I have been using Airtel’s 4G for the last one month and I really love it. Coverage still not the best like their 3G but I still get access to their service at most places I visit. Although I cannot guarantee the same experience for everyone. Speeds are decent. I don’t need more. Living in Kolkata I am used to slower speeds on broadband as well as mobile networks. Calls process well with their awesome 3G network. It has been quite a few months and their 3G service has still not degraded. Crystal clear voice and constant data service. I… Read more »

2g voice is bad because Airtel is using 1800 MHZ for voice in kolkata and premium 900 MHZ for 3g. Vodafone 3g in kolkata is good in terms of speed compared to Airtel but experiencing call drops for last 6 months due to congestion in network. Last 6 months I am using airtel 4g for data and Airtel 3g network for call and very satisfied @Newtown area.

@Newtown,even the most congested operator will work flawlessly.Vodafone,I think,is undergoing some maintenance work in Kolkata.All are saying that their are frequent call drops and speed is also not satisfactory.If you are facing call drops @ Newtown also then this must be the reason definitely.

I am getting peak speeds of 8 Mbps to 13 Mbps at my place and average of 3-4 Mbps. Peak speed only during torrent downloads. Any reason?
Using Reliance unlimited 3g @ INR 98/-.

In Kerala Idea has heavily congested network.. most of the localities it takes around 5-10secs for calls to setup.. 3g data is too slow even to open google pages at crowded areas.. Vodafone in Kerala also is no better..

Rishav its true that that the voice clarity is damn crystal clear on platinum 3G network but regarding 4G I cannot agree with you.Their speed is capped and coverage is patchy.Its very much true that on 2G its a pain to hear the other person.You will have to assume what the other person is trying to say.I have seen many leaving Airtel just because they have those basic Samsung or Nokia phones and facing voice hearing problems on the 2G network.Their 4G and 2G need a lot of improvement.
