  1. Vodafone Mumbai shutdown his 3g in mumbai now b1 become 10mhz frm 5mhz,,@esmail vi has b3 libralised spectrum or non libralised ,,because b3 has 15 mhz but thy use only 10 mhz its due to non librlise they skipping that??

    • Vi does not have 15 MHz liberalised band 3 spectrum in Mumbai, it has 14.6 MHz liberalised, out of which 10 MHz is being used for LTE and 4.6 MHz for 2G services. Yes band 1 has been refarmed for 4G and Vodafone 3G signal is no longer visible in network scan in Mumbai circle.
      They have a good 10 MHz chunk in band 8 as well which they can use for 4G (remaining 1 MHz can be used for 2G) for improving indoor connectivity along with the band 1 and 3 10 MHz blocks. And the 20 MHz in band 41 is for adding capacity.

    • Coz for 4G u can either have 5 MHz or 10 MHz or 15 MHz or 20 MHz. U can’t have 4G in the extra 4.6 MHz unless u use narrow band LTE of 1.4 and 3 MHz. Maybe soon Vi will shift the 2G operations to band 3 and use band 8 for LTE and call it platinum 4G or something.
