Waiting for Telenor 4G in Bihar..
Because I’m not able to use your 2G internet in computer system PC.. Connection is so poor.. and even dialling authenticate fails.. means no internet connection is generated.. Waiting for Telenor 4G..
Browsing speed is 1-2kps & sometimes in bites.. Downloading speed is 3-4kbs and sometimes when network is good 8-9kbs in mobile phone
