Jio in ROB circle have some serious coverage issues …. In Dist Hooghly Along the Bandel Bardhaman Main Line only key areas are covered… I mean in 50% Areas my Wind 4 Was out of service … AVido group have seamless 3G on the maximum areas there(Almost 80%) … But surpised to see that Jio doesnot covered those areas.They Just installed Jio antennas in existing RCom Towers there … there area a lot of areas where Jio need to install their own cell site …
