    U r gettin it wrong. whatever the speed the tell, divide it by 9 then u will get to know your upload speed i.e the speed u see whenever downloading anything. ex. if it is 240 kbps, then the speed will b around 24 -25 kb approx. i hope u get it

    Also the operators shift signal strengths from area to area on a daily basis. So today if the signal strength is good tomorrow it could dip and be ok again after few days. Whenever I have complained, the operators always enquire “Which area are you from” and then fix the signal strength. They play with signal strength.

    port to airtel. They have better signal

    in western region airtel operates on 1800 so they have a bit weak signals compared to vodafone and idea. while roaming from one place to another all the three are good but when we talk about indoor coverage than vodafone is the best.

    Vodafone offers the best consistent GPRS download speeds in Hyderabad(in normal 2G GPRS data packs compared to Airtel/Aircel/Idea}.In AP we have Rs 98-1.5 Gb ,Rs 115-2 GB ,Rs 155-3GB & Rs 450 -1 month unlimited packs.I have three voda sims for 3 Nexus Android phones in our house hold with the above packs .Earlier they had Rs 27-1 Gb-7 days pack.Now rs 27 gives only 375 mb .so not worth it.
    Unlimited packs are not worth the trouble due to 5 KB speed cap.At an average 28 KBPS in Vodafone(range 20-40 KBPS) I download easily 1.5 Gb a day. Also IDEA 2 hours pack @ rs 46 (for AP) can download 2 GB easily if you get good speeds at your location.(300-500 KBPS)

        @techfreak, A month ago Goverment of India had asked all telcos to reduce radiation levels to 1/10 of the level they were providing at that time. That’s the reason why signal strength has become weaker. At my place Reliance GSM, BSNL and Airtel signal is almost become nil, indoor. Vodafone, Tata Docomo, Aircel and Idea is good. Vodafone and Idea operating on 900MHz, so it hasn’t affected their signal strength atleast in our area. But yes people are facing problems throughout the country.

    @Jitendar,

    Bro, I’m living just 30Kms away from you. Me and my friend also bought Vodafone SIM from Kala Amb (HP) (which is at 10Kms distance from my place and 20Kms from you) when Vodafone do away with roaming charges on data packs. Now I’m using the same 96-2GB plan at my hometown in Haryana.

    As far as S-Tel is concerned, they will not return as company hasn’t applied for licenses again. It’s true that they were the cheapest and best in terms of tariffs in Himachal. One of my friend who has shop in Kala Amb also used the same for long time. We used to receive S-Tel signals on rooftop in our town as tower was at a height due to mountain region.

    I don’t know what they will do with their 3G licenses in 3 circles which also includes HP. They can think of providing 3G only but it’s hard to generate revenues in C category circles or if they don’t have any plans, they must sell it to someone else like Tata Docomo or Aircel as none of these two have license for Himachal.

    This plan is of no use. I’m from Nahan, Himachal Pradesh and Voda is already providing 2gb at rs.96 here. so y wud i spent rs.53 more just to get 40kbps speed. i get 160-180kbps speed.

    To all :

    In most of the Indian operators, the speed before the data limit ltself is like 40 Kbps (not KB/s). Then think about the speed that we will get after FUP !!!!. LOL LOL.

    I think my point is true.

  • Prithvi October 25, 2012 11:32 am, 11:32 AM

    @Shabbir
    The normal speeds hover around 100kbps (kilo “bits” ps) = 12.5 Kilo “bytes” ps. If you think they will render in Kilo BYTES … forget about it. 40kbps means they’ll render post FUP speeds at 40kbps = 5KBps (divide by 8). kb = kilobits ; KB = Kilobytes … divide/multiply by 8 and don’t be fooled by the cc’s loose usage of the words ‘bits’ and ‘bytes’.

    In Jharkhand Airtel is not capping speed after 2gb.It is capping speed from start.
    Few days ago it gives me 237kbps download speed in 2g.But now i am getting maximum
    40kbps download speed in IDM 16connection and my 2g data balance is not deducting.
    It is constant 2120.99MB.I waste my money.

