This is something which Vodafone should be really proud about – They have set a Guinness World Record for an uninterrupted call of 25 hours 11 minutes & 40 second. That’s an entire day and some more…
The uninterrupted telephone conversation which started on March 28th, 2012 at 12 noon in Mumbai went on till March 29th, 2012 till 1:11:40 pm. Also, it was just not about the time, but the number of people who participated in the call. There were total of 36 people who participated in this day long conversation. The Guinness World Record officials confirmed this record and went into the books as the record for “Most number of people in a telephone conversation relay”.
The finer details about how this call was made or how different people participated at different times is not known (presumably using conferencing) – However, the call was made for the purposes of record as Guinness World Record Officials were present on site during this call.
I am sure we will soon see Vodafone commercials making full use of this to show the strength and stability of Vodafone Network!
I am not taking anything away from this record, but, In my personal opinion, if you have excellent signal strength and ideal conditions call drop should not happen. If this record was achieved when subjects were moving and were in less than ideal locations, then it is surely something to brag about.
It would be interesting to see if other Telecom Operators soon try similar kind of record to prove their network stability & efficiency!
