Vodafone Idea to Roll Out 5G

Vodafone Idea's management said on 15 April that it intends to cover 40% of its revenue base with its 5G services in the next 24-30 months, adding that 5G network order placement will start once it secures funding.

It expects to roll out 5G services in select pockets within 6-9 months of the issue.

The telecom operator will make a focused network investment to drive coverage and capacity expansion. The investment will be focused on 17 priority circles in the country.

Vodafone Idea has been engaged with all 5G telecom gear vendors for some time and said that order placement will depend on how early it secures funding for capex.

India's third largest telco plans to spend the Rs 18,000 crore capital raised from its follow-on public offering (FPO) to set up new 5G sites, expand its 4G network, and defer spectrum payments.

Of the total FPO proceeds, the telco proposes to use Rs 127.5 bn to purchase equipment for expanding its network infrastructure by setting up new 4G sites, expanding the capacity of existing 4G sites, and setting up new 5G sites.

The telco will spend Rs 57.2 bn of the Rs 127.5 bn earmarked for network expansion on setting up its 5G network.

In FY25, it plans to set up 10,000 new 5G sites with a spend of Rs 26 bn, and in FY26, it will set up 12,000 5G sites with a spend of Rs 31.2 bn.
