Total band 1 spectrum for Vodafone Idea will be the aggregate of band 1 spectrum held by both Vodafone and Idea. If Idea has 5Mhz band 1 in Chennai, eventually full 15Mhz will be deployed for band 1 LTE.

Here in Jharkhand airtel has 30mhz spectrum of B40.i have seen b40 20mhz and b40 10mhz working individually.it can easily do b40 20mhz+b40 10mhz CA here.i think only jio is properly utilising its spectrum.Almost every state it provides 5+3,5+40,3+40,40+40,5+3+40,3+40+40 CA combinations.Even though it has less spectrum than airtel and VIL

Airtel does Band 40+ Band 40 and Band 40+ Band 3 here in Kolkata. VIL has the largest amount of spectrum here but they don’t utilise it properly. Jio does Band 40 + Band 40, Band 3 + Band 5, Band 40 + Band 3 and 3CA across all the bands. Yet they have the slowest speeds.

Exactly. Also, they need to up their coverage within metro cities. You’re better off with Airtel or even Vodafone for overall coverage, even deep inside buildings where Jio fails. LTE wise, Jio has the best coverage followed closely by Airtel. Vodafone is plain weird - some places have terrific coverage while it’s abysmal elsewhere.

Yes in kolkata 40+40,3+40 works.but still they are not using 3+40+40CA in kolkata which they use in chennai.And in kolkata i did not get any CA on VIL despite of large spectrum.But in jio i got 40 mhz bw in kolkata with 3CA 3+40+40 although speeds were just around 27Mbps.
