OFF TOPIC: I am getting Idea 4G Number/Customer specific special offers for Rs 146 -1GB- 4G Data with 28 days validity,I think it’s OK offer wen compared to FraudTel and Fraudofone offers.And the funniest thing is wen checked Ideas 2g packs it costs more wen compared to 3g and 4g packs for my Idea number.I think they are giving this 4G offer to make me get to use their 4G network and become an Data customer for Idea..

May 13, 2016 10:36 pm 10:36 PM

Idea is actually good as of now. Even I’m using Idea 4G. I left Aircel. I’m really happy. And my mother’s Airtel number is getting similar offers.

@Pavan: Ya it seems like Avoid giving such okish offers only for users who don’t use them for data purposes but wen we fall for it then they will slowly increase the data packs prices in these special offerings.. ..

Keep two or three AVOID sims… Use it alternately then you will get the offer continously… How is idea 4g coverage in Hosur… I think idea has very poor coverage in tamilnadu circle and also you cant access all the 3g towers of vodafone…
In bangalore my sister is using idea 4g… she opted for it because her phone doesnt support 2300mhz 4g and so she cant use airtel 4g over there… she got a good postpaid corporate sim offer… for just 299rs 600 loc+std mins, 1gb 4g/3g after that unlimited at 2g speeds and also some sms…

@Mohammed Junaid: Ya u r8 it’s better to have two to three Avoid’s Sims to periodically get Special Data offers in either of the Sims but I am never gonna try Airtel/Vodafone in my entire life time because I hate them a lot.Idea has gud 4G coverage in my Area but in T.N as a whole it’s coverage is bad,never tried latching to Vodafone’s 3G from Idea Sim because I am afraid to do so as Idea might deduct balance fraudently wen latching on Vodafone’s 3G.By the just checked now,don’t know how it’s surprising Airtel extended it’s 4G coverage in… Read more »

Happy to hear that airtel 4g reached your area… that’s what i said you before to wait… It’s a 3 year program and they are serious this time.. One of the best network upgradation I have seen in Indian telecom industry… As a telecom user I wish to have quality networks rather than cheap unusable networks..

True. But as of now its fine. Once they start playing their tricks we always have an option to exit or port out of their network.

@Pavan: Ya true we have options to port but Idea only offers me cheap call rates in T.N so a question arises to whom else I could port for calling purposes,I will hav to buy New Idea sim if incase they decrease my calling benefits in my old Idea number….

May 14, 2016 10:51 pm 10:51 PM

How about Aircel? In Karnataka, Aircel seems to be the cheapest.

@Pavan: Ya I too heard abt Aircel giving gud Data+Talk Time Combo packs in T.N wen recharged from their website but don’t know whether Aircel offers any such low calling offers likewise Idea which is Free for Six months.And I also heard Aircel fraudly deducts money a lot by Fraud Vas Activations that’s what makes me to stay away from Aircel.Lastly my mom uses Aircel postpaid CUG sim which she is forced to use it for Govt/office purposes where once Aircel charged my Mom extra bill as On-time Yearly Renewal charges(Forgot abt the exact amount charges) but she has no… Read more »

Im using vodafone 4G on my smartphone & vodafone 3G hotspot for my official work. 3G in vodafone is a big mess, Doesnt work at all in some places & speed is always below 1.5mbps.
Vodafone 4G is a class. I love it & infact it is far superior than Airtel 4G.

Airtel will be launching 4G in 1800Mhz shortly which I believe will match voda’s 4G.

I agree. They recently launched 3G and so soon it got congested in banglore. But once i had a chance to visit tumkur. Over there vodafone 3G is as smooth as butter.
