"Built on the efficient 1,800 MHz band, the state-of-art network will enable Vodafone 4G customers to access Internet via mobile speeds across a range of smart devices, including mobile Wi-Fi and dongles," Sood said.

"The 4G network has the potential to revolutionise the mobile experience through powerful innovation that impacts how we work and live. With this, Vodafone is present in five circles which contribute 30 percent of industry revenues and nearly 50 percent of Vodafone India data revenues," Sood said, adding the service will be launched in Bengaluru on Thursday.

The service can be readily accessed from 4G-enabled handsets of leading smartphones like iPhone, Samsung, Micromax, Microsoft, Lava and Xolo and would significantly enhange the mobile internet experience with faster download/upload of videos, music, seamless video chats and greater ease in using apps.
