Using their 4G services from last 8-9 months. Though prices is high but reliable speed and coverage. Airtel is winner here. Atleast they started their 4G here in stipulated time. Now if we talk about other operators IDEA does’t cover major cities of Punjab. Vodafone don’t have licence to operate 4G here.Besides RJio is complete failure in my opinion that taking too much time implementing their services. Aircel spectrum in not present here.
So winner starts losers only make excuses 😛

in Delhi etc. People so far connected culturally and socially have been divided due
to artificial telecom circle boundaries.
I don’t know why this is happening??

And if any NGO is reading this plz do something… Read more »
