Vi customers from parts of India’s Maharashtra state – including Pune city – took to social networking platforms on Thursday complaining about connectivity problems in the mobile networks, causing inconvenience, especially in these pandemic-ridden times when all work depends on the Internet and phone calls.
While the telco is yet to acknowledge the issue, Vi customers from parts of India are also revealing that recharges that they have fuelled their SIM cards with since last night have also not been activated by the company as of now.
#vodafoneindia has been Pathetic. Giganet is far away if your mobile data doesn't work. No network since midnight.— GrowthMachine (@healthyrichwise) October 15, 2020
Vi Vi Vi karne se kuch nhi hoga

With their meme caps on, trolls are flooding Twitter with hilarious reactions to this supposed network outage.
The issue comes just a day after Vishal Vohra, the long-time chief Technology officer (CTO) of Vodafone-Idea, quit the company.
Earlier, in September, the UK-headquartered telco said it is likely to invest upwards of an extra $900 million (INR 6,600 crore) in India – not as “fresh equity”, but as part of a pre-merger agreement it signed with Idea.
