Nice bit of data diggingVi have finally shut down 3G service in my city (now I guess most parts of MH circle). Now, only 4G/2G is available. for 2G only Band 8 is used. Band 1 3G which got shutdown is now added to Band1 for 4G (15 MHz) earlier it was 10 MHz.
I get this following BW for Vi in my area (verified using Samsung service menu *#0011#) :
Band 8 (900)
Band 1 (2100) - 15 MHz
Band 3 (1800) - 10 MHz
Band 8 (900) - 10 MHz
Band 40 (2300) - 10 MHz
Band 41 (2500) - 20 MHz
In total 65 MHz of 4G BW.
Still Vi has worst routing in my place like twitter and Quora takes ages to load.
Only Speedtest and Google service(YT, Gmail etc.) gets good speed, for rest routing/speed you have to wait till your hairs become grey
Note: Till last week Vi was: Band 8 (5 MHz), Band 1 (10 MHz), Band 3 (10 MHz), Band 40 (10 MHz) and Band 41 (20 MHz)
Which smartphone your mother use? As far as I know, routing issues has been solved by now atleast on major cities. Whatever issues with VoLTE and VoWifi, it will get solved after September 29,I feel. Yellow sim or New Vi sim.@Lucifer96 I was Vodafone COCP user till JULY 2020 after which I shifted to Airtel. But my mother still has Vi.
I got message from Vi regarding that they have completed network integration back in JUNE 2020, but in reality they messed up everything. I used to get 100+ Mbps throughout the day and even in peak hours I used to get atleast 70+ Mbps and VOLTE was working fine. But after their message the network become useless, with call drops, no network stability (shifts between 2G/3G/4G), speeds become horrible even I stopped getting VOLTE from JUNE 2020, so I ported to Airtel.
I far as I remember, when I last checked in JUNE 2020, I used to get only Band 1 (10 MHz), Band 3 (10 MHz) and Band 8 (5 MHz).
But somewhere after December 2020 they added Band 40 (10 MHz) and in Feb 2021 they added Band 41 (20 MHz).
Last month they shutdown 3G and updated Band 1 (15 MHz) and Band 8 (10 MHz).
Despite Vi deploying colossal amount (in total 65 MHz) of spectrum in my area, still my mother complaints about call drops, slow speed, unreliable network, VOLTE not working etc. Vi used to be fastest and best in my area till JUNE 2020, but after that its game over for them. Many people in my area ported to Airtel/Jio. Only Few are with Vi. I have seen network getting improved from worst to best, but Vi is first case which went from Best to worse.
We can just rant over failure of Vi, even after complaining in AUG 2020 they send network engineer twice who had no clue to resolve problem.
No, Vi routing and ping is still terrible atleast in Mumbai, plus they have started hiding routing table, you don't see anything after the gateway I'd 192.0.0.1Which smartphone your mother use?
