    Default Aircel - GPRS Worst Speed - Alternative Option

    hi,

    i am purchase Aircel SIM on November and they are activate my SIM after one month

    i can't pay more then Rs.300/m so i am activate Aircel GPRS, but their speed is very very poor and slow.

    Problems: 1. Auto Disconnect - Every 15 Seconds to 5 minutes.
    2. Very Very Poor Speed, 0.200 Bites Per Second (i have poof)
    3. if you're open any site then you need to wait at least 5 minutes to 20 minutes.
    4. i am open Yahoo.com and after 1 hour aircel still open yahoo.com...

    Aircel = Fraud, Scammers,etc....


    Best Option is go With AirTel, Same Price, Better Upload Speed(Upto 71kbps), Download Speed is 3 - 4kbps(Poor but ok for Price)

    Airtel Hidden Rule(Hidden Fraud) - Max 2GB Download/Upload Per Month

    " I have a story which is quite opposite, Aircel Pocket internet gives around 40-60 kbps speed and which is fair enough for Rs 98 unlimited offer. Since you are facing slow speed problem try resetting the GPRS settings, I am sure this will help.

    Aircel GPRS was fast initially, but later they reduced their speed to a great extent, i think Aircel GPRS is not very good << so better to get GPRS of other companies, maybe Airtel, they provide 2GB for Rs 98, atleast they have fast speeds.

    Same thing happened to me. Initially the speed was high, but later it sinked to very low speed. I tried to talk with the customer care, they registered a complaint and someone called me. After some time, he assured call again. Which never happened.

    yup, it looks like as it was a new company, it gave high speed just to attract customers, but not now. It still has good network, but no good SMS plans.

    GPRS is like dial-up (54 kbps). Don't expect miracles. It is OK for very light surfing on WAP sites and some basic email (text only).

    Guys, i agree that aircel internet speed is low, but only in some areas.

    But first of all you all r using GPRS which surprises me how u r complaining using a gprs. As jsut4kix said its like a dial-up modem if u r trying to use ur phone as modem then its the most foolish thing u r doing. It will obviously load pages after years and years. Its only good for mobile surfing. Atleast if you use EGDE you can browse.

    Aircel used to give blazing fast speeds when it was newly launched. Used to get 8-9 kBps on a class 10 gprs phone. On EDGE class 32 it gave around 16 kBps average. Speeds plunged once the traffic grew (courtesy the Rs 98 plan). Speed is still good @ midnight till 9-10 am. I only use it for running torrents now.

    the alternative option depends on which area u live in, and which phone u use

    well buddy, i am facing this problem since last year whenever i am going to my home town.. edge there stinks.. disconnects all night// and not just aircel, the docomo and everyone out there..
    its a network problem. low signals = more disconnections..

    i dont know what the guys who did 33 /- recharge for night time net on docomo do.. because in night i never got connected using a docomo..

    Well in my case Aircel is giving better speed around 30 KBps(DL). Everyone in my locality is happy with aircel internet speed whether it's PC or mobile.
