There is no word from CC even though I sent mail to them on the availability of the 4G module upgrade, looks like we are stuck with ultra-slow 2g vodafone. because of this I’m stuck at my app won’t sync with Ather and it’s been 7 days, and the maps won’t load at all
Today, the signal was so poor right from Marathahalli until Atibele that I could not use the navigation at all. I tried searching for location on multiple places, but was getting “No internet” all the time.
Only after reaching near Hosur, Vodafone signal became good and push location popped up on dashboard… So, this update on 4G LTE is a welcome news.
But, I have concern about the only carrier choice of Jio even after upgrading to LTE. In many areas like mine, Jio has literally zero signal. Before Vodafone 3G was shut-down, at least it had 1-2 bars, but Jio was zero all the time.
Why can’t Ather tie up with at least 2 carriers for the network instead of depending on only one, leaving no choice for the subscriber.
I would say we should wait for the module may be the indoor network on jio might be slow, but since the ather, is always gonna be outdoor it might have good reception.
They buy data in bulk, so right now it won’t be possible, it’s like they order 1000s of the sim with a probability of having that each one will transmit at least 100-1000 MB of data so they order accordingly switching network means they will have to buy data again
@abhishek.balaji I am taking out ather to my home town because of lockdown. Can you please make a special request to get the 4G module upgrade in my scooter before this Friday. I would be highly satisfied if this request is considered.
If you open in next I will not be able to upgrade it since I will be in my hometown. It may take another 3-6 months for the upgrade. So just wanted to know if anything can be made feasible from your end.
Looks like Chennai will have to wait till May first week for the module , today they took my scooter for network drop issue and I’m being told it will take 2 more weeks for Chennai to be having the upgrade. Since Bengaluru is on Covid Lockdown why not give Chennai a Go?
