How to upgrade to Vodafone 4G?

Vodafone is offering a free SIM upgrade to its existing 3G customers. The operator is offering immediate 4G SIM exchange at its select stores as well as same day doorstep delivery. To request for 4G SIM, customers can call Vodafone’s customer care number at 199 and place a request, or send an SMS <4GSIM> to 199. Vodafone promises to deliver postpaid 4G SIMs on the same day if you request it before 4PM. If your request is sent after 4pm, the operator will deliver the SIM next day.

New customers can apply for Vodafone 4G connection through Vodafone stores and select retail outlets. In case you want to check if your phone is 4G compatible, send an SMS <4GCHECK> to 199.

What are the data tariff plans?

Like Airtel, Vodafone is offering 4G plans at the same price of its existing 3G plans. Right now, Vodafone is offering 1GB of data for Rs 297 with 28 days of validity. Airtel on the other hand is offering 1GB of data for Rs 259 with 28 days of validity.

Vodafone has launched a few 4G plans such as a trial pack of 35MB for Rs 11, and 20GB for Rs 2,499.

What speed will I receive on Vodafone 4G?

On SpeedTest, Vodafone 4G s download speed hovered between 50Mbps and 70Mbps during our brief usage at the launch event. It is highly unlikely that end users will be receiving this ultra high speed when the network is widely available in Delhi and NCR. According to a Vodafone official, end users are likely to get consistent speeds between 5Mbps and 20Mbps.

Which band Vodafone is using for 4G services in Delhi NCR?

Vodafone is offering 4G services on the 1800MHz band. It s notable the the 1800 MHz band is considered to be a preferred network for 4G roll out. Competitor Airtel offers 4G at 2300MHz band but also plans to roll out FD-LTE technology in the 1800MHz band. It s worth pointing out that 2300MHz is considered to be relatively less optimized for 4G, and fairs poorly in terms of indoor coverage. Reliance Jio, which has pan-India 4G licence, will be using 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2300MHz bands for its 4G rollout.
