Airtel 3G Speed Test ResultsIts now time for other operators to show their colors on 3G. In our previous post we had posted the speed test review of Tata Docomo 3G services, courtesy goes to one of our readers.

This time another reader of our named Mr. Vikram Nigam who hails from New Delhi has tested his Airtel 3G connection.

Let’s see what it has in store for us Mr. Nigam tested his connection in the evening by using his Huawei HSDPA 3G Data Card then he tried it out on his mobile handset Nokia N78.

Following are the observations

1. The Airtel 3G network is very weak as you will see in screenshot, speed is not is up to the mark.

2. Also the network drops more on mobile as compared to that of on HSPDA data card the transfer speed fluctuated many times.

3.Airtel 3G speed test was done using the apn airtelgprs.com ,using Rs 98 gprs plan which gives 2GB free data for 30 days.

4.While testing the constant speed received was on average about 600kbps, please be noted that the maximum speed was up to 1.17Mbps.

5. From 1st November onwards Mr Nigam was getting 3G network of Airtel 3G whenever manual network was searched. But he wasn’t able to get it locked.

6. On 8th November 2010 it was automatically locked at around 9 p.m. on Huawei data card.

Please note:-The test was performed using Airtel 3G test signal so speed might differ and fluctuation might be caused due to test signal,actual speed may vary.

Following are the enclosed images.

We would like to thank Vikram Nigam for taking out his valuable time and giving us the feedback and observations regarding Airtel 3G service.

He was unable to test any other services like Video Streaming, Gaming etc as he is not quite sure on how to access them.If anyone has more info on it please post a comment here.
