Visited Jorhat a few months ago. Vodafone has a decent 2G coverage there. They were providing 3G services through Airtel’s 3G network which was pathetic. I was unable to open Google homepage at 6pm in the evening. Hope Vodafone launches it’s own 3G network in Guwahati as well. Tired of this bullshit Airtel.

I wish Vodafone launches own 3G service in Karnataka too. It’s working on ICRA now. Vodafone has huge subscriber in Karnataka around 65 lakhs.

They will be launching their own 3G network in Karnataka soon. They already have got 3G spectrum for that.
