Vodafone network has became worse in Kolkata. I don’t want to leave Vodafone but I have to. Airtel has better coverage at my residence as well as in Unitech Kolakata where I work.

Almost Every operator is giving combo offers for mnp customers with talktime+data+Ratecutter in just around 50-100rs..its a good deal for customers..So customer is getting more benifite in less money.So they opt for mnp..recently i ported to reliance gsm..i paid just 50rs..they gave me rs.5 TT,all local std call 25ps/min for 4 months,500 mb data/month for 3 months,and first 2 sms of day chargable thereafter 98 free…now tell if m getting these all in just 50rs..then everyone would opt for mnp .
