In my review of Airtel broadband modem and 3.75G service weeks ago, I promised a second part based on what I believed to be improvements in Airtel’s 3.75G coverage.
Well, I was wrong, and there was no improvement. It was just a temporary fluctuation. 3.75G service here remains patchy and unusable for the most part. As such, I have had to peg the modem at “WCDMA Preferred”, which means it would seek out a 3G signal first, and default to EDGE where that is not available.
As such, I mostly get an internet connection on EDGE at my location. That screenshot above? That’s what my connection is like on the average at my end. Airtel 3.75G is practically non-existent here. That’s the wrap up, guys.
