Airtel pricing 1125 for 4GB 4G and validity 56 days and speed maybe 30-40 mbps.
RCom pricing 649 for 5GB 3G and 56 days validity and speed of 2-4 mbps.
Ill anyday prefer RCom over Airtel here in Mumbai! 4G coming soon too.

When ever the data speed increased the data consumption also increased .Here in India [email protected] pack by avoid at 4g speed is really a big lool . 1gb vanishes in 1 or 2 hour if one started consumes it .If you want to use 1gb data for a whole month , then what is the relevance of 4g ?

4g is relevant as it brings in more capacity for customers… As more and more customers gets into 3g network it gets overloaded… So 4g is a need for increasing capacity to cope up with data traffic increase… In future when billions of devices gets connected to internet 4g even 4g will not be able to meet it… 5g will be required… Dont see 4g only as a means to increase speed…

My opinion about the data pack cost . am asking what is the use of 4g speed if operators charged 1gb data @300 ??? If we stream 2-3 YouTube videos it will eat the data balance as well as our remaining balance .

That’s what i said… When more and more customers folks into 3g network it gets loaded and starts to buffer while you watch youtube videos… Now in cities and densely populated areas 3g is congested at peak times… So for better experience you need 4g…
If your question is about watching unlimited movies and all wireline broadband is the only way forward… Wireless data cant support millions of peoples downloading unlimited data…

because of overload, Jio is bringing small cells. The small cells share the bandwidth and reduces load on the tower. Jio has decided to instal 1.5L small cells all over India. I hope they double the small cells to at least 3 lakhs all over the country so that more people can use their network, and they wont have so much congestion.

What ever you trying to convience is am already aware . This is not the justification for overpriced data stvs by our operator .They atleast can give 1gb @150 .

They can give when their capacity increases… If suddenly AVOID provides at the rate you said their 3g network cant handle it… After jio launch most of the data hungry customers can move to their high capacity network… AVOID is also increasing their capacity by rollingout 4g…
