Inviting the residents of rural Rajasthan to utilize the benefits provided by the Vodafone Mobile vans, Amit Bedi, Business Head- Rajasthan, Vodafone India, said, “Over the past years, Vodafone has added additional 4G sites to strengthen Vodafone SuperNetTM 4G and extended Vodafone’s best network to more and more towns and villages in Rajasthan. The Vodafone Mobile Vans will ensure that our existing 2G/3G customers are able to enjoy the benefits of Vodafone SuperNetTM 4G with free SIM upgrade done at their doorstep. The service of linking SIM number with the customer’s Aadhaar is an important step in line with Vodafone’s commitment to a Digital India. I am happy to say that this service has now been made simple and accessible to our valued customers even in remote villages, through our Mobile vans. Over the past 10 months, we have helped thousands of customers with 4G SIM upgrades along with their Vodafone SIM linked with Aadhaar number. ”
