Airtel — network hopeless for mobile no.9830140994

 Kannuu on Mar 22, 2019
The above said mobile no. Is used in my family but though the porting our was done in september 2017 the connection is hopeless and the payment for postpaid bills is unreasonable since neither the data nor the phone calls are connected most of the tomes - customers are being charged without providing the services provided.
Even for mobile nos.[protected] and [protected] the charges are made for local, national and isd sms although no isd sms is being sent nor the sms limit of 100/day are crossed...

Airtel — very slow 4g internet speed in area

 Arjun Zutshi on Mar 21, 2019
Current location is birla colony, satna, mp.

I purchased rs 1000 prepaid plan for my mobile number xxxxxxx243085 which has unlimited validity. but inspite of that after every 28 days, an amount of rs. 23 is getting deducted. in complaint to airtel support desk, they refunded it for previous 2 times but the deduction of rs. 23 is continuing again after that. i wrote to them again about it but they are not taking any action.
Same is happening with my mother's number for the same plan.

Airtel — poor internet connection - complaint

 Sivarajan1704 on Mar 21, 2019
Hi airtel,

I am using airtel more than 6 years and i have been to many places across india but i never facing issue like now i am facing, no i am located in bangalore brookfield area here airtel is not taking completely. To download 6 mb app it is always taking 25 mins, youtube is not taking, whatsapp text messages getting delivered after 1 or 2 mins. If it continues for 1 more day i don't have any option other than changing network.
To check the speed of internet i downloaded speed test app but after 30 mins of struggle finally i tested the speed successfully.

Airtel — airtel poor service since 6 years+

 slbhavani12 on Mar 20, 2019
Respected team,

I am a very loyal customer of airtel for the past 10+ years. I have 7 postpaid connections of airtel mobile phone since many years. I have a great opinion on the service provider. Unfortunately, this seems to be a blind belief on them. I am living in kukatpally area in hyderabad. I appreciate the signal width of airtel even in remote areas but for the past 6 years i cant get signals in my home. Including old aged family members at my home who are 70+ need to go out of my house to take call or talk to someone. We as youngsters can do it but i see my parents being unable...