    I have used more than 200 MB in 3 days on mobile using 2G plan of BSNL. Use auto mode mode on your 3G mobile. It will automatically latch on HSPA even you are using 2G plan. BSNL is best.@Sahil Shah

    I accept that speed wise bsnl is best i get constant 160kbps in 3g mode but i am not able to connect to bsnlnet apn at all. takes 10 to 20 mins to connect and sometimes doesnot connect at all. but once connected it doesnot disconnect. so what is the use if i am not able to connect?? i complained 3 to 4 times in last 2 months but no solution. they give a complain no and in next 24 hrs i get a msg that it is resolved but the true story is its not. I even got a call from bsnl cc telling me that there is some prob at pune so i m facin the prob and will be solved in somedays but what about my validity of the pack?? validity was over and i was not able to use net properly. so one thing which no one can deny is the cc of bsnl sucks. i am not saying that i dnt face problems in airtel or vodafone but whatever it is it is resolved within 24 to 48 hrs max. this is the diff between bsnl and airtel / vodafone. even docomo uninor solves faster than bsnl..

    First – airtel, then, idea and now vodafone….! Others like docomo, reliance and other too will come up with this kind of schemes or even with much more palatable ones ! This reminds me of the TV commercial of a popular online trading portal which put a potential buyer dumbfounded. Reason he wanted to buy a particular model of phone, but prefers to wait so that price will come after the launch of newer newer one/version of the same model! The current situation too is somewhat similar – for the present 4G is latest. Since 3G is a non starter, 2G is facing the “butcher’s block”. Wait for some more time …..!

    So people, Telecom talk members are “Happy to Help” to make “Express yourself” to get awesome idea” we must teach them lesson for these three big companies who steals money from customers pocket.

    To all :

    In most of the Indian operators, the speed before the data limit ltself is like 40 Kbps (not KB/s). Then think about the speed that we will get after FUP !!!!. LOL LOL.

    ridiculous plan again. speed limit on gprs, even plan is costly
    2g should not cost more than rs50-60

    It is unfortunate to see how the operators are following each other like herds. No operator is innovating with respect to tariff plans. Moreover all of them are introducing weird 2G plans thereby forcing customers towards expensive and unaffordable 3G plans. Also customers using 3G network do not get more than 128 kbps on their existing 2G data plans.
    All this leads us to believe that the operators are acting like a cartel against the interest of customers. And the regulatory authorities are also acting in collusion with them.
    It is high time that educated people raise their voice and start boycotting these operators in different ways.

    Don’t ignore BATTERY USAGE which isn’t good enough for using 2GB considering 30 days, forget more usage. ALSO it is myth that free usage limit speeds go beyond 40kb … it isn’t more than 20kbps at best .. so post FUP 40 kbps is laughable and misleading. The service operators know this and I can assure you 70% of the users who’ll opt for 2GB packages will end up using not more than 1GB.

    Vodafone’s 2G speed is quite good in karnataka, i get a consistent speed of 15-17KB/sec in peak hours (evening) & 27-33KB/sec at noon & early morning.

    COverage & call quality of vodafone is very impressive.

    FUP : Fair Usage Policy.

    After particular limit of use generally operator changes their service terms.

    COME ON! you can at least cap the speed to 80kbps! if it doesn’t reach 10 KBps then even opera mini takes time to load!! At least Airtel and Idea allow people to access their 3g network on 2g packs.. in that case even 40kbps would give a steady 5 KBps download speed.. :P anyway, we’re back to the age of dial up speeds! Now only if they would cap speeds to 28.8 kbps the consumers would be miserably delighted! lol

    Tharun George :

    Trai said unlimited should be minimum 256kbps. Operators then reduced speed from 128kbps to 40kbps.

    That was for Broadband (Wire-line and Wireless) Not for 2G / GPRS.

    Any ways speed cap is not good policy in any terms.

    Is Airtel, Idea and Vodafone twins?

    There tariff are same, 3G packs are same, 2G packs are same. Whatever one do other follow. They have 3G ICRA all over india.

    They are not competing. They are doing price fixing in Indian GSM market.

    Why are they making joke about consumers by offering 40kbps. What they suppose we do with 40kbps? Why can’t they just say no internet after 2GB. Instead they want to put unlimited name on packs.

    Trai said unlimited should be minimum 256kbps. Operators then reduced speed from 128kbps to 40kbps.
