Rishabh Gupta, while on his way back to India from the US, was excited about the 3G services in India. After all, he had experienced the fast speed data network in New York City. To his horror, he found that 3G services in India were still not stable enough to be reliable. "I am on Airtel 3G services and they are pathetic," he says. "Most of the time, the 3G data speeds are very slow and the network seems to disappear ever so often, making accessing anything on my tablet a pain. I wonder why I am paying so much to the operator for such a bad show."
@jainrounak Airtel has been disappointing in Hyderabad. Get around 300-500
@deepakchan Far less satisfying than even our neighboring country Sri Lanka.
@ankit_me Delhi/NCR circle #Vodafone, better than #Airtel. Bangalore - BSNL is the best. Mumbai - mixed reaction.
@sanjaybafna Using MTNL 3G in Mumbai as well as National Roaming on BSNL since May 2009, no problem at all, Speed 2 Mbps to 2.5 Mbps.
@KetakiManikeri I use Vodafone 3G in Mumbai. As of now I am very satisfied. Internet is much faster and albeit what everyone says it isn't that expensive!
@rajupp Extremely happy with my BSNL 3G (in Bangalore) on iPad. Works great within city and switches to edge in remotest of areas.
@gaurav2811 3G on MTNL in Delhi is cheap but the problem with them is the signal strength which hinders the performance of 3G and sucks the battery.
@nilayshah80 My experience with MTNL and BSNL 3G very good till date. More than 1 year and just two call to customer care. I m from Pune and used 3G in Mumbai and Ahmedabad too.
@Gautam Mahtani I am using Vodafone 3G in Bangalore but they are using Airtel network to source the same. Generally there are no issues but at times it just does not connect and fails to switch back to GPRS/EDGE automatically. Also have noticed at times it does not go back to 3G and remains on GPRS/EDGE and then have to manually go n select it though it is 'on'
@Gaurang Bhartia: BSNL/MTNL : 3G works at average speed of .5-1 mbps (Depending on time of the day and signal levels) in Delhi. About 1.5-2 Mbps in Vijayawada.
