Dont know why they started with these cities instead of Bangalore. Vodafone 3g offers are excellent and i’m not able to use them because of over congested airtel. At night 2 AM i get speed around 1.5 MBPS and at 6 PM around 50 KBPS..

I left Vodafone connection 10 months ago due to unavailability of 3G services. Waiting to be launched , as Air tel 3G is over congested by Air tel, Idea & Vodafone subscribers in Bangalore. We need desperately need a 4th private 3G operator. DoComo 3G stops working after 6PM & Aircel has huge coverage gaps & BSNL 3G never connects.

i beg to differ. i have been using 3g from about 4 years in bangalore and here are my views. airtel 3g (vodafone and idea 3g icra with airtel 3g) – congested always . but airtel 3g coverage is very good. tata docomo 3g- poor speed.i got fed up with its speed in areas like r.t nagar,brigade road,m.g road,nagavara,residency road and all the surrounding areas frm hebbal (place i stay) till residency road. no improvement till now. Aircel 3g- previously was not having good coverage and but improved in bangalore. i travelled from hebbal to iim bangalore many times (about… Read more »

Bro in K R. Puram. Aircel 3g is awesome speed around. I got 8 mbps..and overall aircel 3g best compared to other netwrk in banglore..
i am also using aircel karnataka sim. In tamilnadu for the. Purpose. Of internet

@Zeeshan I admit Aircel 3G is better, it has a stable connection, but still have coverage gaps. I have used Aircel 3G in Kalyan Nagar, even 3 bars gave good speed. I think if Aircel increases towers it can change game in Bangalore. BSNL 3G I bought but never got connected, even the BSNL guys admit that not all the BSNL BTS are 3G enabled in Bangalore. So may be the BSNL BTS in my area isn’t a 3G enabled one.

Yes, true.. Aircel 3g is excellent.. I use it as secondary sim only for data. But if I top up, immediately they deduct all money saying something.. I use Vodafone for calls and aircel for data

October 17, 2015 7:54 am 7:54 AM

i just faced 1 unfair deduction till now on aircel from 5 years. just inbox aircel india on facebook . they will promptly refund if the problem is at their end.

I am regular user of aircel 3g from more than 2 years. And pure 2g voice user of vodafone. Aircel was having low and patchy coverage 2 years back. But now improved lot, especially 3G tower and most importantly speed. I do agree still it’s jumping from H+ to E many times. But with improvements, I seen their offers and price zoomed at 200%. No regrets for that, but from last few months they practising new techniques to earn money. Bcoz aircel feel old method of wrong and unknown activation is not effective. New techniques is quietly change full. Talktime… Read more »
