i am in Chennai, I used BSNL Mobile from 2003, last week i ported to Airtel. Because of too much call drop issue and mobile internet speed very low, i cannot able to do Skype call. Now Airtel relatively little expense compare to BNSL. but service is far better in Airtel also 4G speed and no call drop issue.
