As per Vodafone, this WiFi zone at IGI Airport is spread across over 6,00,000 sq mts and is the largest in India.
Vodafone's WiFi services are now available in the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. The service was being tested from last three months and is now finally available for passengers at IGI airport. As per Vodafone, this WiFi zone at IGI Airport is spread across over 6,00,000 sq mts and is the largest in India.
This complimentary WiFi services will be available for free for Vodafone 3G and 4G data users. Vodafone users recharging for 1GB or 2GB 3G/4G internet packs will get an additional 1GB free data at the IGI airport or any other Wi-Fi zone powered by Vodafone. This complementary internet is also available on Vodafone U recharges of 1GB and above.
Speaking about the benefits of WiFi, Sandeep Kataria, Director - Commercial, Vodafone India, said, "With customer needs evolving from voice to data, WiFi is an effective technology to provide seamless connectivity to a large group of consumers in a defined space. Over one lakh inbound and outbound travellers use the IGI Airport each day. Our endeavour to offer Wi-Fi at the airport, will keep these travellers confidently connected on multiple devices, while they are transiting. Flying in and out of Delhi, will now be more fun for Vodafone customers who can also enjoy this free 1GB Wi-Fi seamlessly"

In addition, Vodafone is also planning to set up information booths, kiosks and promoters at both domestic and international terminals of IGI airport. Moreover, passengers can already enjoy a lot of entertainment options including HD video streaming, video conference calls and watch live as well as recorded sports.
This step is yet another attempt by Vodafone to counter Jio's free calling and 4G data services.
However you can only use that data from 12 to 6 AM and that too on 4G handset only.
As the name suggests, the Vodafone Flex offers flexibility to prepaid users and comes with no pre-fixed quotas for voice, data or SMS.
Vodafone is using 1800 MHz band for the 4G services.
Just a few days back, Airtel in a statement had also promised more interconnect points for Jio.
The operator has promised to roll out 4G services across West Bengal over the next few months.
Built on 1800 MHz band, Vodafone India claims that this service will enable its customers to access high speed internet across different devices such as Mi-Fi & dongles.
Vodafone also said that it will soon roll out 4G services in Gujarat and West Bengal and in 1,000 towns across the country by end of the year.
The plan pretty flexible and can be booked up to 120-days in advance of their planned travel.
Reliance Telecom and Tata Teleservices had pleaded against Bharti Airtel and Idea Cellular Ltd earlier.
