Their 2g service is not up to the mark. 18-20 KBps on their so called 2.75g and they are thinking of launching 4g. Just day dreaming nothing else.

They don’t even have their own network in whole haryana. I was going to jaipur via delhi and in ncr while roaming it latched to vodafone and even after Moving out of ncr and coming back to haryana circle(manesar,rewari) the roaming reminder of R didn’t go away. So after searching manually i didn’t get any videocon signal and it failed to latch on to tata docomo even manually. So basically i was in roaming in home network itself. It happened to me thrice.
