Idea has stopped taking North India seriously. In the 3G era, it was on top in coverage in almost entire north, mainly Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi.
But in the past 6 months, Airtel has done a commendable job these areas. I guess if Idea can beat their(Airtel’s) 4G coverage in the next 10 years!

Idea-Voda have no plans for North India, specially Delhi.
The thumb rule for telecom is, if you’re a North India, go for AIRTEL. If you’re South Indian, go for JIO. So please avoid the VoId 😉

Yes! Vodafone network is good in Delhi. But major drawback…it just cracks down on Metro Stations.
But nothing can match Airtel 4G network, atleast in New Delhi and Gurgaon.
