A few days ago I bought an Aircel mobile connection for use in a data dongle. The 2G speeed was not very good, so I asked for an upgrade to a 3G. It was activated after a day. The speed was reasonably good, so I went in for a Rs 697 3G data package valid for 30 days. A day later I'm still on 2G, with no response at all to my complaint.
Aircel actually has no 3G service in Thiruvananthapuram; it operates through Tata Docomo. The mobile store keeper knew this but still sold me an Aircel card, probably because Aircel pays a higher commission.
