So, my Sim is a Vodafone 3yr old 4G sim Maharashtra home network. I used to get a very poor network at my home in Bihar.
After Vodafone and Idea rebranding to VI. The network went poorer.
Now even outside, in the city or say the state, I have verified and it never goes more than -95dbm.

I raised several complaints on the app and Twitter. And they all were responded as "Hi! We already have on-air sites in this area & with current sites prevailing too, no further coverage enhancement is currently feasible. However, we are in process to prioritize your area to ensure better coverage".

Now about Volte/Vowifi, so I am in the roaming since the last year 2019 November. I never saw a Volte network. After researching how to receive the Volte signal, I got to know it needed to be activated by Cc. I followed the process but failed to receive any Volte signal. After a number of follow-ups with their team through Twitter and calls. I was lastly told in May 2020 that as I was in roaming, the Volte service could not be activated. But I was surprised the day before yesterday when I was in UP, I started seeing Volte network, even when the network was very very poor. But as soon as I entered Bihar, the Volte signal disappeared. I have raised a complaint again with Cc about this and yet to receive a comment. But if anyone has a similar experience, please share.

@amalrakoff How can you say this? Do you have any links to support?
I talked with their CC a number of times and they never mentioned such a thing.
Also, I believe it's now PAN India if note earlier than after Vodafone and Idea merger.

And Yeah. My IDEA sim has been using Volte for a very long time.

@imdarkray sims maybe Vi, while taking a vi sim the retailer or the showroom agent can choose between Vodafone and Idea ,still there are 2 operators Vodafone and idea are still present they are using different network core still operating differently only the radio and network side integration is completed in Bihar while in other states its still going on so after that's complete then only those Vodafone and idea will disappear. both running different IMS (VOLTE) Config so that also differs between circles, now basically there is an anchor network which is the main network for ex here in Kerala the main network is IDEA and i am using Vi postpaid which runs on Vodafone core (all postpaid sims run on Vodafone Core) it still using vodafone ims still using vodafone's ambr limit and i have both sims Vodafone and idea you can try opening your APN Settings there is an MNC and MCC code which will specify which operator it is while mine still says its Vodafone
