Totally agreed with @Sachin.The reason airtel ‘gathered’ so many subscribers as it’s network was relatively better in past years(less call drop etc),But now the situation is changed and airtel looting innocent people with high tariffs,many of them never heared something like number portal.Here what I get
Vodafone 2g-RS 12 80MB/3days
BSNL 3g-RS 15 90MB/2days(Slow speed for 3G but still better)
Airtel 2g-RS 18 90 MB/2days!!!


Go for Rcdma. it is best among all network specially for bangalore. Best data speed always above 5 mbps in very cheap rate ( 1gb for 94 and 4gb for 246). in 949 everything is unlimited..I got this network best for bangalore after using airtel, idea and one even close..


@sameer, how many times you will post the same thing? rcdma may be better at your place but it is not good all over India. I also used it for sometime then sold my unlocked dongle on ebay. they will soon stop their services in many parts of India.


I am using the same from last 2 months but it never crossed 1-1.5Mbps speed. It uses Rev A speed which can’t go beyond this speed limit. 5Mbps using Reliance CDMA sim in unlocked Data card is impossible. If you have snapshot of it please share. However, 1.5Mbps speed is enough for streaming YouTube videos and watching movies. Thank you
