Vodafone India has installed eight additional Telecom towers at AIIMS, recently. This move is done by the company to improve outdoor and indoor connectivity. For quite some time, the company has been working with the civil agencies like hospitals, government buildings, and other public spaces to decrease the problem of connectivity and increase overall network performance.
Vodafone India has also been conducting drives across Delhi to find pockets of congestion and is also working on removing the issues. To address network-related issues, the company has also set up “War Rooms” that will work 24×7 to resolve such issues.
This move by the firm at AIIMS is one of the many initiatives that they have taken to address the network requirements of the people.
