Airtel, Vi Boost Ayodhya Network for Ram Mandir Inauguration
In preparation for the much-anticipated inauguration of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Airtel and Vodafone Idea (Vi) have collaborated to enhance network connectivity across the city. This strategic move ensures seamless telecom services in key locations, including the Airport, railway station, bus stands, landmarks, hotels, and other significant venues.

Airtel's Network Enhancements:

Airtel has taken substantial steps to bolster its network infrastructure in Ayodhya. Additional network sites have been deployed, and cells on wheels have been strategically placed. Optic fiber cables have been laid to ensure comprehensive coverage throughout the city. Airtel has focused on not disrupting voice and data services, installing additional sites and base transceiver stations (BTS) to cover the Mandir and its surroundings.

Airtel Fiber has been introduced to provide high-speed data coverage in areas that demand it. The deployment of Cells on Wheels (CoW) is notable, with each positioned strategically in Ayodhya Dham, Ayodhya Cantt, Ram Bhadra, Brahmakund, Guptar Ghat, Parikrama Marg, Highway, Airport, Katra railway station, Bus stand, and Ramprasth Park. Extra manpower, including network engineers, has been deployed to ensure uninterrupted service and manage any surge in demand during the event.

Vi's Network Enhancements:

Vi has collaborated with the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), the government, and local authorities such as the Ayodhya Development Authority, the Public Work Department, the Airport Authority, and the Police. This collaboration has facilitated swift approvals for tower space and the movement of material and manpower.

Vi's network infrastructure improvements include upgrades to existing sites across major areas of Ayodhya. This has been done by increasing capacity, enhancing backhaul connectivity, and augmenting the network across all spectrum bands. New sites have been added, and Vi has upgraded/refarmed L2100 spectrum capacity at critical locations, including Ayodhya Railway Station, Ram Mandir Campus, the Airport, the Railway station, and connecting highways to Lucknow and Varanasi.


As Ayodhya prepares for the historic Ram Mandir inauguration, Airtel and Vi's commitment to enhancing network connectivity ensures that residents and visitors can enjoy uninterrupted voice and data services. The collaboration between these telecom giants underscores the significance of seamless communication during monumental events, emphasizing the importance of robust infrastructure for the benefit of the community.
