Latest update on Airtel:- Airtel withdraw all its 121 best 3G offers from all of its prepaid numbers. They already hiked their 3G tariffs silently and follow what idea did 2 days ago in Delhi circle without updating in their site and also they didn’t let customers about this… Double blunder for those who recharge their 3G without knowing this hike in tariff… Their website still showing old tariffs…. Be ready for some more bad news from Vodafone also soon..
