    ARJUN.C :AIRTEL TOWER SIGNALS NOT AVAILABLE HERE IN KOLAR, KARNATAKA.

    WTF u will be commenting on airtel signals. have u ever used Airtel or not or jus bluffing all the time?? Im using Airtel from past 6 years in kolar & roamed each & every corner of the city. Airtel is the best network here. I almost travel frequently to most of the places in karnataka & Airtel is the best network. second comes vodafone next,Idea,Docomo,Uninor & last is the idiotic Aircel with third class network. Nobody prefers to use Aircel as ter network sucks in most of the places. uninor is ten times better than aircel. GUYS I HAVE USED ALL THE NETWORKS & PLS DONT TRUST MR ARJUN. AIRTEL IS THE BEST ONE & AIRCEL IS THE WORST OPERATOR IN KARNATAKA, TATS THE REASON WHY THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO CROSS 1MILLION MARK EVEN AFTER 1&HALF YEARS OF OPERATION

    I’VE USED AIRTEL AND I THROWN IT IN FIRE BECAUSE AIRTEL HAS LOTS OF ISSUES (CALL DISCONNECTION, SMS FAILED, CALL FAILED) SUCH THAT I’VE THROWN AIRTEL AND SWITCHED TO AIRCEL

    I also agree with Mr deevan, airtel is not at all tat bad as narrated by arjun. Airtel’s network is very much far better than aircel. One cannot compare at all. raghu reliance gsm is quite good here. internet speed is also decent 120Kbps

    Airtel are good at copying others, vodafone offers at Rs. 4/- airtel offers at Rs.5/- Shame on stupid offers. This company follows a super rule : give in right hand and take in left hand.
