Vodafone is best No.1 in my city
Airtel is okay (Poor in 3G Speed & Coverage here)
BSNL – No proper 2G itself network
AIRCEL – Worst ever
Reliance – Worst on GSM
TATA DOCOMO – Chor company.
Idea – Okay, not bad

AirTel – Vodafone – Idea is obeyin TRAI guideline on roaming plans.
Don’t know what will hapend to operators Videocon – TATA – MTS
Reliance & AIRCEL will follow
