The panic situation among the AVOID operators, to launch 4G before Jio has created a lot of cross connections on Idea network in Pune since 1 month. I get connected to Idea customers on the 2nd or 3rd attempt on certain instances. The 1st and 2nd attempts are billed as well. That is why Idea was clearly against the Call Drop Disconnection Charges, which TRAI had asked networks to pay to customers.

Idea plans to launch 4G in ROM&G by Feb 1st week. I hope they are a reliable 4G network, as compared to Airtel.
