4G-ready SIMs in advance,” Ishmeet Singh, business head–Mumbai, Vodafone India was quoted as saying to The Hindu.
The company also let out a statement which said that “to avail of 4G services, customers will need to have a 4G-enabled handset and a new 4G-ready SIM card. These are being made available ahead of the service’s commercial launch Mumbai.”
The statement also said customers can walk into a nearby Vodafone store and get their new 4G-ready SIM and will have the advantage of continuing uninterrupted mobile internet as per their existing plans and will be automatically upgraded to 4G as soon as the services are launched commercially.
