Airtel launches 4G nationally with a Television Commercial today. Trial run of 4G was already on with customers given a Free 4G SIM. Yes, you are right. We were given a 4G SIM free which was delivered to our home on request. I have heard of high speed internet in the US and always wondered if it will be a possible in our country too. Airtel 4G promises us the capability to experience lightning speeds and something more for all of us. In my experience, it was quite good only that we got so excited with the speed that we ended up watching about 5 movies in a day.
Since our move from a government owned telecom provider to Airtel for Broadband connection, we have moved all our services to Airtel. With so many services from Airtel, managing the various accounts was pretty time consuming during the initial days. We switched to the My Airtel app when it was released and found it easy to manage the services but yet service requests and few other services had glitches in communication. We would not say it was a comprehensive solution then but still it worked for us. Further as the payment landscape changed with the services of Freecharge and PayTM offering more for the buck we switched to using them for our payments. One thing though, we never ventured into Airtel Money because we still did not trust the system to allow mobile to mobile payments. Maybe it is good but we honestly did not try it till now.
