Agree with you.. As videocon have shitty coverage, people will just buy a Sim, use it for 3 month, then will port to Airtel and will sell it with a price over 10k ????

@Duane-Bro u should know that Airtel is not a quality driven operator at every circle. In case of Gujarat Airtel has the bakwaas coverage quality, u should visit Gujarat and taste it, it is very simple to understand that Airtel do not holds 900 mhz or any low frequency band in Gujarat, so it’s easy to judge what’s the quality is offered by airtel in Gujarat.
