The fact now raised is that how many satisfied customers in 4g. As in 2g entry level customers are till now not satisfied with any of basic coverage ,cost and expenses , roaming and basic quality of services via speed,quality and volume. So its now the time to say 4g is only a marketing stunt. Then airtel is now selling hope . It means airtel is catching fish from no pray to feed.

@Neha George : how many fish have you caught? clearly you have not even used airtel 4G – yet call it a “marketing stunt” TSK TSK.

Perhaps one of the things that you have to realise is that 4G is not launched as a separate service. Any 3G prepaid plan can be used in LTE network also. Isn’t that good?

@Captain O – very true – you are getting a much faster service (38 mbps against 7-10 mbps in 3G) for nothing extra. Some people like Neha George don’t seem to realise (or accept) or appreciate this!!
