I am also from Karnataka. Vodafone 2G is no longer available at my place and the 3G is also from some far away tower.
Earlier tower near my house had Airtel(2G,3G&4G), Idea (2G&4G) and Vodafone(2G) but now only Airtel and Idea are available. Probably Idea 4G will also disappear since I live in a rural place.
