I have to admit that airtel was the first mobile service I used. That was long time ago in Chandigarh.
Since then I have tried a lot other options including Hutch, Tata Indicom and even Aircel.
Now, I am back to airtel. And it took a lot of effort on my part. I have waited for Mobile Number Portability forever… it still has not arrived. airtel stores in my regions turned out to be awful. They are out of prepaid sim cards pretty much all the time. I had to get airtel customer to do something about it.
And when I went to the airtel store to get the sim card recharged, they were incidentally out of prepaid recharge (amazing! Huh?). Anyways… I am now using an airtel prepaid number with their pretty nice data package that costs 100 bucks for 2GB. And it works on roaming!
Data on roaming was the primary reason for my switch to airtel this time around. Of course, they are one of the four options I have here in Gurgaon for 3G services whenever they are launched. But I am not very optimistic about that. I can only hope that their existing 2G plan would remain available and the company would not temper with its speeds in the future.
Tata DOCOMO is being accused by a lot of folks that they have made their 2G speeds so slow now that they have launched 3G.
If you venture out on the roads of Gurgaon during office hours, you would realize that you have landed in a battleground.
And if you are in a luxury car and you are driving yourself, you are going to go nuts and probably bald.
The best mode of transport in these conditions is a bike and that’s what I end up using during the horrid times.
My dad was pretty frustrated last year when I told him that I wanted to buy a bike. I had just sold two hatchbacks to get a sedan and that looked like a very stupid decision after a while. A bike was the logical choice to travel locally and looks like it was a good decision.
I am proud of the people of Delhi NCR who manages to fight it out everyday just to get to their offices and home. They deserve a medal for their courage and patience.
Gurgaon administration has been a complete failure to do ANYTHING to fix the problems in Gurgaon. Earlier it was just traffic. Now we have fcuked up roads and traffic.
