Airtel GPRS — Very Slow Speeds

Dear Sir,
I am experiencing very slow speeds on my Airtel Connection. I use internet generally on my mobile phone itself and I have found the speed to be very unsatisfactory. I am using one of the newest Android handsets, rest assured ...the problem is not with my mobile phone. I have the [protected]@Rs98 pack activated on my mobile. But with the current speeds I dont think I will even be able to use 300-400 MB. I am using your EDGE network and to the best of my knowledge the speeds are supposed to be much better than 2-3 KBps than i am getting right now. I suspect you are throttling the GPRS Unlimited plan users. Just to mention than I recently switched to Airtel, from CUG Vodafone plan (for which my company was paying the bills), just so that I can use the internet without hassles. Is this how you plan to get loyal customers?
My phone number is [protected].
Kindly address the issue.

I am customer of airtel mobile service providers from past 3 years .But nowdays what thy are doing is they starts the hellotune offer and cuts the money ..This is happened 4 times with me and they havnt provide option to contact with the call center executive .So it is difficult to adjust with it.Bcoz they are cheating us they must refund our money and more on that shouldnt cheat customers bcoz this is happened with lots of customers .Many of them shifted to other provider.
The airtel gprs network congested after they introduced the 98 pack. the speed now are very slow...

They are working on the issue but cant resolve it due to large amount of prepaid users using the 98 pack and accessing the tower at the same time...

only way they can improve the speed is by removing the 98 rs internet pack...
Airtel is no;1 network in india and having good coverage area.and new offers.but now wards airtelgprs speed ingesed a little even thow not enough to our needs.we costemers whant to get the maximam speed airtel offering that must concider airtel.
in case of gprs aircel is better speed than least whe need airtel overcome them.becose a large amount of peole who tring airtel gprs is reduced day by day du to slow speed conetion.and still standing with only a small hope that good network coverage.if airtel ingrease speed airtel can change nop plan to good rate.for eg;13 rupees (3 days validitty)nop can change into 15 and 3 days validity change to 2 days.and bsnl also having good speed without 3g it i expeting good responding from airel as a regular gprs costemer or a lot of peole who ready to avoid airtel conetion.this is a comen complant we hop a goog responce from airtel the no;1
network of india
Dear sir,
airtel gprs is not giving offerd speed to conumer.and two slow
The problem reported by puneet on 28 apr 2010 is not fully resolved .

In some places the problem is fully resolved, but a lot of customers are still experiencing the problem due to overloaded towers and airtel did nothing to solve this.

I am a postpaid customer.I reported the same problem on march first week 2010 to the nodal officer of kerala Mr Robin. every time i called him he said they are working on the issue & will resolve it in a week. Nodal office told me that the tower i use is over the capacity.

It took 3 months for airtel to make an improvement in the gprs speed.Even after that the speeds are pretty low, it just improved nothing else.

the speed of aitrel gprs before they introduced 98 pack was 160-200 Kbps even in peak time & the speed right now is still below 100 Kbps and highly fluctuating.

The only way airtel can resolve this issue is by Removing the 98rs Gprs pack & upgrade their servers and towers & start the pack again. so that the other customers not get affected by it.

I am now using Tata Docomo for gprs which gives me a speed of 160-180 Kbps even in peak times.

i live in chhattisgarh korba i m facing the same problem with 98 pack of 2GB in airtel pre. the speed is toooooooo slow so i call to customer care and complaint for very slow speed they register my complaint & given complaint number 00200200 & said problem is solved in 3 days but they do nothing i m still facing the same problem so i decided if the speed is not improve before 25th june i switch to docomo which provide good speed as my friend said.
Airtel's a great brand but the GPRS is terrible...moreover they arn't bringing 3g to punjab according to the bidding results... cmon guys u call this brand reputation??? why cant airtel do something about simple edge speeds? and if no 3g in punjab airtel is definately gna loose customers in this area...
i am a postpaid airtel customer, Edge speed before the introduction of 98 pack was 160 kps and now its 10-30 kpbs.

i am protesting by not paying my monthly bill till speed come back to the level it was few months ago.

all you guys do the same thing, no bill payment means no revenue, & airtel will learn form it.

use reliance tata idea or bsnl for gprs for good speed. at least they keep the promise of a BIG Brand.
Airtel is the worst GPRS/EDGE service provider, customer service very poor.I was having a low speed problem with airtel.After informing the customer care the speed got even worse.This shows the people there in Airtel dont posses any expertise in solving the problem.I'm getting speeds of 2-5KB/sec of speed after their person from AIRTEL technical team laid his hands.For high speeds with less variations go for BSNL EDGE/GPRS.For good customer service go to aircel, with little less speed but unlimited downloading
