The company has approached Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), Vodafone and Idea Cellular for the agreement. Under the 3G ICR, the telecom operators which are not under the 3G spectrum in a particular circle can make use of their partner's network to sell and operate 3G services.  Vodafoneto improve call drop problem in Delhi-NCR Vodafone has announced significant reduction in call drops in Delhi over the past 12-16 weeks.
