During the year, as data consumption increased manifold putting telecom networks under tremendous pressure, we substantially enhanced network capacities and our Network Warriors braved the challenges of lockdown and social distancing protocols, to ensure Vi customers get the best network experience which helps them to stay ahead and thrive.”
