Quick and Overall Review of Airtel MyPlan
I have been using Airtel postpaid and its myPlan in Rajasthan telecom circle from last 3 months and I am pretty satisfied. I ported in from BSNL because of two main reason, its call drop problem over 3G networks and not friendly plan managing system (every-time I was supposed to go to the BSNL office for any change). My both problems were solved with Airtel and what I loved was its customized mode.
However, I know that I am paying a bit more for my plan as Reliance is offering similar things in less but I am a frequent traveler and Reliance is among the worst networks for travelers.
