Airtel is pathetic. I switched from Airtel 3G to BSNL 3G, and it is surprisingly much faster. Even HD videos stream smoothly without stopping. Some times it looses signal for few minutes but then it comes back. I hope they can fix that.

I wonder why they are not launching LTE for smartphones. Many people already have Samsung Galaxy SIII and more will come…

Airtel 4G ! Ha..Ha…Ha… I am a victim of Airtel Mobile for 5 years & now out.
I am user of Airtel 3G & Reliance bb+. Airtel 3G itself is just 30% speed of Reliance in Bangalore City ! I want to put Airtel 3G in dustbin. Airtel is run by Mafia group !. If you complain, some goonda will come to your house and threate !. I. We bought one 4G data card for my boss & it is worst than 2G speed !
