      As per my assumptions, Idea 3G would be available in hissar and yes you would be able to use your Idea UP W SIM for 3G roaming anywhere in India except Odisha and J&K (prepaid).

    Idea recently launched 3G services in our town i.e Naraingarh. No 3G speed on 2G plans. They have capped the speed to 128Kbps. But when I upload, the speed goes to 480Kbps and on an average more than 300Kbps. So it means they providing more upload speed then download. Just check this here http://www.speedtest.net/result/1453860324.png Also I tested the same with Tata Docomo/BSNL in Patiala (Punjab) and they too haven’t capped upload speed to 128Kbps. On BSNL I got 1.5Mbps while on Tata 712Kbps (max.) and 512Kbps average on 2G plans.

    Anurag Bhatia :@ashR nahi yaar. Even Rohtak has GPRS on most of places from Airtel. On way from Kurukshetra – Karnal – Panipat, EDGE is mostly on core of cities, while all outer areas, highways are on GPRS. And in Rural side, most are on GPRS.
    This was when I ported in last December, as far as I heard it’s still very poor. Even performance on GPRS or EDGE is very poor. Usually around 2-8KB/s, while on Tata Docomo I found it to be 15-20KBps on EDGE (100% EDGE coverage).

    Ok………but kya fark pdta h…Airtel ka gprs ho ya EDGE speed to 2KBps ki aati h……

    I ported from Airtel to Tata Docomo. Apart from 3G factor, EDGE on Docomo is way too better then Airtel. Infact in Haryana you will find Airtel has over 70% of area’s still on GPRS and it just doesn’t works!
    In terms of Internet usage, Tata Docomo gives best experience, but I am little bit unhappy with call drops, and “beep-beep” connection mode Tata has.

    m not agree wid u……Airtel has EDGE n/w at most places of haryana…….

    well said..Idea gets largest revenue and also has highest subscriber base in Maharashtra than any other circles. Then also delaying launch. And even they launch it will available only in 4 to 5 cities. When it will available at towns that nobody knows.

    Maharashtra mein kal launch ho gaya – at pune, nagpur and nashik
