Reliance just sucks .No voice clarity ,even in full Network voice gets crack every time.3G speed is good 2-4Mbps .About 2G its horrible download speed only 3-8KBps while uploading is speed is somewhat good.The most frusted is Voice clarity even after complaining many times till now i didn’t got the solution Voice cracks too much and while calling it beeps very much .Using Airtel as primary sim since last 5 years n in airtel never faced any such issue .
