Best mobile network in Chennai, Tamilnadu
This article suites all regions of Tamilnadu . There are several network / service provider in Tamilnadu. Everyone will be confused which network to choose. Each network has its own specialty and here I have listed those.
Messaging is the main thing for students to keep touch with their friend. I frequently change SIM card because of unsatisfied service. Finally I find Airtel and IDEA is best for SMS packs. For Airtel vs IDEA I go for Airtel. Airtel has many choice for SMS pack while IDEA doesn't. This both network will deliver SMS within one second. There will be slight delay in other network.
Airtel, Vodafone are standard networks with good network connectivity. But problem with them is they cost you high. If you need a standard as well as budget network go for Aircel or IDEA. This both network has good choice for calling in cheaper price. Tata Docomo suites for lovers. It has unlimited calling packs. Make sure does your area has good network connectivity. If there go for it. There will be good connectivity in cities like Chennai, Madurai, Trichy and Coimbatore. I don't know about Reliance but I hear they provide good offers.
For home use
For home usage means using your mobile like landline then choose MTS. MTS offers free unlimited onnet calls without any booster pack. You can get this mobile for just Rs.500 with SIM card. Suppose you and your family members have this mobile then you no need to spend extra money for call. Other calls cost you 29p per minute. Main thing I suggested this mobile for home use because elders don't know about booster packs. Regarding network tower, its up to 3 points out of 5 in my mobile. Other network with such option is Videocon.
For 2G internet
Current networks have EDGE facility which is upgraded version of GPRS. For 2G internet all networks serve well. It depends on your mobile phone you use. Airtel have good internet page loading speed when compared to others.
3G services are provided by only few networks in Tamilnadu. Aircel will save lot of money as it has unlimited packs. So I support it. There may be other networks with unlimited plan but check whether the 3G is available for respective network in Tamilnadu. 3G will be available only in selected cities. It is better to access internet via Wi-Fi if you have smartphone. Other service provider that offer 3G services are BSNL, Airtel and Vodafone. These network doesn't have any unlimited plan. You can't enjoy 3G without unlimited packs. 3G data will be too fast and you can burn 20MB within a second. If you know any unlimited packs available in other networks then you can go for it.
Good compilation, though you might want to check your information about Tata Docomo in Chennai; they claim to not have 3G - only 2G.
You are right. Docomo 3G is not available in Tamilnadu. Thanks for your response.
