Airtel has very poor calling f acility in Kerala … Poor coverage and call drops are experienced…..Only 4G is good .. That too in terms of speed only 40 Mbps range.. It is not at all consistent and shows no service every now and then in Calicut .. I get a lot of missed call alerts everyday because of this .. Used to like Airtel , but this is sad … Now , I am porting to Voda postpaid from Airtel postpaid …they have about 29 Mbps max speed and that is good .. The best thing is that unlike… Read more »

Actually Kerala is Airtel’s weakest circle, wrt 2G and 3G as its behind Idea, Vodafone, BSNL wrt 2G coverage and almost all its even small competitors (incl Aircel, Tata) have their own 3G license there.
.
But it looks like wrt 4G, Kerala is Airtel’s strongest circle having both Band 3 + Band 40 spectrum and covered 100+ towns already.. I wonder whether Aircel or Tata has covered that much towns via 3G by now?

Airtel 4G is great.. for 3G it will fall back to idea 3G ..
Satisfied it.
I am getting 37 Mbps speed in airtel 4G, 5 Mhz of 1800 Mhz spectrum alone..
.
Actually there is no much need of Airtel 2G for me as idea 3G is decently powerful enough as far as coverage is concerned because of that i will be in 3G only mode always in airtel.

Try vVodafone 4G .. Calls get connected faster and no call drops .. Good indoor coverage and speed.. Airtel and Idea very poor in this…
For download speed Airtel is best
40’mbps Airtel
29 voda
16 Idea …..
Considering everything together , Voda is better … Airtel 4G can best be experienced inside HiLite mall …
Idea is very poor now .. Idea/Airtel 3G is very poor .. 2-3 Mbps speed only .. Compared to call 7-8 Mbps .. But Voda 4g is absent in backward districts… RIP IDEA
