Actually 4G testing is going on here in Sivakasi, afaik.. They are testing in 6 towers only out of 18+ towers in Sivakasi and two more towers need to be connected to fibre.. Then only they will switch ON 4G on all the 18+ towers from the info, which I got from their team… For now wrt data speed, Airtel 3G > Airtel 4G > Vodafone 3G > Idea 4G, here in Sivakasi…
